Nokia sells 2m N97 smartphones in three months

Nokia logoNokia has revealed that it has sold two million of its flagship N97 smartphone since it went on sale in June. The company claims the numbers have "surpassed expectations" and that the tally beat the record for its previous best-selling smartphone, the long-serving N95. The company added that it has sold a total 10 million touchscreen phones in 10 months, the remaining 8 million of which were the older, less expensive 5800 XpressMusic.

Company CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo didn't provide details of the company's total smartphone sales over the period but touted the touchscreen figures as proof that Nokia is the "undisputed leading player" in smartphones.

The claim is likely based on Nokia's absolute market share, which sits at 45 percent with 18.4 million smartphones of any type sold in the past quarter alone. However, as a touchscreen device maker Nokia has fared relatively poorly compared to Apple, which sold 5.2 million iPhones just in the same quarter and easily passed Nokia's own figure despite having only one core model.

These results are expected to change sharply in the near future. The iPhone 3GS' popularity is exceeding demand, but Nokia World this week was marked by the introduction of multiple touchscreen phones, including the newly leading N900 as well as the less expensive N97 mini and Nokia's first-ever phone to use a finger-friendly capacitive touchscreen, the X6.
