The share of devices running 7.1 remains stable at approximately one in twelve. Devices running Windows 10 have seen a large jump this month (up from just 0.1%) presumably in response to people trying out the second preview release of Windows 10 for phones that became available to Windows Insiders. www.adduplex.com 8 Windows Phone 8.1 72.5% Windows Phone 8.0 18.3% Windows Phone 7.1 8.5% Windows 10 0.7%

- Windows Phone Devices – Argentina April 17th, AdDuplex We last looked in depth at Argentina in July 2014. Back then the list was completely dominated by the 520, 710, 620 and 720. All of them are still amongst the top seven most popular devices but the 630 and 735 together have 30% of the market.

- Windows Phone Devices – EU5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain) April 17th, AdDuplex While we normally include at least one of the EFIGS countries in our monthly breakdowns, we last looked at them all together in September last year. In that time, the 520 has dropped from a 31.8% share while the 630 and 635 have, together, gained 10.9%.

- Windows Phone Devices – Indonesia April 17th, AdDuplex Since November, when we last profiled Indonesia, the 520 has lost 9% of it’s market share and the 535 has come from nowhere to now be on more than one in every five devices. When compared with other markets and the world as a whole it’s surprising to see the 630 only gain 0.2% of market share in five months but the popularity of the 535 explains this. www.adduplex.com 14 NOKIA Lumia 520 30.2% MICROSOFT Lumia 535 21.6% NOKIA Lumia 625 9.0% NOKIA Lumia 620 6.9% NOKIA Lumia 720 4.1% NOKIA Lumia 920 2.9% NOKIA Lumia 710 2.7% NOKIA Lumia 730 2.4% NOKIA Lumia 610 2.3% NOKIA Lumia 630 2.2% Other 15.7%

- Unreleased phones We’ve all felt a drought in terms of new flagships from Microsoft and heard a promise that there will be new high-end phones this year. It’s hard to expect such a phone released at Build, but we can at least hope to hear an announcement. Having said that, we are happy to report that we can confirm that such a phone exists. We have seen something called RM-1085 with a 5.7”, 1080p screen, running Windows 10 exclusively. Not sure if 1080p screen is a sign of high-end or rather a mid-range device in 2015, but at least it’s higher res than anything released after Lumia 930 hit the market at last Build. Judging by the fact that we only see it running Windows 10, it is safe to assume that it won’t be released until Windows 10 Mobile is finished. Other than that, we don’t have any other flagship news at this point. www.adduplex.com 16 April 17th, AdDuplex
