Lebanon here, androids and apples are flying everywhere.. never spotted a WP device! !
Well, I have seen lots of WP8 phones around on my travels through the ME-region. And the facts don't lie...just be honest and let's not pretend that iPhones rule the world. They just have great marketing :P .
Any data on the models sold?
haahahahaha are you kidding me ?
i live in Kuwait and I can say that every person in Kuwait have an iPhone , even 12 years old kids
D_G, 15 Sep 2013im yet to see one single lumia phone in the hands of a person (mind you there are plenty on th... moreSame in cyprus! People are crazy with mobile phones here!everybody has one, all ages! No one buys WP! Lots of androids and iphones but no windows phones! Anyway great news for nokia!
veegee, 15 Sep 2013May be you have gone only to iPhone shop.im yet to see one single lumia phone in the hands of a person (mind you there are plenty on the shleves) in Dubai..
UAE is the top market for mobile phones in the world per capita..so if you dont see lumia's here, its not great news for Nokia...
here its Android, different brands and not only samsung(i made 6 family members including myself buy the HTC one and my oldest brother now is waiting for HTC one Max), BBs ( i know, but fading fast i would say) and ofcourse iphones..
in this mobile crazed city, I'm yet to see a lumia in the hands of a person..
perhaps they are selling in other ME countries but not here..and perhaps there are people with lumias here but not too popular as the tiles are ugly and undesired in general...i hope they were not including nokia N9 in the sales ;)
DrMcStuffins, 15 Sep 2013This is surprising; I live in the UAE and have never seen a Lumia device.May be you have gone only to iPhone shop.
Don't know about does numbers or percentages but as far as nigeria, ghana and neighbouring countries are concerned, blackberry rule, second nokia and third, ipads and iphones. Samsung is trying though. Long live sony.
Egypt is one of the rare countries that belong to 2 continents; Africa and Asia (Sinai).
Anyway Glad to see some news about Middle East Markets.
Cheers to all GSMArena staff and readers from
