Analytics group mtiks has put together a new report based on what WP7 phones are being used, and in what countries. If you look at the device breakdown, there seem to be two versions of the HTC HD7, which is the most popular device at 35% of the market, followed by 24% who use the Samsung Focus. Based purely on manufacturer, the numbers are:
Man, where are the rest of the manufacturers who signed up as launch partners?
The country-by-country breakdown is interesting. Given the effort Microsoft put into Europe at launch, I’m surprised the USA is still more than half of all users, but the market share devoted to the EU is still substantial.
As always with this sort of analysis, you should be critical about what isn’t said: how they gathered the numbers, and how big the sample size is.
