Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Microsoft’s U.S. smartphone market share down

Microsoft’s already tiny share of the U.S. smartphone market dropped for the three months ended in October, leaving the company with a 3.2 percent share.

That’s according to comScore’s latest figures, which shows both Android and Apple gaining slightly in the same period.

Microsoft’s smartphone platform (which includes both Windows Phone and the outdated Windows Mobile) declined from 3.6 percent of the market for the three months ended in September, as well as for the three months ended in July.

Given that Windows Phone 8 launched in late October/early November — and that people who purchase Windows Phone 7.x handsets wouldn’t have been able to get upgrades to Windows Phone 8 — it’s perhaps not surprising that Microsoft’s smartphone platform declined during the three months ended in October. The test will be to see if it rises in comScore’s report next month.

Here’s comScore’s chart:
