Nokia's affordable Lumia 520 range storms the Amazon Best Sellers chart

Nokia launched its most affordable Windows Phone this year, the Lumia 520. T-Mobile, being a US mobile operator, had to have its own version of this handset for its customer base, so you then had the Lumia 521 released. Both of these Windows Phones are currently topping the charts over on Amazon US, when looking at best selling no-contract mobile devices.

Grabbing both first and third positions in the list is a solid result, especially when it's a basic Samsung model that separates the two siblings in position two. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is way down in 14th position with numerous other handsets filling the gaps. While no other Windows Phone made it into the list, the Lumia 928 and Lumia 1020 are battling it out against high-end Android hardware in the contracted mobile phone chart.

This isn't the first time we've seen the Lumia 520 top the charts and become rather popular with consumers. As well as Amazon US, three mobile operators in Finland revealed that the affordable Windows Phone brushed all other mobile devices aside to take the top spots.
