Nokia Lumia 520 Pulls Windows Phone 8 Sales Back On Track!

May 03, 13 Nokia Lumia 520 Pulls Windows Phone 8 Sales Back On Track!

The first wave of handsets running on Windows 8 was rolled out by the end of 2012 on high-end expensive Nokia and HTC devices. With the launch Microsoft was aiming at creating ripples and setting superior claims over the prevailing mobile platforms like Android and iOS.

Smartphone running on other leading mobile OS were either confusing with the limitless customisation options or boring users with the never-ending rows and columns. So, Microsoft engineered its new Windows 8 with colorful live tiles, scrollable home screen and loads of user-friendly features.

The Windows 8 revamped platform offers touchscreen experience on all devices, including the PCs too. The question of hesitation and learning curve is completely ruled out on the new interface, whether a user had to go from PC to phone or vice versa.

The code in general for the development was to deliver the end user with a unified experience. Although, the software sale on PCs and other devices are sky rocketing to everyone’s dismay – nothing really kicked off in the handsets segment – not until Nokia Lumia 520 hit the shelves.

The relatively low priced new smartphone (Lumia 520) runs up-to-date software and is sending the right message across the globe which Microsoft had already wanted to convey.

In the present day, it is Microsoft and Blackberry that is battling it out for the number three position and for this, sales figures of the devices matter.

From the beginning, Nokia Lumia’s fortune has gone up and down, but it is the Lumia 520 that is now turning the tables. The low-priced model was announced by February 2013 and made it to the market by end of March and beginning of April in different regions.

It is the high-end specifications of the smartphone and wallet-friendly pricing that is proving to be a selling point for Nokia Lumia 520. Apart from this, the handset is also proving worth the buy – according to existing user feedback.
