Nokia Lumia 920 now has dominant global share of Windows Phone

Nokia Lumia 920 now has dominant global share of Windows Phone
A month ago, we shared a report released by AdDuplex that revealed a rather surprising statistic, Verizon’s Nokia Lumia 822 held a stronger position than the flagship Lumia 920 on AT&T. Both models are exclusive to their respective carriers.

The Lumia 920 was actually fourth in the worldwide rankings in AdDuplex’s report just a month ago, but oh what a month it has been, because now based on the most recent statistics, the Lumia 920 has crept to the top spot.

The data is drawn from Windows Phone apps that use the AdDuplex SDK, a sampling that covered nearly 500 applications in action. This time we are provided with a lot of data not just of the “world” of Windows Phone, but the US, several countries in Europe, China and Australia.

All-in-all, the Lumia 920 is making a strong showing, but in some countries it is still second fiddle (or lower). In France, the Windows Phone 8S by HTC is tops by a sizable margin over the Lumia 920. Similar circumstances prevail in Italy and Ukraine. In the US, the Lumia 822 still holds the top spot, despite AT&T having a dominant overall position of Windows Phone subscribers.

Another interesting statistic has to do with the penetration of Windows Phone 8 in countries that were also part of the launch of Windows Phone 7. France and the US are leading the pack while Mexico, Spain and Italy do not have much of a showing for Windows Phone 8.

As you would expect, Nokia dominates the overall global market for Windows Phone, a full 80%, and while that is an impressive portion of the pie, we do need to remember that the pie itself is small (albeit growing). In the coming months these statistics will be interesting to see as the new Lumia 520 and 720 make it to market this spring.

Its not surprising really as Nokia is 100% reliant on wp and has been left fairly devastated as a result. Other manufacturers prime concentration is else where on far far more popular,profitable and successful operating systems,although the likes of Htc do like to dabble in the windows pool for a small bit of variety to the os they produce in. That saying Nokia has put in a valiant effort but other manufacturers have kept their a game for a market which is more successful

Everyone agrees! Even in Engadget GsmArena Wpcentral Verge are saying this, along with 60% of them being dislikers! A major Flop even I sold my L920 using it after 2 weeks. They have spent 100millions on advertising, in return there sales still fluctuates at 3.8%! Even BB10 and ios is much better!

Lmfao yea relying on Nokia, even if they merge with Android, Nokia is more know to connect people. They will be using last years specs on there phones, even Sony Lg Htc will use highend Cpu Gpu, Nokia even said in there entire portfolio they disagree on using hi specs on there devices. Elop dosent have his own headquarters and his salary has been reduced to 1.5 million let alone beat Sony Htc and you've got the king Samsung. What a joke

Nokia please forget ego issues and bring out the 920/820/720/620/520 with Android Jellybean. You will wipe out the competition. I've used Nokias most of my life but now have to use a Samsung (S3) only becos of the OS. Please Nokia ...why cant u have both Android and WP8 phones?

I see this being problematic in the future just like Samsung's dominance on the Android platform. Someone needs to rival Nokia here.

Only Nokia makes decent Windows Phones, and I love the polycarbonate feel on the Lumia 920. :)
