Nokia Lumia 800 takes top sales spot in France, Samsung Wave #2
posted by Michael H. / Nov 03, 2011, 9:31 PM
Of course, this is just the sales for one week at the mega-retailer in France, but this is still pretty crazy to see especially just a couple weeks after the launch of the iPhone 4S, which actually came in way down at number 5 on the list. So, the top spot went to the Windows Phone Mango flagship phone, the Nokia Lumia 800, followed by the bada Samsung Wave 575, the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro, Samsung Galaxy S II, and the iPhone 4S make up the top 5 on the list.
Of course, it should also be pointed out that each color and carrier for each device is split up on the list, so the Lumia 800 came in #1, and #9, while the iPhone 4S came in #5, #8, #11, #13, #15, #37, #39, and #46. So, it's likely that once you add it all up, Apple likely had more sales combined. Still, it's nice to see WP7 and bada getting some adoption. We're sure that if Peter were still with us, he'd be very proud right now.

It has been a month, maybe more since Peter left and we still talk about him. Hope he still cruises this site every once in a while just to know he really made an impact. Buy, boy this would actually eat at him a little. He HATES Windows Phones, and was sure Nokia would just roll over and die using it. That a Nokia WP branded phone topped a Bada would just kill him. I love it. Good early press for Nokia continues!!

I probably shouldn't have used that phrasing. He's not dead, he just doesn't come to PhoneArena any more because we don't cover enough bada news. So, he's likely off on some bada site somewhere. Not sure where that would be, because most bada news sites aren't in English.

I use to love how Peter would say Bada was better than Android. Even though Samsung is heavily invested in Android and it has made Samsung number 1. Bada is pretty much just Touchwiz you see on Android anyway lol. He had a lot of passion so you gotta give him credit on that.

Calling out Peter was really cool! Damn, that guy grew on me (and I bet on a lot of others who frequent PA as well)!

Yeah, I have to admit, even though I'm a WP7 fan and Peter was always bagging on it, he did grow on me. In fact, I'm happy about Bada being at #2 mostly because I would love to see it grow and prove him right.

The French has good taste, indeed. How can anyone resist the amazing lines and curves of the Nokia Lumia 800.

You have PER-FEC-TLY said it. well...okay, I'm french... Seriously, I think the Lumia is really beautiful...and, you know, in France we like small players. We always take part for the weakest. I'm not joking, it's like this. I've not done it, but I'm pretty sure I will have my Lumia 800 will be mine. When Bouygues Telecom (my carrier) will have it.

to me the Lumia800 was a big disappointment... front facing camera is gone when video chat apps started showing up! Notification LED is really important to me...and it is gone :\ Other than the polycarbonate body and camera, I find nothing impressive about this phone...it is just as good as a Samsung focus for me, which costs 250$ on Amazon for the first time I find WP7 standards drawing back user experience (Hardware wise), but after all the trick is to do the most with the least resources...but for the standards MS has sat, I find WP7 devices pretty much expensive (Including Nokia devices; even though they are NOT made by using cheap labor in poor countries) After All Nokia N9>Lumia800 in looks and hardware but WP7>MEEGO in Ecosystem in the sense of Apps market and OS support this is just my opinion, as average users may not agree with me on that
