Until we hear official wording from Nokia (or Microsoft) we’re left with what the analysts are predicting or estimating with regards to how many Lumia Windows Phones the Finnish company managed to sell.
Instead of being forced to believe the perspective of a single analyst we can have a better idea; there were several estimates ranging from 800,000 units to 2 million but Bloomberg made an average of 22 analyst predictions to come up with 1,3 million units sold worldwide to operators and retailers by the end of 2011.
Many have written off the Espoo-based company (or considered that Nokia going Windows Phone was a fatal decision) but the market responded pretty well to the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800. We still don’t have official numbers from Nokia but, according to analysts, anything beyond 1 million for the two phones in merely two months (the Lumia phones were launched on October 26) is a strong figure. It would not only place Nokia back on track but would also make investors a bit less skeptical.
