DNA best sellers phones in August 2012
It is a new month, and that means a new set of charts and figures. Today we have Finnish carriers Elisa and DNA and their best-seller charts.
Elisaâ€™s consumer charts show the Nokia Lumia 610 is doing a good job in sustaining sales in Finland, with the handset going up one spot to second place, just behind the Samsung Galaxy S III, which retained the top spot.
The iPhone 4S in the mean time dropped 3 spots in anticipation of a new version being announced soon. Overall Nokia has 8 handsets in the top 15, vs 5 for Samsung and 2 for Apple.
On the business end Nokia is showing even more strength, with the Nokia Lumia 800 outselling the iPhone 4S and the Nokia Lumia 900 outselling the Samsung Galaxy S III, hopefully indicating that businesses are starting to see the value of Windows Phones over Android handsets.
DNA seems to be in a completely different country. On this (smaller) carrier Samsung is pretty dominant, with Samsung holding both top spots, and 4 in total out of 10. Nokia has 5 spots, while Apple one.
It is worth noting that Windows Phone has now decisively overtaken Symbianâ€™s installed base in Finland in only 9 months since the introduction of the Nokia Lumia 800 in February 2012, and it seems likely a strong showing with Windows Phone 8 will start challenging both Android and iOS pretty soon there too.
Thanks Arun for the tip.
