Nokia Lumia 800 still selling greatly, in some places at least

Nokia logoThe Nokia Q4 report will be one of the most interesting things to look forward to at the start of next year. The company took a huge gamble by betting on Windows Phone for their smartphone portfolio and the holiday season sales should show if it will pay off.

And even though the quarter that saw the market release of Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 is nearing its end it's still really hard to tell if they are being well received by the market or not. We are getting all kinds of reports about their sales, so we are not even sure what to expect in the end.

For example, according to the survey done by mobile comparison shopping site MobilesPlease, the Lumia 800 accounted for a mere 0.17% of the UK smartphone sales in November. That's close to 100 less than the market share of the most popular phone according to the survey - Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II.

However, in the Lumia 800 appears to still be doing greatly in the Netherlands. The smartphone was the second best-selling device on KPN Netherlands (the country's largest carrier) at the end of November, than rose to first place at the start of this month and has been staying there ever since.

The O2 Germany most popular phones chart tells a similar story, with the Nokia Lumia 800 occupying the first spot for quite some time now. Over at T-Mobile Germany the Lumia 800 ranks 6th, behind three of the iPhone 4S versions, the black Galaxy S II and the black Galaxy S Plus.

As we already told you, we won't know the truth before the actual results are published, but for the sake of a more competitive market, we are keeping our fingers crossed the Lumia duo will turn out a success.
