Kantar Worldpanel’s smartphones sales share report for 3 months ending May 2015 is again a mix bag for Windows Phone. In Europe it is mostly good news for Windows Phone!! It seems that while sales share has gone up in UK and Italy on a Month on Month basis, the EU5 share has also increased from 9.2% last month to 9.5% in May. Check the last Month figures below.
But outside of Europe results are not as good, if you especially take Month on Month comparison into account. If we talk about Year on Year sales share comparison however, Windows Phone has grown in most of the markets.
Microsoft has recently announced some compelling devices starting with Lumia 535 and has continued this trend with likes of Lumia 435, Lumia 532 at low-end. The very recently announced and now available mid-rangers like Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL should also help Windows Phone to capture more sales share in coming months.
