I posted previously about mobile market share and the growth of Windows Phone. A new IDC report has shown the platform has experienced high growth and is the fastest growing operating system.
The IDC data suggests that Windows Phone increased shipments of 156% year on year for the third quarter. 3.7 million handsets were moved in Q3 2012 and this year 9.5 million.
That may look small compared to Android’s 211.6 million and 33.8 million Apple handset but shows impressive growth for the platform when compared to Blackberry’s 4.5 million handsets especially.
Nokia was responsible for 93.2% of those Windows handsets sold.
