Windows Phone, Android smartphone market share up; iOS down

Windows Phone’s worldwide market share edged up from 3.1 percent in the second quarter of last year to 3.7 percent this year, cementing its third-place rank among smartphone operating systems.

That’s according to research firm IDC, which also notes that Windows Phone shipped 8.7 million units in the second quarter of this year, up from 4.9 million in the year-ago period.

IDC attributed the gain mainly to Nokia, which accounted for 81.6 percent of all Windows Phone shipped in the second quarter.

Windows Phone beat No. 4 BlackBerry, whose market share declined from 4.9 percent to 2.9 percent during the same time period.

Apple’s iOS declined too, from 16.6 percent to 13.2 percent, while Android’s rose from 69.1 percent to 79.3 percent.

Here’s IDC’s chart:
