Nokia Lumia 900 continues to stay at the top of Amazon's best sellers list for AT&T devices

0. phoneArena 11 Jun 2012, 11:24 posted on

Fending off some stiff competition of late, the Nokia Lumia 900 is continuing its reign at the top of Amazon’s best sellers list for AT&T devices – with no one yet being powerful enough to dethrone it. In the mobile industry, it’s quite a rare feat...

That list changes fairly often. Right now the Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) is the #1 smartphone on amazon wireless. The Lumia 900 is the 5th place smartphone.

I know that. I was just trying to show how far down the list the #1 AT&T phone is.

Regardless, I hope this continues for Nokia as they make some damn good phones. Not to mention I would like to see the Lumia 900 or a version of with updated specs on Verizon.

Ummm....right on the front page.http://wireless.amazon.com/

1) Galaxy Nexus
2) Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G Android Phone, Black
3) Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G Android Phone, White
4) HTC EVO LTE 4G Android Phone
5) Samsung Brightside Phone
6) Motorola DROID RAZR 4G Android Phone, Black 16GB
7) Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX 4G Android Phone, Black 32GB
8) Motorola DROID 4 4G Android Phone
9) Nokia Lumia 900 4G Windows Phone, Black
10) LG Xpression Phone

So, of the top 10 sellers on Amazon Wireless, 7 are Android (including the top 4), two are feature phones, and one is a WP7 phone. If that's losing, it sure feels good. (The Nokia is the top selling ATT phone only, but VZW and Sprint phones are selling much more)

You must have reading comprehension disabilities. I clearly stated in my post that the Lumia was only selling best for ATT, but overall Android phones are crushing it.

What has that got to do with anything? Amazon sells phones for all three carriers, and ranks them all together. The Galaxy Nexus still was the highest selling phone for any carrier through Amazon. Period. The Lumia was the 9th highest selling at that time.

It's not like I said the Lumia isn't selling well through Verizon's website.

lol.... these PA guys are making a whole lot of articles based on amazon sales rank - which is one of the worst indicators of the US cell phone market. Hope they'll figure that one day. Most of the people in the US just walk into a store to grab a phone on contract. Amazon sales ranks are heavily biased towards discounted devices (that change every other day).

Who cares where its bought from. Just look at the number of stars and the amount of reviews. That tells you if it's number one. Like the iPhone, for being highly praised by leader shee/bell carriers, user star rating and reviews tell a different story.

Well first off, Amazon's prices provide NO incentive to buy or pre-order a phone from them, so this comes as no surprise. In fact, they recently INCREASED the price on the Samsung GS2 Skyrocket by OVER 200% which for an outdated phone is ridiculous. And pre-ordering the GS3 from them gets you the SAME price as the carriers.. So why bother?

So what you say here comes as no surprise as a result. Until they change their pricing policies I see no reason to do business with Amazon wireless. My two cents.

I do not have to rely on sales reports, editors' reviews or user ratings to justify my love of the Lumia 900. I paid hefty termination fees to transfer to AT&T and purchase the Lumia 900. I have used Blackberrys (great phones bad press), Androids, and an iPhone 4s (very disappointing considering the hype). The Lumia 900 is just the most pleasing, uncomplicated, reliable phone I have used to date. The screen is gorgeous, the text sharp, and graphics are everywhere! I found the androids too cumbersom to use. Unless they have changed, there is too much personalization that needs to be done in order to make the phones as functional as their counterparts, plus the never ending task managing. Not to mention the difficulty with voice dialing over bluetooth. (However, I did appreciate the freedom and ease with which I could purchase and transfer music, ringtones, wallpapers, etc with the Androids.) It seems Nokia has included everything you NEED on the phone. Anything else you wish to add is up to you. IPhone 4s seems bland compared to this Nokia--but I do love Siri. Blackberry's liquid graphic screens are the best I have seen, but too small to watch movies on. All in all, the Lumia is just simply the best phone I have used to date and I love the Windows os. It is simple but not boring. The live tiles are great--they make customization fun and not an invitation to drive yourself mad as you could with the Android screens trying to get the layout and the customization of the seven screens just right. Also, the battery life on this smartphone is terrific. I can get over twenty-four hours on a single charge. And that is with wifi always on. So we can debate forever which os is best and which phones are selling the most. But I am just grateful that we have Nokia and the windows os. It gave me the Lumia 900 and it is everything I need in a mobile phone. If Android, iPhone, or Blackberry has done the same for you, then just enjoy your phone--you have nothing to prove and no need to argue a point. Life is too short to argue over which cell phone or os is best. It is what meets your needs that count.
