Chinese Nokia Lumia 800c "sales have been brisk in all possible channels"


The Nokia Lumia 800c launched in early April on China Telecom to long queues and reports of good sales.

A bit late, we have a comment from Nokia regarding the performance of the handset.

According to China Daily, Wang Jingqiu, the company’s Beijing-based spokesperson, said "sales have been brisk in all possible channels".

There is some other evidence that the Lumia range is selling well, with Statcounter showing the market share of the handset rapidly rising from a low of 0.16% at the beginning of the year to 0.4% now, ahead of Blackberry, which never really took of in China.

Nokia recently reinforced their range with the Chinese launch of the low-end Nokia Lumia 610, which should help the company reach for that low end high volume price point which has always been their forte.

Thanks Manuel for the tip.
