The trends of the past few months continue and there are no major changes of note beyond an increase in the number of devices running Windows 10 Mobile.

In addition to our usual global and US specific figures, we also look at device usage in the Benelux nations, Finland, Poland, Thailand, Vietnam and Mexico.

With details about the devices which will officially be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile announced this month we’ve taken a look at what this means for potential market share changes and how many have already taken advantage of this.

  2. 2. Windows Phone Statistics Report The trends of the past few months continue and there are no major changes of note beyond an increase in the number of devices running Windows 10 Mobile. In addition to our usual global and US specific figures, we also look at device usage in the Benelux nations, Finland, Poland, Thailand, Vietnam and Mexico. With details about the devices which will officially be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile announced this month we’ve taken a look at what this means for potential market share changes and how many have already taken advantage of this. www.adduplex.com 2 March 18th, AdDuplex
  3. 3. Data Source This report is based on data collected from 5,120 Windows Phone apps running AdDuplex SDK v.2 (and higher). The raw data analyzed was collected over the day of March 18th, 2016 (UTC time) unless otherwise stated. We have made every attempt to consolidate different reported phone model names under their canonical retail model names, but it is possible that some of the rare model name variations were not accounted for. AdDuplex is the largest cross-promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows Store apps and games empowering developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other. AdDuplex was established in January 2011 in Vilnius, Lithuania. As of March 2016, more than 10,000 apps actively use AdDuplex to gain more visibility.
