Windows Phone passes BlackBerry
Wow, bad news for BlackBerry.
Windows Phone, meanwhile, saw some significant gains. Shipments increased from 3 million in the first quarter of 2012 to 7 million over the last three months. It’s arguably a small rise, but one that brings its market share up to 3.2 percent for overall smartphone shipments for the period. The 0.3 percent lead over BlackBerry suggests that we’ll see the two platforms swap places throughout the year.
