Nokia reportedly sold more than one million Windows Phone handsets in November and December, according to a recent Bloomberg survey. The news outlet talked to 22 analysts to estimate the Finnish company’s European sales, and 95% of those surveyed listed a seven-figure sum. The highest projection, two million, was nearly double that of the 1.3 million average.
These figures, while not nearly as large as those seen by Apple, are a very good sign for Nokia, which struggled before its partnership with Microsoft. Luckily, the Lumia 800 has been very successful in Europe thus far, setting company records and topping sales charts. The other launch device, the Lumia 710, is doing quite well too.
Nokia’s future looks even brighter. The Lumia 710 was released on T-Mobile earlier this month, and the Lumia 900 announcement wowed CES attendees with its fantastic design and great specs. The latter device is expected to be released exclusively on AT&T Wireless on March 18. And that’s not all; iSuppli has joined analysts in predicting that Windows Phone will jump to second place by 2015, primarily thanks to Nokia.
If Nokia can sell more than one million “good” devices in Europe in just two months, how many “fantastic” devices will it be able to sell worldwide in 2015?
