The handset also goes for various promotions with most recent one being at Fry’s where the handset costs $79.99 as an AT&T GoPhone.
Lately,Paul Thurrott revealed some interesting information from the recent Microsoft Company meeting. He revealed that Nokia Lumia 520 is not just the best-selling smartphone in the Windows Phone category, but the best-selling Windows device in the world, which includes all windows tablets, PCs and phones.
While the number of PCs sold each year is more than 300 million, that’s still less than 2.8 billion tablets and phones which are expected to be sold each year. This might be the reason the company is moving towards the smartphone industry, and is working more on the Windows Phone 8 OS.
