It's not that big of a shock to learn that Nokia continues to be the number one vendor of smartphones that use Microsoft's Windows Phone OS. The app advertising service AdDuplex has now posted up its survey numbers for August, and, as it showed in July, Nokia smartphones take up the vast majority of Windows Phone devices being used worldwide.
The August numbers show that the low cost Nokia Lumia 520 is the number one Windows Phone device on the AdDuplex network with 18 percent, followed by the Lumia 920 with 11 percent, the Lumia 620 with nine percent and the Lumia 710 with eight percent. The HTC 8X is the only non-Nokia Windows Phone device in the worldwide top 10, bringing up the rear in the number 10 slot at just four percent.
In the US, AdDuplex says their stats show the Lumia 822 is the number one Windows Phone at 18 percent, followed by the Lumia 920 at 16 percent, and the HTC 8X at 13 percent. The Nokia Lumia 1020 has yet to appear on the top 10 charts but AdDuplex says that, according to their data, app downloads to the phone with the 41 megapixel camera from their network are registering as slightly above those of the Nokia Lumia 928 in the same time period.
