The monthly Finnish sales charts are out, and it continues to show good progress for windows phone in the region.

On Elisa, the countries biggest carrier, there are now 4 windows phones in the top 10, the Nokia Lumia 800, 710, 610 and 900, suggesting we will see a significant update from the already high market share of Windows Phone in the country.  There are now only 3 Android handsets in the top 10. Elisa notes 65% of their sales are now smartphones, and that the Nokia Lumia 900 is the only handset which can take advantage of their Dual HSDPA speeds.

On Sonera the Lumia range made a clean sweep of the 4 positions from 2 to 5, and there are only 2 Android handsets in the top 10. Sonera notes that the Lumia range dominated their sales charts, and while the iPhone was on top, its sales were concentrated in only one model.

"Nokia’s Lumia-line is clearly conquered a strong position in the Finnish mobile end users. The high-end Lumia 900 sale has started very well. The model 42 Mbit / s Dual-Channel HDSPA handset benefits fully from Sonera’s 3G network, which offers high-speed dual-carrier technology can be found in nearly 160 locations, "says sales director Petri Lahtinen from Sonera.

On DNA something has clearly gone wrong. They still note however that the Lumia 900 range was well received, but only started at the end of the month. Lumia 610 sales started earlier, and was also well received. They note the end of the school term raised sales, as gifts of phones, now often smartphones, were typical these days.  Even on DNA’s top 15 list all the Lumia models were present, versus last month, when only the Lumia 800 made an appearance.

It is therefore very likely that the Nokia Lumia range is outselling the iPhone in Finland, and potentially closing in in Android sales there too.

As usual we hope some of this sales success will spill over into other parts of Europe and beyond.
