Windows Phone U.S. subscriber share still not going up, according to comScore [updated]

Research firm comScore today released its latest figures on U.S. smartphone subscriber market share and the news still isn’t good for Windows Phone.

For the three months ended in January, Microsoft (with its Windows Phone and old Windows Mobile platforms) had 3.1 percent of U.S. subscribers, down from 3.2 percent for the three months ended in October. 2011. During that same period, both Google’s and BlackBerry’s shares declined while Apple’s went up.

[Update 3/7/13: Some readers have pointed out, correctly, that though the 3.1 percentage share is down from the three months ended in October, it is up sequentially from the three months that ended in December. Back then, Microsoft had 2.9 percent of the U.S. smartphone subscriber share.]

Here’s comScore’s chart for the three months ended in January:
