Windows Phone fragmentation continues, but Windows 8.1 takes larger chunk Thanks to the most recent monthly data from ad network AdDuplex, we have a better look at fragmentation within the Windows Phone ecosystem, and how quickly Windows Phone 8.1 is taking over.
The ad network takes data from nearly 4500 apps, and can give stats on usage break downs.

Windows Phone 8 remains in the lead at 56.5 percent share, followed by Windows Phone 8.1 at 24.4 percent and somehow, Window Phone 7.x at 19.2 percent, despite being discontinued a long time ago.

Unsurprisingly, Nokia is the entire Windows Phone market, with 95 percent share. HTC is the only other company that even truly registers, at 3.3 percent. Huawei clocked in at 0.7 percent but that number will disappear now that the company has decided to stop developing phones for the OS.
