Latest Windows Phone stats teased by AdDuplex's Mendelevich
Tweets sent from Alan Mendelevich tease a number of stats that have been culled from AdDuplex, which is where Mendelevich hangs his hat during the work week. AdDuplex is a mobile ad network for Windows Phone which gives Mendelevich the numbers to point out some interesting things. While the tweet didn't specifically mention the model, Mendelevich hints that a new phone is now the most popular Windows Phone model in the U.S. We are certain that this is the Nokia Lumia 521. That might not come as much of a surprise to many considering how fast the device has sold out at Walmart, T-Mobile, and each time it was presented on HSN. Recently, a coupon code took the price of the phone at HSN down to a ridiculous $80, lock, stock and barrel.

Mendelevich also teased the news that a new carrier has become the most popular seller of Windows Phone 8 handsets in the U.S. Considering that AT&T has exclusives in the states for the Nokia Lumia 520 (which is the twin of the Nokia Lumia 521), the Nokia Lumia 925 and the Nokia Lumia 1020, that title probably belongs to the nation's second largest carrier.

According to tweets sent out by Mendelevich, the average Windows Phone app was used by twice as many people last month than a year ago, which should give developers the incentive to write more apps for the platform (here that, Instagram?). Lastly, Windows Phone 8 handsets now have 70% of the Windows Phone market.
