Nokia Lumia 800

Nokia needed a very hard push of its luck to gain some market share in the international market. It appears that it has got a bit of that push with its new Lumia 800, especially in the UK. A few days back, there were false rumors that Nokia is going under loss again and has been losing its market share. This lead to a fall in its share price as well, which is very important for a company to make money and retain its share holders, also to get new share holders. But it looks like the story is the opposite of this.

Even though Nokia is not supposed to disclose its sales figures for individual products outside of its quarterly earnings meeting, Nokia has found it important to disclose this one. Nokia says that the Lumia 800 has been one of its best selling smartphones released in the UK in recent history. Nokia spokesman James Etheridge said “Based on earliest data, the sales start of the Lumia 800 is the best ever first week of Nokia smart phone sales in the U.K. in recent history.”

Net Promoter Scores show the figures which represent consumers’ willingness to recommend a product, and the Nokia Lumia 800 has received the highest scores of any Nokia smartphones released in the UK in the recent history.

“Given our deliberate, sequenced roll out across countries and with future launches ahead, this is a critical metric for long-term success,” Etheridge said.At 1045 GMT, shares in Nokia were down 0.96% at EUR4.15.

The Nokia Lumia 800 was also awarded the Phone of the Year award in London just last week. So Nokia must really be proud of their success. But I dont think this is doing a lot much to popularize Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform. Anyway, Nokia people did show their happiness and pride on the phone in their Making of Lumia 800 documentary video.

Do you own a Lumia 800? Would you recommend the phone? I guess we will see more and more Windows Phones rolling out of Nokia’s stable in the near future.
