WSJ: Nokia Sold At Least Eight Million Lumia Windows Phone Devices Last Quarter
According to WSJ, Nokia had a decent sales numbers for Lumia Windows Phone devices in the June through September quarter. It reported that Nokia sold at least eight million Lumias devices up from 7.4 million in the second quarter of this year. And this number is almost double that of the numbers from last year. I’m not much surprised with this number, since low end Lumia devices like Lumia 520 and Lumia 625 are selling in volumes across the world. Also, the real numbers should be definitely more than this 8 million number. When you compare the numbers with last quarter, you might not be impressed. But, you must be aware of the fact that the sales actually dropped from Q2 to Q3 in 2012 in contrast to this year’s sales growth from Q2 to Q3.
Since Nokia and Microsoft has managed to pull some good numbers on the lower side of the market, I expect both of them to execute the same way for the higher end of the market. Nokia is set to unveil their first phablet device Lumia 1520 with 6-inch display and Snapdragon 800 processor tomorrow. Lumia 1520 along with couple new mid-range Lumia devices should further increase the sales of Lumias in the coming quarters. What do you think?
