AdDuplex Stats: Nokia Now Owns 92.1% of Windows Phone Market Share
AdDuplex have released their numbers for December, based on 2,499 Windows Phone devices running apps with AdDuplex SDK v.2, and they show that Nokia’s dominance of device sales has continued to grow, now standing at 92.1%. HTC are a distant second with 5.2%.
In the chart for best selling devices (both Windows Phone 7 & 8) the Nokia Lumia 520 also strengthened it’s grip on the top spot, with 30.8%, the Lumia 521, which is only available in the US on T-Mobile is the 10th best selling Windows Phone device of all time, with 3.3% share. The Lumia 920 is the second best selling with 8.4%.
An excerpt from AdDuplex’s blog post reads as follows:
Lumia 520 is the indisputable leader of the Windows Phone world and every month makes its position stronger and stronger. This month it crossed the 30% mark and combined with 521 now owns more than one third of the total Windows Phone market. The only other notable change this month is Lumia 625 going from no.10 to no.8 (2.9% to 4.5%).
While low end is growing rapidly and is mostly responsible for all the global market share gains, the new flagships (Lumia 1020 and 1520) still fail to show up in the top 10. And even if we take the Windows Phone 8 devices only, the expensive newbies are nowhere to be seen in the top 10 chart.
AdDuplex breaks down their numbers in individual markets and even carriers, well worth reading the whole post.
