Windows Phone sales double (but still only 3% marketshare)

Neowin points out sales of Windows Phone devices have soared 119 percent in Q1 2014 versus the year before. However, despite the large increase in sales the marketshare of the platform is still only 3 percent.

Android reigns surpreme with 44 percent of the market, and another 13 percent is taken by so-called Android Open Source Project (AOSP) handsets. Apple takes another 10 percent and the final 30 percent is from "basic mobile phones".
According to this info, unsurprisingly, Android still dominates the mobile phone sales for this year’s Q1. Google’s OS comes in at 44% of the total market, with another 15% taken up by AOSP handsets. That’s 24% year on year growth for Android.

Windows Phone is also doing well though its numbers are way smaller. As we mentioned Microsoft’s platform now sells 119% more devices compared to Q1 of 2013. However, its marketshare is still only a meagre 3% with only 13.2 million devices sold during the past three months.

Finally Apple’s iPhone is pretty much stagnating in terms of marketshare and growth. Apple’s sales account for 10% of the market during Q1, with 44 million device sold. That’s up 17% year on year, but it’s down 14% compared to Q4 of last year. Then again, we may see these numbers rise in Q2, as the first months of the year are generally slow for the tech industry.
