the information is actually correct, BUT.. for every new contract you could get the nokia 520 free; you can't get a free phone from samsung or apple, that costs extra
so is more nokia's merit that made these deals with the carriers offering this phone at just the right price

those reports dont take into acount people buying unlocked phones from retail stores or importing them . I can tell you for sure that 7 out of 10 smartphone users have an iPhone . WIndows phones sell well from carriers because of an agressive marketing campaign that involves cheap devices with hard to resist plans. But still lots of people prefer prepay because the options on prepay are better than on plan.
AnonD-169727, 17 Mar 2014But, but, WP doesn't have any apps or games. :(You are so wrong its beyond a joke.....get a life and stop being a troll.
After using 2 Nokia Lumia (625 and 925) running WP and 1 galaxy 4 mini, I can say that Lumia is by far much better than Samsung and android.
not many apps on Windows, but most popular are in the store.
yes, Google's store provides tons of apps, but the large majority access everything on the mobile. I'm not ok with that.
X, 17 Mar 2014They forgot to mention the numbers of phones sold. So here they are: 100 WP new phones sold, 9... morehahahaha...stupid joke. Romania have the biggest and fastest 4g network in Europe and the best network coverage for hsdpa ever. Every parking boy or begger have here in Romania a smartphone,indeed iphone. Romanians are obssessed with smartphones,tablets,ultrabooks and spend very much money on this gadgets monthly
Apple isn't particularly popular around here - way too expensive for it's mediocre tech. Only the local hipsters insist in buying stuff people can't really afford, especially considering other much cheaper mobiles can do everything iPhones can.
the reason iphones don't do well in europe is because we are not fools, when we buy something we study the thing, and make a decision based on price/quality/what it has to offer/ what else you could get with the same money or less, and there are lots of phones you can get which do everything and a lot more than iphones for half the price, even less. that's why europe is not the one who made the economic crisis because we use our brains and think before we buy something and this is the reason usa made the crisis hence why apple is doing so well there, people buy without thinking or caring.
Thats oficially, in real life we have a huge number of iphones , but we buy them from the internet or from other countries because here an iphone is 600€ WITH 2YEAR CONTRACT!!!
