imageComscore have released their regular monthly market share numbers, which uses data generated from 30,000 US cellphone subscribers.

Their numbers for July, which average the last 3 months, unfortunately does not yet show a rise in the percent of users running a Microsoft Mobile operating system (Windows Mobile + Windows Phone) as we hoped last month, but it continues to show a flattening of the curve, with only minimal losses of 0.1% between June and July 2011. This slight drop is in the context of the market itself growing by 5% in the last month, adding 3.7 million users, of which around 130,00 chose Windows Phones (all else being static).

Given the solid base we now have I believe we can hope for a significant boost with the release of new devices later this year.
