ncom-lumia-900-cyan-front-267x500-pngKantar Worldpanel (a market research firm) has put out mobile operating system sales as a percentage of the whole for the 12 weeks ending March 15, 2012. 

In the US, we see Android keeping its top position, but barely, falling from 54.2 to 47.6.  iOS jumped from 30.1. to 42.9.  Win7 almost doubled its share from 1.9 to 3.6.   Rim crashed hard, going from 9.3 to 3.2!  Ouch.  Rounding out the bottom were Symbian (no change at .5), WinMo (really?  1.5 to .1), “Other” (2.4 to 2.1) and Bada sits on the floor at 0.

What we need to remember, though, is that every country is different.  Interestingly, with the exception of Spain (lower) and Germany (higher) on this list (Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, US, Australia), Windows Phone 7 is doing pretty solidly around 3.x.  Symbian is in free-fall (45.0 to 8.8 in Spain), RIM fell everywhere but Spain, iOS made either large gains or small losses, Android made significant gains everywhere except the US, and the French seem to be the only ones buying on Bada.
