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.
