Nokia Lumia 800 tops o2 Germany best selling list

o2 Lumia 800 Top Sell

The Nokia Lumia 800 seems to be selling relatively well, probably thanks to the sheer size of the marketing campaign that the Finnish handset manufacturer has embarked on across Europe, and soon the U.S. Websites such as Expansys in Australia have the Lumia 800 ranking #1 in top seller lists. The handset is also packing a punch in Germany (on o2 of all carriers), beating the Samsung Galaxy S II, Nexus, and more.

Nokia were previously setting up blocks of ice that contained a Lumia 800, which made it possible for viewers to watch as the public attempted to smash through the element and get their paws on the Windows Phone. It's good to see the German public are actually purchasing the device as well as wandering around with a pickaxe.

I'm not surprised, their TV marketing campaign over here is pretty enormous. Glad to hear of WP getting a little traction!

ballroomdru says:

I only hope they do a similar marketing push over here. If they do then Windows phone will get some serious traction.

London Welsh says:

Lumia 800 selling well? Not according to the Guardian (and the FT)
"Despite a TV, poster and print advertising campaign rumoured to have cost more than £20m, the Lumia "sold only narrowly more than Nokia's more basic 'Touch and Type' phone", the FT reports".

Rich Edmonds says:

You're jumping too quickly on the gun. The sales have been effective in rebuilding Nokia's brand under the Windows Phone banner. The Lumia family isn't about success, it's about building foundations for 2012 to be solid for the manufacturer.

WinFan1 says:

The Lumia 800 went on sale on 16 November, which will have limited its potential to appear in sales figures when ranged against Apple and Samsung – which have managed to pull far ahead of it in the smartphone UK market. More than half of UK mobile users own a smartphone, according to Ofcom data released last week. >from your own article you should read before you post ..... that does not mean its not selling well

Such a party pooper. Get out of here with that nonsense.

Hoekie says:

@London welsh; I just read the story and it has a lot of butts of which one is that it has only the sales of the Lumia 800 of a couple of weeks and not the whole sales period.
Looking at the sales charts of most providers, the Lumia 800 is listed at 1 or 2 in the list of best seling phones. And not in just one country but in a lot of country's. Where I live, the Netherlands, the Lumia 800 is the top selling phone for allready 2 weeks in the sales chart of a major provider KPN. and look at "best verkocht".
Lets wait for a full sales period before jumping into conclusions.

London Welsh says:

FWIW I tend to agree with most of the criticisms of the Guardian article, and I am actually a Lumia 800 owner myself. However, this is generally how the mainstream media is spinning the Nokia/Lumia story. The Guardian in particular has published two other articles about the 'poor' Lumia sales in the past few weeks alone (I don't have these immediately to hand but they're easy enough to track down on the site).
I'm not convinced though whether the phone has penetrated into public consciousness. I was at an xmas meal a few days ago and was using the Lumia to take photos. People were genuinely interested in it, but only 1 of them had heard of it or Windows phone before - this was a group of 12 people with varying age, ethnicity, gender etc, who all loived in London - although I am not trying to claim a representative samplle! Show me 12 people who've never heard of an iPhone or iPad and I'll show you 12 corpses.
Their interest took a serious dent when the word 'windows' came up, however, and the usual jokes about BSOD etc all came out. Maybe there really is a serious perception problem with the use of the word 'Windows' for a phone?

Cartman says:

I would agree that the word "Windows" is bad for the platform although I can understand why they stuck with it. It is especially bad for people who have used Windows mobile as they dont even want to consider using another "Windows" phone.

I was going to wait for this to hit the US on at&t but I didn't have time to wait with the 30 day return policy looming. I ended up going with the Focus S for its bigger screen and general overall awesomeness. I'll see if it was worth the wait when they make their way over here next year.
