Lumia 520 now world’s top Windows Phone as Nokia dominates market


While most people would think that flagship devices are the most popular, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes, it’s the budget devices that top the list, as is the case with Windows Phone. According to Windows Phone advertising company AdDuplex, the Nokia Lumia 520 is the world’s most popular Windows Phone handset.Specifically, the Lumia 520
controls 13.3% of the total Windows Phone market, while Nokia itself owns a whopping 85% of the Windows Phone market, mostly thanks to the Finnish company’s big partnership with Microsoft. However, Windows Phone still has a long way to go before it catches up with iOS or Android.

However, that isn’t stopping Windows Phone sales. While the Lumia 520 hasn’t seen exponential growth, its sales have been doing nothing but rising since the phone’s release back in March. Sales numbers aren’t disclosed, since AdDuplex bases its numbers on app adoption.

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated.
