Microsoft’s share of U.S. smartphone market still at 4 percent

The launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 — the flagship Windows Phone — in April didn’t seem to give Microsoft much of a bump in smartphone share.

Microsoft’s share of the U.S. smartphone market remained at 4 percent for the three months ended in May, according to comScore.

That’s the same percentage as for the three months ended in April.

The May figure is up slightly from the 3.9 percent of the U.S. smartphone market that Microsoft platforms (which include Windows Phone and the outdated Windows Mobile) held for the three months ended in February.

But given that Microsoft just announced that current owners of Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 7.5 handsets (including the Lumia 900) won’t be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 8, the company’s market share probably won’t go up dramatically anytime soon.

Here’s comScore’s chart:
