Windows Phone Expected to Pass BlackBerry in November

PCWorld: StatCounter has published a new report which asserts that if current trends continue, Windows Phone could have more users than BlackBerry by November. In the third week of 2012, RIM’s BlackBerry platform had 6 percent of the smartphone market, but it has dropped steadily since then. By November, the OS will likely slip below 2 percent of the U.S. market.

In contrast, Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has been slowly but steadily gaining market share in the U.S. In addition, Microsoft and Nokia are expected to announce new phones on September 5. That could accelerate the platform’s growth. Meanwhile, BlackBerry has postponed its new handset introduction until next year.

Even if it overtakes BlackBerry, Windows Phone will still be a very minor player with around 2 percent of the U.S. market.
