Nokia #1 again in Finland as Nokia Lumia 610 and Nokia Lumia 900 launch
posted by Alan F. / May 27, 2012, 1:08 AM
The launch also went smoothly for carriers Elisa and TeliaSonera. Elisa Vice President Henri Korpi said that there is demand for the Lumia models and that the phones are off to a good start. TeliaSonera’s consumer business director Juha Koivuniemen said that while business has been good for the Nokia Lumia 900, the sales did not match what the carrier saw during the launch of other Lumia handsets.
Elisa's Korpi said that now was a good time to launch a phone with school ending and graduates getting a new phone as a gift, or receiving money that they can use to buy a new phone. Korpi mentioned that the Finnish market is super competitive and also brought up the impending launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III. DNA’s Aavikko said that pre-orders of the Nokia Lumia 900 and the Samsung Galaxy S III went "hand-in-hand" He added that sales of the Nokia Lumia 610 on Friday were very successful and sales for the Nokia Lumia 900 were promising but within expectations.
Nokia's share of the Finnish smartphone market was down to 31% and the manufacturer embarrassingly was not leading its own home country in smartphone market share.Thanks to the Nokia Lumia series, Nokia is back on top in its home town with Korean bred Samsung second scoring a 28% of the Finnish smartphone market, and Apple third with a 21% slice of the Finnish pie. Taking a look at the latest data from Statcounter, as of this month, Windows Phone has a rather significant 7.53% share of the Finish smartphone market.
While the population of Finland is small at 5 million people, what is important is the symbolic leadership of Nokia's home country. If the OEM can't own the leading market share where it has it's HQ, something bigger than thought is eating away at the company.

Im willing to buy a nokia lumia 610 but the only thing holding me back is lack of awesome games like temple run and other games like angry birds and fruit ninja have to be paid for.

The Tango update simply lowers the specs requirement of Windows Phone 7.5 without any compromises on performance for budget devices (which is quite controversial, seeing as many apps aren't available for Tango devices because of the low specs).

Samsung has 28% of the market compared to apple's 21%. Samsung's leading smartphones in sales in are Androids (and I doubt 7% of their sales in Finland are bada or Windows phones). Ergo, Android, and just from a single manufacturer, outsells ios. RTFA and do the math next time

Mmm, nope mate. How many current smarphone models does Samsung have? 10, 20, 30? How many models, does Apple have now? One. How much of the profit goes to Samsung? 20-25%. How much of it goes to Apple? 80-85%. With ONE phone. Without the help of Google, without copying the design and software of anybody.

I have tried nokia lumia 610 at nokia store in my country. I should say that experience is worse than lumia 710 as phone is feel as not as responsive than 710. I'm worry 610 would bring bad reputation to entry users who want to move to nokia windows phones. The phone looks pretty though.

i personally also have tried the 610 at a nokia store here in my country but i wont agree with you... its smooth as the other lumia devices... i comapred it to the lumia 800 and open same apps at the same time on both devices... and it appeared that the lumia 610 is just 1 sec behind in opening or loading apps... so its not a worse experience as youve mentioned in your comment... the only drawbacks is the low RAM and processor...

I'm surprised you found lumia 610 has smooth experience. But I'm swear i tried 710, 800 and 610. LUmia 610 caught my eyes because its look. But when I tried, omg it lags often. Btw i tried at nokia store in Kuala Lumpur. Different batch maybe?
