Update: Nokia Doubles Analyst Predictions Sells 1,000,000 Lumia’s 4th Qtr 2011
With all the doom and gloom predictions surrounding Nokia these days it’s really nice that we can get actual figures of how Nokia’s Windows Phone are selling.
Research firm Morgan Stanley claims that Nokia has sold approximately 1 million Lumia Windows Phones in the 4th Quarter of 2011. This is DOUBLES the figure that most analysts predicted that Nokia would sell.
This combined with the fact that the Nokia Lumia 900 took home several awards this week in Vegas at CES means Nokia had themselves a pretty good last 4 months.
The future is not looking so bad for Nokia either. With predictions of 37 million Lumias being sold in 2012 and 64 million Lumias being sold in 2013 Nokia seems to be turning the corner. If Nokia continues to surprise the analysts like they did last quarter in the next few years they will be king of the smartphone hill again in no time at all.
UPDATE: It is now official Nokia has sold more than 1 million Lumia phones. This is not to bad being that in the 4th Qtr the Lumia phones were only released in Europe, Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.
