Every month Alan Mendelevich (@ailon) treats us to Windows Phone data from AdDuplex. As you know, AdDuplex is his cross-promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps. The platform is a great way for developers to gain more exposure for their own apps. Today we're getting a look at the Windows Phone ecosystem for the month of June 2014. Did the release of the Lumia 630 slightly bump the Windows Phone 8.1 install base? Which new OEMs made the list? Those are just some of the questions we'll answer. Read on for all the info you could want.
7.7 percent of Windows Phones have Windows Phone 8.1
Windows Phone 8.1 was launched over two months ago on April 14 through the Preview for Developers program. This allowed developers and enthusiasts to install and upgrade to the newest version of Windows Phone with Cortana, Notification Center and more. Last month 5.2 percent of devices had Windows Phone 8.1 on it, now it's up to 7.7 percent. We expect that number to dramatically jump in the coming weeks as the update will officially begin rolling out to consumers.
Windows Phone 7.x clings to life with 17.0 percent, while Windows Phone 8.0 thrives at 75.3 percent.
Lumia 520 has peaked
Last month the Lumia 520 held 33.7 percent of the global Windows Phone device market, it's now lost share and holds 31.6 percent. The number two and three position haven't changed this month. Both the Lumia 625 (7.3 percent) and the Lumia 920 (6.9 percent) still help to round up the top three. The Lumia 630 is slowly appearing in more marketplaces and has moved up 10 places to now occupy the 20th slot for worldwide devices.
