From the forum:
Nokia Lumia 800, one of the two available Windows Phones from Nokia is expected to have sold one million units during Q4 2011

Nokia Lumia 800 estimated sales figures Q4 2011 

According to a recent report by Morgan Stanley, Nokia will ship 37 million Windows Phone smartphones during 2012. This number will increase to 64 million in 2013. HTC is estimated to ship 6 million in 2012 and 10 million next year. And then we have LG, Samsung and ZTE which will add up even more devices.

So far, we have not received any exact sales figures from Microsoft or any of the Windows Phone manufactures. Probably because the sales figures not are anything to brag about. Smartphones running on the two main competitors iOS and Android currently outperforms the young OS Windows Phone.

Before Nokia hit the market in Europe, IDC estimated that Windows Phone was shipped on 138.000 handsets in Europe Q3 2011. Estimated sales figures for Q4 2011 is 500.000 smartphones.

Competing against Sony Xperia SMotorola Droid 4 and HTC Titan II the blog Cnet recently awarded Nokia Lumia 900 as the best smartphone at CES 2012 voted by Cnet editors and users. Coming to AT&T in March, this is the first Nokia Windows Phone hitting the U.S market. It seems Nokia is doing something right with their new Windows Phone smartphones.

It also noteworthy to see that Symbian still is the major source of income for the Finnish telecom giant. Morgan Stanley estimates that most 2012 handsets from Nokia will be running Symbian with sales figures up to 40 million.

Do you think Nokia and Microsoft will succeed with Windows Phone devices in 2012?

Excellent. Quite a positive start for Nokia but they still need to do more. I think a Lumia will be my next device

Glad to see Nokia going up again.
From the path we're on, it appears that most phones that are sold will be smartphones.
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
A good thing too is also i have not heard of many complaints about these new Nokia phones which is positive. Only issue i have heard is the battery issue but there is an update coming for that
carkitter2 years, 7 months ago
I think this Morgan Stanley forecast is wrong. It is based on Nokia's overall sales stabilising from 2011-13 while the mix of OS changes from Symbian dominant to Windows Phone dominant. The faulty assumption is that nearly 50% of Nokia customers won't notice that their new device is running Windows Phone not Android.
Buyers of Symbian phones generally don't know that their phone has a smartphone OS on it, whereas Android buyers know they are buying an Android phone that can run apps. Assuming that 37m smartphone buyers are going to choose the Nokia brand over the Android brand in 2012 requires faith indeed, especially as it looks from the estimates that Nokia only shifted about 400,000 Windows Phones in Q4 2011.
More likely is that Nokia will shift 4-5m Windows Phones next year and if the 40m Symbian figure is accurate, then we should be the buyout by Microsoft announced before the year is out.

I guess we'll just wait for you to get one then we'll have lots of complaints
I was a huge fan of WM up to 6.5 but I have absolutely no interest in even trying any latest version...

In terms of WP7, I think that there is a future for it. The metro UI is becoming increasingly popular and has started influencing others such as SE's new Android skin. Microsoft are obviously massive and are all around us... Xbox has recently adapted to incorporate the metro UI and once windows 8 comes out I think that this will become more popular as people get use to the interface. Well it has to succeed otherwise Microsoft are screeeeewed!
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
Having used it i found it smoother than Android and really fluid. Its a big improvement from 6.5 version.
hihihans2 years, 7 months ago
I know that if more people have a wp7.5 device that further development will follow but I really don't care how many are sold. I like my Lumia despite it's little flaws, more or less the same as iPhone has.
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
Indeed as long as your happy who cares how many are sold. Its doing pretty well and the more people get to use and try it i think they will like it more. Yes like all OS out there it has its niggles but over time it will improve.

Windows = boring and restricted
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
It's not boring but as restrictions go it all depends what you like doing. If your not bothered about customisation & you like the OS nice clean & simple then who cares??
hihihans2 years, 7 months ago
indeed, I like it nice and easy. That's why I have a Mac as pc and why I liked SE.
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
I still love Android but the problem with it is too much bloat,eye candy=lag compared to Windows
Tsepz_GP2 years, 7 months ago
Not a fan of WP either. I find the UI odd, and that the large fonts waste screen real estate, no proper multitasking even in Mango, and the Memory card situation is ridiculous.
Lets wait and see what Nokia says about sales of their Lumia phones.
Personaly i will always think they should've stuck with MeeGo and Intel, it would've made things far more interesting in the smartphone scene, IMO, as far as i can see, WP is realy limiting Nokia.
hihihans2 years, 7 months ago
To the "regulair" customer it should be appealing to have two major companies combined in one phone.

The 800/900 look good but for me (and mobile review) this 2 are boring and old phones

boosook2 years, 7 months ago
LOL! How will they sell 37 million WP7 handsets in 2012 if they only sold 500.000 phones in 2011 Q4? That means 2 million phones in a year, even if the sales should raise as long as new models are introduced it seems unlikely to me that they will sell so much.
But the thing that strikes me more is how everyone is saying that Nokia has done a good job, that people like WP7 and so on with only 500.000 handsets sold... the truth is that the Lumia is a failure and WP7 is still not selling, and that Morgan Stanley made an analysis that has been tailored to make things look better than they really are. Microsoft marketing is working, but in the end it's the user who decides what to buy...
rikken2 years, 7 months ago
I have wondered about that too 37 mill is a hugh number and it is hard to compete with the success of Android and ios. I was one of those who believed that Nokia would surprise with their windows phones but I find them boring without any special to offer
Bonovox2 years, 7 months ago
It ain't failed it's still early days. I am loving my Lumia it's truly an amazing device no issues at all.

Where is this 500k figure coming from?!
And there are still people quoting mobile review?!! Really now!! What's going on??
Marly2 years, 7 months ago
^^ Exactly, long time ago Mobile Review was a good review site, but Eldar has written so many biased reviews, first against SE, now against Nokia, nobody takes him seriously anymore.
