It’s safe to say that Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is best represented by none other than Nokia, who according to the latest figures, has managed to dominate about 90% of the Windows Phone market worldwide, and according to the figures, it looks like this is largely thanks to the Nokia Lumia 520, a seemingly low-mid ranged device that surprisingly turned out to be a pretty huge hit. Back in August we had reported that the Lumia 520 accounted for the majority of Nokia Lumia devices out there, but according to the latest figures, it looks like that number might have gone up a bit.
The figures released by AdDuplex shows that the Lumia 520 commands about 26.5% of the market at the moment, but when you combine it with T-Mobile’s Lumia 521, which is essentially a Lumia 520 variant, that number could be around 29.9%, which is like saying that a third of all Windows Phone devices used at the moment are that of the Lumia 520 family! Unsurprising given that last we checked, the Lumia 521 was actually the most used Windows Phone in the US. What do you guys think? Anyone else surprised that Nokia’s higher-end devices aren’t doing as well as their low-end ones?
