Windows 10 comes with many great improvements, and this seems to be the case with Windows 10 Mobile, as well. The release of the smartphone OS is a few weeks away, but it seems that it is already witnessing an increase in market share.

Recent data coming from ad platform AdDuplex shows that from all Windows version for mobile devices, Windows 10 Mobile is the single one that has witnessed growth. It now has a market share of 3.3%, up by 0.7% over the last month.

The change is obviously due to the fact that Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Mobile preview. Windows Phone 8.1 still has a market share of 78.1%, Windows Phone 8 is at 11.8% and the oldie Windows Phone 7.x has 6.8%.

Windows 10 Mobile still has a long way to go

According to the recent data, the Nokia Lumia 520 remains the most popular Windows handset worldwide (17.2%), followed by the Lumia 630 (9.4%) and Microsoft’s Lumia 535 (9.0%). Once again, we can clearly see that Microsoft needs badly other phonemakers to embrace Windows 10 Mobile.

Another recent report coming from the IDC is predicting that Microsoft’s Windows Phone will grow from its 2.6% market share in 2015 to 3.6% in 2019. While IDC doesn’t make it clear if this includes Windows 10 Mobile, as well, I think that seems to be the case.

Of course, an increase by just 1 percent in such a long while is definitely not an achievement, but the IDC seem pretty confident that the market share of mobile operating systems won’t change too much.

For Windows 10 Mobile to really become successful, it needs the phone making companies’ support, and not smaller players, such as Archos and others, but support from Samsung, LG, Lenovo, Huawei and maybe Xiaomi and others. Once that will happen, then we can see real hope for Windows 10 Mobile.
