The news is out as Nokia recently published their Q3 sales. Yes, sales for Nokia’s current flagship the Lumia 900 fell down to a low 2.9 Million units sold for Quarter 3. This is from a high of 4Million units sold during Quarter 2 of 2012. Basically, if you look at the numbers, it is only worth noting that the Nokia Lumia 900 is relatively new in the market.
If you compare Nokia’s sales for their Lumia flagship to Google’s Android devices, it is quite small. This is if Google’s Andy Rubin’s statement is true. Yes, according to Andy Rubin, they activate about 1.3 Million Android devices on a daily basis. Now, that is a lot per day.
Recently, Nokia said that they sold about 300,000 of Lumia devices in North America alone. This is in spite of the Nokia Lumia 900 coming in with a fatal flaw. What is that flaw? Well, the phone’s screen resolution is nowhere near the rest of the smartphones of today. Basically, you can’t compare it with the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S3. This is even if you pit it against the iPhone 4S or the Samsung Galaxy S2. Yes, that’s how bad it is. But it is quite a different story with Nokia’s upcoming new Windows Phone 8 devices. I am talking about the Nokia Lumia 920 (Nokia’s future Windows Phone 8 flagship) and the Nokia Lumia 820.
The Nokia Lumia 900 comes in with a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels only. Meanwhile the iPhone 4S came in with 960 x 640 pixels. The iPhone 5 came in with 1136 x 640 pixels. Now I guess you know why I said that the Nokia Lumia 900 came in with a fatal flaw.
When it comes to the new Nokia Lumia 920, you can expect a 1280 x 768 screen resolution on its 4.5” screen display. This is something that you can pit against the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
But the one million dollar question is “can Nokia make a huge come back with the new Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820? Well, let’s just all wait and see.
