Finnish Elisa and DNA have released last month’s sales charts, and as expected the iPhone 5 has stormed up the charts and Nokia’s aging Windows Phone 7.5 range is fading.

Nokia’s one star in Finland has however been the Nokia Lumia 610, which is the 4th best selling consumer smartphone on Elisa and 6th best on DNA, providing competition for low-end Samsung android handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Xcover.  Until Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 handsets reach the market their phones will likely have to take back seat to newer handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone 5.

Another bright light for Nokia is in enterprise, where Nokia handsets are selling better than most competing handsets.

In UK USwitch has the Nokia Lumia 610 charting in 10th spot after entering the charts last month, powered by the strength of great deals which sees the handset for sale for as cheap as £13 per month.

October’s chart will likely not be great, but we are pretty sure when Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 handsets gets released it will be roaring up the charts again.

Thanks Arun for the tip.
