The latest figures show Windows Phone gaining little traction in the U.S. smartphone market, mired at 3.2% market share in August. And that's just the beginning of the bad news for Microsoft in the U.S. mobile market.
Comshare's latest report about the U.S. smartphone market
has only bad news for Microsoft. As of August, Windows Phone had only a 3.2% market share, up only 0.2% since May. Android had 51.6% and Apple 40.7%. Even BlackBerry beat out Microsoft, with 4%, although BlackBerry dropped 0.8% since May, and so it's likely that Windows Phone will overtake it soon.
