Analyst survey in Europe disses sales potential for the Nokia Lumia line of Windows Phones
Alexander Peterc from Exane BNP Paribas issued a note to the bank's clients that only 2.2% of the people he surveyed have the intention to buy a Nokia Windows Phone this season - Nokia's Lumia WP line is currently represented by the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 smartphones.

We've heard such predictions before, and Nokia has been refuting claims that the Lumia 800 isn't selling well, with some indirect proof for the opposite, but until the numbers are in officially, nobody knows for sure.
