Windows Phone making gains in U.S., according to Kantar

Windows Phone is making strides in the U.S. market, becoming the third most popular smartphone operating system, according to research firm Kantar Worldpanel’s ComTech division.

Kantar’s latest figures show Windows Phone as holding 4.1 percent of smartphone sales in the U.S. for the three months ending in February. That’s up from from 2.7 percent a year ago, according to Kantar, and up from 2.6 percent for the three months ended in December.

Android was the No. 1 smartphone OS in the U.S. for the three months ended in February, with 51.2 percent of sales (up 5.8 percent from last year), while iOS was second with 43.5 percent (down 3.5 percent).

BlackBerry, the company formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM), plummeted from 3.6 percent of smartphone sales for the same time period last year to 0.7 percent this year.
