A couple of weeks ago, Finland based mobile phone manufacturer Nokia launched its new flagship device to showcase Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 operating system. Big things are expected of the Nokia Lumia 920, and early reports suggest that it has been every bit as popular as Nokia and Microsoft have hoped.
A report from Yahoo China has stated that the device has sold 2.5 million units since its launch a couple of weeks ago. Given the level of competition from the likes of Samsung and Apple which continue to dominate the market by a very wide margin, this is a very impressive feat in such a short space of time.
We recently reported that stocks of the Nokia Lumia 920 have sold out of Germany and the United States, and according to the report this has also been the case in Australia and a handful of other countries.
Over the last couple of years, Nokia has been largely unable to compete with market dominating handsets from competing manufacturers like Samsung, HTC and of course Apple. As a result, the Finnish manufacturer has struggled financially and has been somewhat pinning its hopes on the success of the Lumia 920 and its midrange counterpart the Lumia 820 which is also reported selling well. With more and more people seeking alternatives to Apple’s iOS and to some extent the Android OS, Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 platform has become a very appealing choice. Coupled with Nokia’s premium hardware features and a host of other impressive software innovations, it is easy to see why the Nokia Lumia 920 has quickly become a popular choice.
The success of the Nokia Lumia 920 has even reportedly caused an increase in Nokia’s share prices of around 25%. Given the company’s recent financial struggles, it will surely be breathing a sigh of relief.
