I found this interesting comparison of Q2/2011 to Q2/2012. Windows Phone almost tripled their market share – and this even though Microsoft announced that current handsets will not be updated to the upcoming Windows 8 Phone system.

Of those 5,1 million phones sold in Q2/2012, 80% were Nokia making them the clear leader for Windows Phone handsets.
