Nokia Lumia 800 blowing past other Windows Phones, bringing new users to Windows Phone in France
According to data released by Arnaud Michelet, developer of the France Trafic use of the Nokia Lumia 800 shot up over a 5 week period, overtaking all of the current Windows Phone 7 handsets, both first and second generation.
There is no corresponding dip in the use of current handsets, showing the Lumia 800 is drawing new users to the platform, expanding the installed base by about 1/3 in our quick estimate.
Unless Nokia has been promoting the app, the data clearly shows Nokiaâ€™s media blitz is having a good effect. Another data point to add to the many others which show Nokia sales are pretty good after all, despite some misinformed analysts.
