Nokia (NOK) now has a 59% share of the global Windows Phone (MSFT) user base, per app analytics firm Localytics. This compares with 21% for HTC, and 13% for Android giant Samsung. However, IDC recently estimated WP only had a 3.5% share of global smartphone sales in Q2. comScore just pegged WP's share of the Japanese smartphone base at 3%, compared with 64% for Android (GOOG) and (impressively, given top carrier DCM still doesn't sell it) 32% for the iPhone (AAPL).
