AdDuplex

Every month we look forward to the latest data from AdDuplex. As you probably know, AdDuplex is the cross-promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows 8. It allows developers to promote their apps for free among other developers. Alan Mendevelevich (@ailon) is the man behind AdDuplex and gathers data every month into very informative reports. These reports help give us a look at the Windows Phone ecosystem. Let’s check out the data from March to see which Windows Phone reigns supreme.

The Lumia 520 (and T-Mobile’s lesser known variant, the Lumia 521, in the US), was the sleeper hit of 2013 for Windows Phone 8. Announced nearly one year ago at Mobile World Congress, it seems apropos to see what it’s accomplished in that 12 months.

As it turns out, we don’t think anyone predicted just how strong the Lumia 520 would have become. Due to its low cost, where it’s often found well below $90 off-contract, great build quality and all around solid user experience, the Lumia 520 has become representative of the Windows Phone ecosystem.

New AdDuplex data shows the Lumia 625 following the Lumia 520's growth with both Windows Phones taking Europe. Windows Phone is also shown to have had a rather successful Q4 2013.

AdDuplex, one of the largest advertising providers for both Windows and Windows Phone, has released data for the month of January. As is the case with each report we cover, the company has analysed usage from supported apps running the SDK to see how Windows Phone has altered, compared to previous months.

There were reports that Nokia failed to sell as many Lumia Windows Phones in Q4 2013 as the company did in Q3, but the ad provider recently released data to show that Windows Phone as a platform performed well through the fourth quarter.

Head past the break to see how the platform looks in the first month of 2014, including some new, unannounced hardware.

Nokia released the company's Q4 2013 financial report earlier this week, revealing some rather disappointing data. Sales of Lumia Windows Phones were estimated to be lower in Q4 2013, compared to Q3. While Nokia failed to provide hard numbers in the report itself, the company did go on record to confirm the number of sales at 8.2 million units (compared to 8.8 in Q3). Then again, even the juggernaut Samsung Mobile had a rough time this quarter, meaning this isn't a Nokia anomaly.

Today, AdDuplex, one of the largest ad service providers for Windows Phone apps, has published a blog post attempting to analyse how the platform performed through the holiday season, compared to previous quarters.

AdDuplex has released data showing the Lumia 520 becoming ever more popular within the Windows Phone ecosystem, low-end hardware progressing strongly in the US and a stubborn Windows Phone 7.

Windows Phone is an interesting platform to analyse when you're looking at hardware. Cross-platform advertising network, AdDuplex has published a report for the month of December to provide us with a small insight as to how Windows Phone is looking at the end of 2013. The year has been an eventful one to say the least, so head on past the break for all the details.

New data shows entry level Windows Phones doing very well, while the Lumia 1020 remains niche; Nokia near 90% of the Windows Phone market

AdDuplex have released Windows Phone ecosystem data for the month of September. The company powers the ads that are found in Windows Phone apps worldwide and have become a solid metric for platform statistics.

This month's data continues a few trends, including steady growth of Nokia's dominance and the rise of low-cost Lumias. However, the high-end market, including the Lumia 1020, have so far not sold nearly as much. Expectation due to niche device or market failure?

When Microsoft and its partners don’t share actual numbers with us we have to go elsewhere to get our data fix. AdDuplex is one of those places where we can get an overall look at the current Windows Phone landscape in terms of which devices are popular (hint: it’s the Lumia 520). What is AdDuplex? It’s a cross-promotion network where developers can advertise their apps within each other’s apps. It also happens to have a Windows 8 network and what’s what we’re going to look at today. Which device is king of the hill when it comes to Windows 8?

If there is one controversial area in regards to the stellar Nokia Lumia 1020, it would be its price. In the face of deals elsewhere like on Amazon.com, the $299 contract price is traditionally higher than most flagship devices in 2013. At least that’s the perception, even if erroneous. It’s a bit dishonest when tech sites focus on that subject since the AT&T 32GB iPhone 5 sells for the same $299 (and the 32GB Galaxy S4 runs for $249).

Last we checked, neither come with a groundbreaking 41MP camera.

Some could argue that the Lumia 1020 has no right to command the same price as the iPhone 5, but that seems a little pretentious for our tastes. Still, there’s a feeling in the air that the Lumia 1020 is not selling well or making much of an impact.
