Nokia bags 45% of Windows Phone Mango market

January 24th, 2012

Nokia Lumia 710Nokia-branded smartphones account for 45 percent of the Windows Phone market, new data has revealed,

The data, compiled by OccasionalGamer, reveals that the Finnish phone-maker is slowly beginning to dominate the Windows Phone market, bagging almost a 50 percent share. What’s more impressive is that Nokia has just two Mango-powered phones available at present: the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800.

HTC also accounts for a huge share of the Windows Phone market, 40 percent to be exact. The stats reveal that the mid-range Radar is the best-selling of the firm’s WP7 handset, outselling its larger-screened HTC Titan brother.

With Nokia and HTC accounting for a whopping 85 percent of the Windows Phone market, all other manufacturers onboard with Microsoft’s OS make up just 15 percent of the overall market. Samsung, who recently released the cheap-and-cheerful Omnia 7, grabs the majority of that with a 12 percent share, while the latest few percent are grabbed by the Fijutsu IS12T.

Of course, this could all change when ZTE, Acer and LG also join the second-gen Windows Phone market, but all look unlikely to knock the Finns from the top-spot.
