Report: Nokia sold 8 million Lumia Windows Phones in Q3

Nokia Lumia 1520 launch delayed after Microsoft deal

According to the Wall Street Journal, Nokia has sold over 8 million Lumia smartphones from June through September of this year. Nokia had sold 7.4 million units in the second quarter of 2013. Nokia is dominating the Windows Phone space, with AdDuplex reporting that the company now holds almost 90% of the Windows Phone market.

Nokia is expected to announce the Lumia 1320 smartphone, the Lumia 2520 tablet and the Lumia 1520 phablet tomorrow at its Nokia World event, where a few Asha feature phones are said to be released as well.

Times are certainly changing for Nokia, with Microsoft set to take control of their hardware manufacturing, which could potentially increase the quality of the Windows Phone ecosystem.

There’s no doubt that Nokia’s Lumia Windows Phone handsets are quality devices, but the Windows Phone platform still is lacking in popularity, due mostly in part to the lack of popular iOS and Android apps on the platform.
