Above we have the the latest rankings for January for Finland’s largest carrier, Elisa, and the third largest, DNA.

As we have come to expect, Nokia Lumia handsets have continued to sell well in Finland, with Nokia’s older range carrying much of the burden, as can be seen by the Lumia 800 outselling the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S 3, likely due to attractive pricing and continuing shortages of the Nokia Windows Phone 8 range.

On the corporate side where buyers are less price sensitive the Lumia 920 has managed to make it to the top of the list, followed by the 800 and 820.

Elisa corporate Connectivity-Business Director Jorma Niemelä notes the presense of Lumia handsets at all price ranges clearly confirms the company’s position in enterprise with Lumia sales growing strongly, with companies choosing Windows Phone due to Office applications integration, familiar user experience, as well as integration with companies’ existing Windows backend systems. “Windows Phone 8 appears to meet the expectations of our consumers and business customers,” he said.
