As per usual, Windows Phone ad advertising service AdDuplex has published stats obtained from its network concerning the state of Windows Phone in many regions. For most most of us, It doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that Nokia’s Lumia devices now make up an impressive 83 percent of the worldwide Windows Phone marketshare worldwide
Most notably from the report is that Windows Phone 8 devices now makes up 53% of all Windows Phones handsets, meaning the latest version of the OS has overtaken Windows Phone 7.x. We expect it will be a couple more years at this rate to have nearly everyone upgraded to WP8, but the release of “Windows Phone Blue” should help win over those hesitant to make the switch.
In carrier related statistics, we see the Windows Phone market grow in Verizon Wireless’ favor holding 43% over AT&T’s now 39%. Quite a drastic change from earlier this year and considering AT&T’s exclusivity on Nokia’s flagship Lumia 920 device. Almost certainly, this is due to the release of Verizon’s Lumia 928, which has already snagged a generous slice of the Windows Phone pie chart in less than a month. T-Mobile is still holding a strong 14% and all other combined carriers of Microsoft’s current mobile operating system control the remaining 4%.
Other released information spoke highly of the newer Lumia 520 and 720 budget handsets in the Indian market. The 520 has risen almost 4% to 20.8% and the 720 almost doubled its share.
