AnonD-21264, 24 Nov 2011I'm using a samsung the quality they provide is quite inferior than my old N82 and other Nokia... moreWhat are you waiting for? Get the Lumia 800 for a taste of heaven. Or if you're hurting on cash, there's always the 710.
[deleted post]With all due respect, I doubt getting a free Xbox 360 is the main push for Lumia's popularity. There's no denying it's design is lusted and the word unibody attracts consumers. What about advertisments? Doesn't that factor in to the popularity on Lumia? And what about saturation. For the last 2 years it's been all about Android and iPhone, I'm pretty sure the average Joe doesn't want to be average anymore, and the Lumia is anything but average.
those analysts are presumably paid by Google/Apple for black marketing. Continuosly spreading rumors about Nokia !
Or do you have any other logical explanation that Nokia is that far under-represented in the US market despite highly appreciated in the rest of the world?
Thats simply (WTO banned) protectionism what those US phone providers do.
Well it is pretty obvious from the amount of comments to this and the that last "analyst" post that Lumia 800 is certainly drawing amazing amount of attention :)
This analyst is an idiot. He obviously predicted numbers that were too high. He was trying to look all cool and smart if nokia hit those numbers and say he was the only one who got it write. But he got it wrong and has achieved the opposite. Nokia phones are selling and are STILL going to sell, and when they release 4G LTE, dual core, HD-screened phones next year with the next windows phone operating system update, fustrated android users (because of lack of regular updates and security patches) will migrate. Sure ,RIGHT NOW, I wouldn't buy a windows/nokia phone because, thanks to sites like gsmarena I'm a hardware nut. But I'm a patient man I'll wait for next year for the kick-ass windows phones, compare it to the galaxy 3 (hopefully coming in March-ish) and make my decision. I don't believe even those analysts that predict that windows will overtake android in the near future, but a huge chunk of android users, and even iphone users, will look for another option when fustration mounts over security issues and a longing for quality MS office competibility. The sky is the limit for windows and nokia, and don't be impressed by these numbers this is only the beginning (because if u are to look at all the analysts predictions they all predict growth for nokia and windows, unlike RIM, etc). Stop bad-mouthing windows phone just to prove android or ios is better, the figures that will come quaterly next year will cause ya'll to eat a massive dose of humble pie, THEY WILL IMPRESS.
Nokia rocks...it just ignored android and made it sucessful without android help...It totally rocks
nokianoob, 24 Nov 2011Funny how all the nokia fanboys were saying on the other article that the company who did this... morei guess its a rather "shame on you" thing that should be said. Nokia is reaching top sales. So where have all the Fandroids gone? :)
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2011lol some of u just dont get it;~)))) winphone wont fail because of good marketing, adds bla bl... moreTo an extent I agree and I also condone a 3 way eco system, between WP7.5/8, IOS and Android ICS, but about power issues that's the way WP is going next year by adapting a multi-core OS. Better overall for gaming, multitasking and media related apps.
Number 1 in Germany
Good start in UK (sold out in Orange and top popularity in Vodafone) / second best selling in Netherlands
Number 1 in France (4 weeks already):
It really seems, that Lumia is selling extemely well in the countries where it has been launched. This IS going to be big hit.
Things happen in a week. why not their sales? why hate the company if their product(s) is(are) sold out?
N9 or Lumia800 is on top of my Christmas wishlist.
I bought mine on launch day at Phones4U Manchester and it seemed to be doing really well. I actually overheard one of the sales team saying:
'Those Lumias are absolutely flying off. We should be called Nokia4u'
Really good to see this actually...
This can only benefit us all with a new OS coming into the mix...
And this isn't even Nokia's flagship model (that will presumably be next year now)...
Windows OS is too rigid / boring for me...
But wrapped up in a nice looking handset? I can see why it'd be popular...
Fingers crossed M$ lift their restrictions on specs next year, so that Windows phones can start competing with Android / iOS...
Nokia N800 Look Great , Specs Great... I hope WP7 Is Good As I Never Used It Before.
Believe It Or Not I Wish This Phone Is Running Meego OS As Nokia N9... Most websites Said Nokia N9 Meego Better Than Android , Just Missing A Lot Of Apps... I Don't Know What The Point Of So Many Apps When All You Need Is Few?
I Think Nokia N9 Is My Next Nokia Phone To get After Nokia N8 Which I am Happy To Use So Far & Waiting For Belle, Just Wanna Change My Nokia 8800 To Bigger & Better Phone.
I love Nokia, I feel happy whenever i read that nokia is making progress. At the same time nokia along with Windows should market about Symbian belle & in future CARLA which are on Par with Android OS. It should be SYMBIAN+WINDOWS=NOKIA SmartPhones
3STAFF, 24 Nov 2011Well our call centre is based in Manchester now, and our coverage has improved over the past c... moreBeen very happy with a 3 Wifi Hotspot (Huawei make) the few times I am in London for work.
How many do you think you have sold?
I think Nokia & windows are getting a feel of the smart phones market.
are they considering Lumia as the savior?! dont think so. both companies can afford some cash loss before they start the actual war like some windows mobile officials said (the war has not started yet)
in reply to 3 staff id rather pull my own teeth out.£ is cheap for a reason.Naff coverage and poor customer service and locked full of bloatware handsets.Enough said me thinks.As for being based in manchester thta means nothing.
lol some of u just dont get it;~)))) winphone wont fail because of good marketing, adds bla bla why apple sold so many iphones????? ppl dont need quad cores or other high end rubbish, 90% of customers want a nice looking, easy to use ,,cool, phone and this is why new nokias and iphones are on the top now this is what ppl want and we normal customers just dont care about YOU geeks lol
