Android continues to grow in the US as it currently holds 51.7 percent of the smartphone sales market through the three-month period ending April 2013. Apple, in second, currently holds 41.4 percent, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone is in third with 5.6 percent. The interesting news here though is that Windows Phone has seen higher year over year gains than Android. Windows Phone has experienced 1.8 percentage points growth this year and shows no signs of stopping. Not only that, Windows Phone’s growth history is such that the uptake of Microsoft’s mobile offering has been quicker than Androids original uptake.
