Nokia Lumia 800 sales “FAR above sales forecasts”


Peter Wissinger, director for Microsoft’s Mobile Business Group in the Nordic countries have posted on Facebook yesterday what he called a Nokia Lumia (sales) report.

He notes that now that the Nokia Lumia 800 has become available in all Nordic countries sales have been far above expectations and fore-casts, and made a particular note that sales in Finland were TOTALLY “unlikely” (presumably unbelievable).

Reports from Finland so far has been of long queues and shops selling out of the handset, which suggests user acceptable of Nokia’s move from Symbian to Windows Phone 7 may be much higher than expected.

Thanks Omar for the tip.
