Nagol, 15 Feb 2012I know right?! All these android phones flooding the market yet they still can't beat Nokia un... moreAre you sure at&t users want to take 2 year contract with unknown new platform. Or does they play safe and pick familiar OS?
So far they havent choose wp7, dont know why they would choose Nokia wp7 phone.
If i had to do that choice i would pick safe one, so far it looks like almost all do the same.
Jay, 15 Feb 2012Lol it's funny Nokia is stil Nr 1.......Sorry for the ios and android fanboys! hwhahahahaI know right?! All these android phones flooding the market yet they still can't beat Nokia unless you're talking about platform OS. But the brand phones itself still can't outsell nokia. And the scary thing about Nokia is they are going to outsell with WP7 and make Nokia sales profit even more due to the fact that Nokia is just starting to push WP7.
People can say that WP7 sales declined, but thats because Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericcson, etc are more into pushing out Android. Nokia is still pushing symbian but more focused on WP7 and will be the top brand pushing WP7. The Lumia phones are just hitting TMO and At&t and will be coming stron gwith tango and apollo updates so WP7 will increase because of heavy support.
Steven, 15 Feb 2012I agree with you on everything but that the general public does not what os it runs... in fact... moreFolks here are not the general public. Quite a number of my friends and family do not know or care what OS the phones have. The Size, Look, Screen and Weight is what they care after what is the phones other have. They picked iPhone because that is the ‘IN THING” and has a ton of accessories that they can have. They would still get an iPhone if it were running WP or Android.

Android Fanboy 4.0.3, 15 Feb 2012'Nokia made the right decision by choosing wp7"!lol Are you kidding? Didn't you see the ... moreFirst... the table said Microsoft is declining not WP7... Second... if they are abandoning Symbian then going to WP7 was the best decision because 1) there is an overwhelming amount of brands making Android devices and Nokia would have to compete all them to get Android fans to like them and 2) WP7 is just starting off and Nokia will help boast sales for Microsoft.
Nokia was not playing on a level field. One of the reasons that Nokia did bad in US was that it did not have any subsidized phone with AT&T and T-Mobil.
Nokia N8 has one of the best camera on the phone but is sells around $400 while one could get an iPhone 4S or a Samsung Galaxy 2 for $200 with a contact. Take a look at the sales at the rest of the world and Nokia did not fare too badly. With the new Nokia Lumia 900 and 710 on AT&T/T-Mobil this year, Nokia sales will pick up. The Nokia Lumia 900 should do well with a LTE radio if it is priced competitively.
Nokia phones usually have decent quality (not counting the cheap phones that they sell in 3rd world countries). The general public does not care what OS the phones have as long as the phones works well and looks good. 2012 will be a turning year for Nokia.

Didn't you see the the decline of wp7 in a large scale.Eflop also had admitted that fact .They will die with the end of symbian unless they lick the foot of google.
Viva la Vida, 15 Feb 2012I'm no longer arguing over Symbian's market share versus the rest. Even Nokia, themselves, are... moreYes but are saying that Symbian is still popular... which the table agrees with you... but I do not think that popularity is the reason Nokia is abandoning Symbian.
hkr, 15 Feb 2012show it in those pictures dude :PI don't think what said was from analyzing tables as much as it was a prediction... because there is no proof in the tables because WP7 is not in the tables.
Ak92774, 15 Feb 2012WIndows phones sales were 2.7 million, Nokia sold 1million Lumia phones. This shows that HTC,S... moreyou read the table wrong... it didn't say that WP7 sold 2.7 million in 2011 or that Nokia sold 1 million of those devices... first it said that there was 2.7 million devices sold running Microsoft... big difference there since Microsoft had WM before WP7... so I would assume to that 2 million of that is WP7 and second this is the data for Q4 2011 which means even if you were correct to say there was 2.7 million WP7 devices sold and Nokia sold a million of them in 3 months and Samsung, ZTE, and HTC sold the other 1.7 million... you incorrect to say that it took them 12 months because it only says the data for the last 3 months of the year.
Steven, 15 Feb 2012Ya there were 17.5 million Symbian devices sold in Q4 of 2011... that is very impressive but t... moreI'm no longer arguing over Symbian's market share versus the rest. Even Nokia, themselves, are now the ones killing it.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2012Whats your source? Google doesnt tell anything about 10 million n8 sold. I'm from Finland a... moreNokia have sold 3 million N8's between October 2010 to December 2010. Come February 2011, the fateful date for Symbian, Nokia did not release any sales figure for any specific Symbian phone since then in hope to kill any promotion for Symbian in favor of WP. Symbian sales, though has dropped substantially in the past 3 quarters, still manage not to drop bellow 17 million. Nokia are selling an average of 20 million Symbian phones in the last 3 quarters. They have not released any remarkable new Symbian phones since the N8. The X7 and E6 that we all know are flops. The 700, 701 and 603 were only released later last year and in fact has been postponed before launch. The E7 is a technological and commercial failure. So what units do you think are those 20 million average sales figure Nokia have been selling since Q2 2011? I know they don't all belong to the N8 but it is undeniable that the N8 is the last successful Nokia Symbian smartphone.
