Brisk Sales For The Nokia Lumia 520

The Windows Mobile operating system is slowly growing in popularity and currently Nokia are the manufacturers who produce the biggest range of devices that support this platform.  They currently offer a range that includes outstanding model such as the Lumia 920 and the brand new Nokia Lumia 925 but it looks as though the entry level device, the Nokia Lumia 520, is the handset destined to become the fastest selling Windows phone of all time.

Windows mobiles do not sell in the numbers that Android and iOS handsets do but Finnish manufacturers Nokia have discovered that rather than premium, high end handsets the model that is striking a chord with the public is a much more modest affair.   The Nokia Lumia 520 looks set to become the fastest selling Windows handset ever released.  Android and iOS may be dominated by high priced premium phones like the Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5 but it looks as though more reasonably priced models appeal when it comes to the Microsoft platform.  The Lumia 520 was originally released back in April and it was revealed on Twitter by  Alan Mendelevich from AdDuplex that in about one month following its release the 520 had claimed 4.4 per cent of the Windows market having sold an impressive 1 million units.

  A short while later Mendelevich took to social networking site Twitter once more to reveal figure relating to Nokia Lumia 520 sales from May to June.  He stated that the handset now commanded an 8-9 per cent share of total Windows sales which would suggest that the number of handsets sold had quickly reached 2 million.   These type of numbers may pale in comparison to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 which sold 10 million in just one month but Android is a much more popular platform and 2 million sales for any Windows phone is a great achievement.   What these figures also reveal is that Windows consumers are keen on more budget priced phones offering super value for money rather than devices that may boast superior specification but also attract a much higher price.  Visit our site for fantastic deals

The Nokia Lumia 520 has been an incredibly popular model since its launch back in April and is on course to be the most popular Windows powered model ever released by the Finnish manufacturers.
