Unconvinced the Nokia Lumia 900 is a success? We don’t have hard sales numbers and we won’t get official word from Nokia until their Q2 2012 financial results come out in a couple of months, but at least one firm is claiming Nokia’s return to the high-end smartphone market in America has been second only to the world’s top smartphone.
Vision2Mobile has uploaded a feature that rounds up April’s top selling handsets for each major carrier in America, and the results have been verified by research analyst firm Canaccord Genuity. In AT&T’s category it was revealed that the Lumia 900 skyrocketed past Samsung’s Galaxy S II to capture the number two spot. That means sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 in April was second only to Apple’s iPhone 4S, which sells upwards of 4.3 million units in one quarter on AT&T. Here’s what Vision2Mobile had to say about the sales performance of the phone:
We’ve heard good things about sales of the Nokia Lumia 900, but now we have some evidence to back it up. The first Windows-based LTE device caught fire at AT&T in its debut month, landing at No. 2 on this list. The price is certainly nice – just $100. Now we’ll see if it can stick around for a while.
It looks like the combination of a big marketing push with an emphasis on the in-store experience have made the Lumia 900 the success we expected it to be. Oh yeah, there’s that killer price too. Even if you didn’t bother to pick up one of these gorgeous polycarbonate bad boys in April, credit should be given when it’s due and in this case Nokia has definitely surpassed expectations. Now we’ll have to see just how well things turn out in the rest of the world.
