Nokia's Lumia 520 takes Finland by storm; top seller on multiple networks

The Lumia 520, Nokia's cheapest Windows Phone 8 smartphone available, has taken Finland by storm. According to a report over on Teknikka & Talous, a "techno-economic journal that deals with technology and innovation" and one of the largest in Finland,  the affordable mobile device is the top seller on Elisa, DNA and Sonera for the month of July. The report states that while the Lumia 520 only launched in the country last month, it's already the best seller across all three mobile operators.

Considering Samsung has taken the number one spot from Nokia in Finland, this is good news for the manufacturer.

As one would expect, there are numerous Lumia Windows Phones in all three lists, but it's interesting to see how quickly the more affordable option took the number one spot. That said, we've previously looked at reports detailing the Lumia 520 surge in multiple markets, particularly in locations where cheaper, low-end handsets are the rage. Check out our in-depth review of the product, if you haven't already done so.

Have you purchased a Lumia 520 - what do you make of the more affordable experience?
