The most exciting part of the news is that over 35 percent of market share, Nokia capture form low end Lumia 520.
Nokia’s share of Windows Phone 8 devices has been growing steadily over the last few months, moving from about 75 percent at the start of the year, to a new high of 90 percent this month. This means only 1 out of every 10 Windows Phone 8 devices is not a Nokia Lumia device.
The results are based on data collected from 2,087 Windows Phone apps running AdDuplex SDK version 2, Nokia’s rise in the Windows Phone world isn’t much of a surprise.
