European and US markets show rise in Windows Phone sales

Windows Phone continues its robust growth all over the globe. According to a new Kantar report, following changes that took place in the month of February, Microsoft’s operating system for smartphones has seen a significant growth in many regions, including USA, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

In Europe, which like the majority of the regions is dominated by Android, Windows Phone now powers 9.7% of handsets. It has done pretty well in other regions as well. Gaining around 1.2% of market share, Windows Phone now powers around 5.3% of handsets in USA. Similarly, in United Kingdom, the OS has allured 3.4% new users as a result of which its share has finally reached double figures with 10.1%.

Furthermore, in Germany, the company has gained 2.1% to see the share percentage rise from 5.4 to 7.5 in a course of one year. Echoing a similar share boost in Italy, the company has seen a 4.1% growth.

Now Microsoft needs to concern itself with Japan and China, where the company’s mobile operating system is yet to see some traction. In Japan, there is a drop of 0.2%, whereas in China, Windows Phone has fell by 0.3%.
