Nokia Lumia 800 – Nothing to excite about
Windows Phone is nothing new to the market as there are lot of models available from the rivals like Samsung,HTC and so on. Nokia’s failure to create the excitement about the Lumia 800 is the cause for the number of sales,that went down.
Even Nokia N8 has some out standing features like it’s stunning 12 Mega pixel camera and gained a sales figure of 3.5 Million in the first quarter of sales .But the Lumia seems to come not even closer to this figures.
“With only 2.2 per cent of surveyed buyers firmly intending to purchase the Lumia,” analyst Alexander Peterc wrote, ”Nokia’s first flagship Windows Phone is … far behind the current blockbusters, Apple’s iPhone 4S and Samsung’s Galaxy S II.” The new Lumia is in fact expected to under-perform in relation to Nokia’s last high-profile mainstream device, the 12-megapixel N8. That, Peterc highlights, sold between 3.5m and 4m in its first quarter.”- Slashgear.com
In a reply to the blog post of Slashgear.com Nokia said:
“We have only started our journey to regain smartphone leadership, but we are pleased with the early results. The Lumia 800 is getting good traction in all six European markets where it has already launched. Initial feedback from India, Hong Kong, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan — where the Lumia 800 starting selling this week — has been very encouraging”
