4 million Lumias sold in Q2. "Exceeds expectations"


The somewhat good news is that Nokia today reported that it sold 4 Million Lumia phones in 3 months, though these are low numbers considering what Nokia was used to in the past, but it is good news because it shows mobile users aren't afraid of change. The Windows Phone OS platform is fairly new to the mobile ecosystem and many predicted it would be tough to penetrate into a market already dominated by Android and iPhone, but these numbers indicate that Nokia "exceeded expectations".

The dismal news however is that the Lumia phones (particularily the flagship Lumia 900) sold only 330,000 units in the US, and considering the amount of money Nokia, At&t and Microsoft put into marketing the device, and not to forget the gifting of $100 to every Lumia 900 buyer on the At&t network, Nokia put alot into this device and 330,000 units is really REALLY poor!

The news of Nokia's 2nd Quarter was well received as their stock rose 13%, indicating that investors were impressed with how the devices were doing.

Nokia did record a $1 Billion operating loss in that quarter also. YIKES!!

Since the introduction of Lumia devices (last year November), Nokia has sold over 7 million units, while Android and iPhone sell 3 times that amount in a single quarter.

The emergence of Nokia WP8 phones should gradually shift the tide back Nokia's way, with Nokia promising new captivating devices no one has seen before.

Expect these devices to be unveiled in September when Nokia hosts Nokia World!
