It would be interesting to understand how the variants are accounted for in this study...are they lumped under other or included within the "global" version. For instance, does the Lumia 520 reflect volume from 520+505+510? What about carrier specific versions (710 T-Mobile or 900 AT+T). Bottom line, what portion of the "OTHER" does each Lumia represent (i.e.: 625, 1020, 925, 928, 505, 822, 510, 810, 800c, 900AT&T, 710 T-mobile)?

Is this supposed to be surprising? Nokia is pretty much the only company pushing Windows Phone. Especially now that Microsoft bought them expect the trend to continue.

Before stupid people reply to me, I know Samsung, HTC, and even others have made Windows Phone devices but Nokia is the only one REALLY putting effort/money/advertising into the OS

This sentence has so many untrue statements, that there is no sense to argue.

Of course it is ..beacuse it's NOKIA. Even if it was in the Android world, Nokia would rule..but unfortunately that was not meant to be...anyway, Nokia has been part of our (at least mine) world for many years, and it will alwayse be OUR CHAMPION!

90% of what???

even if its 99%, the question is how much is the total WP sales?

because 90% of say, 5 million, is only 4.5M, which is just a fraction of Android phone or iphones.

But if its Nokia Android phones, maybe its neck to neck between nokia & all other major android phonemakers combined..

Oh BTW, i am a nokia fan, but not WP fan!

I tried a couple of nokia WP in a mall, & i am not impressed with the OS specially with the animations. For just 15mins of trying, I felt dizzy. What more if I use it daily, maybe i would suffer from headache.

And ppl complain about Google having ownership in Motorola and showing favoritism.

I really think all other WP manufactures are just making devices because of licensing issues with Android. The article does say WP8 tho....wonder how many are still using WP7...

Not surprising, that percentage might even increase. I know myself I wouldn't buy a windows phone unless it's Nokia.
