Nokia resonates loudly as they sell 260,000 smartphones per day
It's a safe bet that Nokia's figure is based upon sales of S60 powered devices while Series 40 handsets are probably excluded from the number. Taking a closer look at its closest competition, Android at 200,000 units per day, Nokia's figure is based on themselves as opposed to the multitude of handset manufacturers out there selling Android devices.
Outside of the US, Nokia's presence is widely known especially when they have inexpensive smartphones that don't bite you in the wallet in regards to pricing. Sure, they really need to step it up in the high-end smartphone category, but naturally they still profit from the entry-level to mid-range markets. However, they still need some work to fend off the competition which is closing the gap ever so closely with each passing day.

Yeah, so what, considering your ASP (average selling price) is a bit more than $80, while Apple's iPhone sells for more than $600 on average? Apple sells 12 times less phones than Nokia and makes twice the profit its whole lineup brings. Talk about silly boasting on Nokia's part. Its new smartphone line finally has capacitive screens, woohoo...

And here come the Nokia haters. You all are just upset that despite all of your negative remarks and hate towards Nokia, they STILL outsell every handset maker, including the "mighty" apple. Face facts haters, Nokia is #1 and will continue to be for some time to come. Don't believe it? Just ask all the analyst.....or even better, check the numercal facts.

it's not hate, dude, it's facts. N1 in market share but taking only 22% of all the profits in that industry...apple wasn't even a cell phone company until three yeas ago. hopefully with the new lineup they balance the act for a while, until the strategy is clearer.

The way you wordrd your first statement....that was hate. Apple cannot even make a handset that can make calls properly. They will never hit #1 in the industry. And most never seem to take into account what Nokia is doing in the mid and low end spectrum of the market: They OWN those two areas. Hi-end smartphones are awesome....but they are not the only smartphones. And 260,000 smartphones a day is an awesome feat. Apple wishes they did half of that.

thumbs up dude! Those fanboy are will never understand fact since they are blinded by their prejudice. Nokia (Symbian too) might not be the best manufacturer (best OS) in the world, but no doubt and statistic told us that outside of the United States, it never comes short in comparison to other company (or Android, iOS), not even Apple. Outside of the states, Nokia are dominating the mobile phone world, not just smartphone. Whether you like it or not, no matter how many times you say Nokia sucks or whatsoever, fact is always fact, you cannot deny it, fanboy.
