Considering they were on backorder, it's no wonder they're so high up the list. Perhaps as word gets out about it they might sell even more strongly

Have no idea why the price isn't listed on these phones. That might help us understand why these phones are performing so well in the top four.

is it just me or does it seem stupid to categorize phones by color differences...

I hope the sales of the Nokia 900 will exceed expectations, with Windows Phone stepping up its game, Android and iOS will have to innovate more leading to a better and smarter market.

I already tried one. It's a the best Windows phone out there. One of the managers said they already sold at least 30 at his store.

Specs seem pretty low-end. What's the attraction?

Only spec that's actually low end is the processor, which is still only a single core 1.4 GHz (plenty to run WP7.5, but low-end relative to non-Windows flagship devices). Otherwise, the rest of the specs - LTE, 8 MP camera, 4.3" screen, FFC - are right in line with other high-end devices.

Overall, I think the attraction stems from the fact that it's Nokia (which people equate to great build quality and industrial design) and that it offers a different experience from the current major players that have dominated the market for the past couple of years (in terms of OS).

The attraction is the mix of the fantastic phone design, the refreshing Metro UI and the unmatched fluidity of the OS. Try one and see for yourself.

I am Glad for Microsoft and Nokia to be in the game again this smart phone has 3 things going for it despite it's low specs compared to High end Android smart phones or the Apple Iphone 1= the metro OS is fast simple and works well. 2 Award winning case design, 3= it wont cost you an arm and a leg to get one. I think Nokia delerratly designed this smart phone this way so it give the Public a good bang for the buck smart phone. I donot think this smart phone will make or break Nokia because Nokia's Best the Nokia Windows 8 class smart phones are coming out later this year with all the Higher technology in it that the High End Android and Apple Iphone's have. The Nokia 900 is only the beginning round for Microsoft and Nokia. the best is yet to come.
yes Virginia we do need a third smart phone eco system out there
