Nokia now sells 80.2% of all Windows Phone devices
In May 2013, Nokia grew its market share holding 80.2% of all Windows Phone sales. Windows Phone 8 also gained in popularity, but the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system is still less popular than earlier 7.x versions, according to Windows Phone ad network AdDuplex.

Interestingly, while Nokia was the most popular phone maker in the Windows Phone market, it was not as popular in the United States as elsewhere. In the U.S. Nokia held a less than average 65.9% market share and HTC was particularly strong with 25.8% of sales.

Except for that, though, Nokia has a rock solid grip on the Windows Phone platform across the globe. In the United States, the Nokia Lumia 822 is most popular of all its phones followed by the Nokia Lumia 920. And of all carriers, AT&T sells the most Nokia Windows Phones.

In the United Kingdom, HTC’s 8S is actually the most widespread device but the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 follow it closely.

Over the past couple of months there has been little change in the distribution of sales among Windows Phone manufacturers but as little as there is it is in favor of Nokia as HTC’s and Samsung’s share is narrowing down.

Nah, the 8X is somewhat popular; good design, thinner and lighter than the 920, and it was/is on more carriers. Exclusivity doesn't help sales, necessarily

Keep it on Nokia! We'll hope Microsoft starts to spend more time with WP!

Well if those charts say anything is that WP isn't profitable for anyone but Nokia, and they get a billion a year to make them.

It doesn't say it's not profitable at all, all it says is that it's not as profitable as them on android.. But of course you already knew that right?

You want 4.5% to 0.5% of all WP sales which could mean 350k to 70k phone sales? That's pathetic.

Lol did you even read your comment and then his? You said it's not profitable but that isn't true. With your logic all phone MFG should have stayed with window Mobil since they had all the market share then correct?

Motorola did go with WM and lost millions on it, then kicked MS to the curb and went Android. Then the lawsuits started when they also gave them the finger on their patents.

At WM's peak they had 25% market share, but that only happened when Palm did the stupidest maneuver in their life and went WM.

You really think those other OEMs not getting a billion dollars a year from MS to use WP are getting any ROI? Here'a hint: The only two companies making a profit are Apple and Samsung, and Samsung is at 4.5% market share of all WPs.

I think what he's saying is that the silly things that you hold to be the reason that android is in the lead don't always stay that way.

well you should be stating them considering your so sure android will always be top

you state that android has more features etc yet never say them. what features does android have that no other os has that are essential and used everyday?

Android can't (and won't) be leading forever. WP is the clear winner in the long run because iOS would most likely be irrelevant. Ever heard of the Industry Lifecycle Model? There's your answer...

Actually my problem with MySpace was about the certain things that where annoying, it lacked many stuff the users needed and had many things that annoyed the crap out of a lot of people, like music, back there when the internet was slow and you opened multiple windows having all the MySpace profiles playing all the dam music at the same time was annoying as **** plus MySpace never actually focused too much on actual set improved

6.Better Multitasking
7.Can replace battery
8.Wide range of devices
9.Set apps for default

1.usb mass storage- was on Symbian way before android and seeing as i said what does android offer that no other os offers thats essential thats not an answer

2.widgets- ohh come on android didnt invent the widget, besides widgets will one day be outdated just like how the grid on iOS is looking tired

3. open source- how is this essential? there are pro's and con's to this but the general market couldnt care as long as it does whats needed

4. sd card- your really grasping at straws now, my Symbian phone has micro sd slot, the samsung ativ wp8 phone does. this isnt exclusive to android

5. notification centre shortcuts- all os's have alternatives plus they have there own version of ways to do the same.....you still havent said anything that android has thats essential that others dont

6. multi-tasking- ohh yeah becuase as we know android invented multi tasking lol symbian had it before that plus how many apps do people leave open nowadays? lets be honest multitasking hardly gets utilized. iOS has its version of it etc again nothing essential in your comment

7. thats the choice of the device manufacture not a feature of android

8. again thats not an essential feature of android, your been an idiot now

9. wow thats so needed we couldnt live without that lmao

10. this is needed as your never happy with android out the box so you have to jump through hoops. the general market wont root anyway your speaking about a small segment

please go on, i actually want to see how desperate you can go

you couldnt think of anything could you, face facts all os's have the essentials down and android wont be on top forever

So you miss points 7-10
1.who the hell uses symbian now except for you....
2.no other is has them which is what you asked.....
3.that is what the whole os is based on....how can you say its not used
4.lol the ativ s is that it?
5.lol your argument makes no sense....
6.I use multitasking all the time and everyone else does look around you before you make some rubbish up
7. I've done 7 if you actually look...
Dude please be quiet as your just as much of a fanboy as thre rest of us.....
