The  Nokia Lumia 520 has been rapidly ascending, and a teaser tweet by AdDuplex chief Alan Mendelevich suggests the handset is still going strong.


In last month’s stats (above) the device had a 4.4% share of the Windows Phone installed base, starting from nothing in April, suggesting to us at the time that the handset has sold around 1 million units.

Now according to Alan’s tweet the Nokia Lumia 520’s share has again nearly doubled, suggesting we are looking at around 8% of the installed base, and possibly another million in sales.

The numbers suggest there is a real thirst for cheap handsets from Nokia, and that accessing this segment of the market could result in a huge boost in Windows Phone market share.

AdDuplex said they will post their full stats later this week, which will contain such info as new unannounced handsets by Nokia, Huawei, HTC and Samsung, and that Windows Phone 8.1 Build 8.10.12106.0 is also out in the wild.
