Nokia Lumia 520 doubles its global market share to nearly 9% of Windows Phone market

Nokia Lumia 520 doubles its global market share to nearly 9% of Windows Phone market
According to mobile ad network Adduplex, last month the low-end Nokia Lumia 520 held 4.4% of the global Windows Phone market. We've seen the Nokia Lumia 521 variant of this model sell out in the states through HSN, Walmart and through T-Mobile's monthly pre-paid service. Obviously Nokia has struck a chord with the public, offering a well-received combination of specs and features for the price.

Earlier on Saturday, Adduplex's Alan Mendelevich sent out a tweet to say that the Nokia Lumia 520 has doubled its global market share in the last month. At 8.8%, the phone would have an impressive grip on the Windows Phone market. Mendelevich also passed along some other information. He says that Adduplex has seen new Windows Phone 8 models made by HTC, Nokia, Huawei and Samsung. In addition, for the first time the number of Windows Phone 8 models in use surpass the number of Windows Phone 7 models still active. And not surprisingly, Lumia models monopolize the list of top selling Windows Phone models.

Mendelevich also hints that Verizon has taken over the top spot in Windows Phone 8 sales in the U.S., no doubt thanks to the Nokia Lumia 928.
