43% of U.S. Windows Phone users are using Windows Phone 8
A tweet from mobile ad network Adduplex reveals that their data shows that 43% of U.S. Windows Phone users are usng Windows Phone 8. Considering that Windows Phone 8 handsets have only been available for a few months, it suggests that either 43% of Windows Phone 7.x users have upgraded their phone (which would be unrealistic because most are still locked into a two-year contract), or the size of the Windows Phone user population in the states has doubled over the last few months.

The mobile ad network is expected to reveal its full report on Windows Phone 8 next week, at which time we should have a better idea of what is driving these numbers. Meanwhile, reports that the HTC Windows Phone 8X has been flying off the shelf and that demand for the Nokia Lumia 920 is outpacing supply, suggest that 2013 could be the year that Windows Phone 8 starts to gain marketshare in the U.S. at the expense of iOS, Android, or both.
