Microsoft reveals that the world's best-selling Windows-based product right now isn't a PC or a tablet, but a Windows Phone: the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520, available from just $79 off-contract.

We’re big fans of Nokia’s ultra-affordable Lumia 520 here at Neowin. For the price – as low as $79 off-contract in the U.S. and £99 in the U.K. – very few other devices come close to what it offers.

Evidently, we’re not the only ones to have been won over by the cheap and cheerful Windows Phone. We reported recently that the 520 now represents over 20 percent of all Windows Phones in use around the world, and Microsoft has since shared another little detail that underlines just how popular the device has become.

Softpedia reports that, at Microsoft’s company meeting earlier this week, they were told that the Lumia 520 isn’t just the most popular Windows Phone in the world; it’s actually the best selling of all Windows products currently available, with sales exceeding those of all Windows PCs and tablets, including Microsoft’s own Surface range.

Microsoft will surely be encouraged by the 520's success, as it moves towards absorbing Nokia's device business, which it purchased earlier this month in a deal worth $7.2 billion.

The Lumia 520 sells for ~$150 (₹ 9000) unlocked here in India. :)

I hate to sound like the resident Android troll that every online community absolutely must have, but just think how many more that thing would have sold had it been running on that OS from Mountain View rather than from Redmond :(

Stellar hardware specs, quality materials inside out, great fit and finish, reliable to a fault and great after sales service as usual from Nokia. No wonder everybody and their Aunties want one! My cousin's got one simply because she liked the color choices it comes with :D

God damn you Elop. May they have a very special place for you and your cronies in hell for what you did with the (late) great Finnish icon :mad2:

The biggest problem with mobile OS is it must be optimized for the hardware it runs on, currently Apple has achieved this sort of perfection. Google & Microsoft are on the way to achieve this after Google bought Motorola and Microsoft signed deal with Nokia.

BTW Nokia 520 available in India under 8k
