The Nokia Lumia opportunity
The development opportunity for Nokia Lumia products powered by Windows Phone is growing fast across the globe. Check out some figures that show what this opportunity could mean for you:
- Windows Phone has been recognised as the fastest-growing smartphone operating system, with 91 per cent year-over-year growth in 2013 (source: IDC, February 2014).
- Windows Phone app downloads have increased more than 266 per cent and revenues 175 per cent in the past year.
- The Windows Phone Store, available in 50 languages and more than 190 markets, offers increased revenues via operator billing — up to six times more than revenues via credit card.
And don’t miss the cross-screen opportunity with Windows on tablets and even on desktops. You can develop for all of these from a single environment, leveraging the same technologies and even APIs and same projects across – Windows and Windows Phone 8.1 make this a reality for the first time.
