The August 2013 results for Kantar Worldpanel shows that Windows Phone, thanks to Nokia Lumia, exceeds 9% in the big EU5.

Almost there for double digits?

We last looked at their July results here.

Blackberry continues to shrink from 2.4% now to 1.8%.

iOS also shrunk from 17.9 to 16.1%.

In the UK, WP is now 12%, up from 9.2% in July.

Here’s WPC’s summary:

  • Germany: 8.8% (+5.0% YoY)
  • GB: 12.0% (+7.5% YoY)
  • France: 10.8% (+5.2% YoY)
  • Italy: 9.5% (-0.8% YoY)
  • Spain: 2.2% (+0.1% YoY)
  • USA: 3.0% (+0.4% YoY)
  • China: 2.1% (-2.6% YoY)
  • Australia: 6.5% (+2.8% YoY)

New Android handsets and iPhone 5S/5C might shift things again for September/October. Nokia’s really the only one pushing WP.
