Nokia Windows Phone sales projected at 3.8 million units in Q2 2012
Analysts vary in their thoughts about Lumia sales in the three months from April to June, but on average, the number is expected to fluctuate around the 3.8 million mark. Now, to some that might seem even like too big of a number as the company is now almost exclusively focused on Windows Phone, but the launch of the affordable Nokia Lumia 610 in a lot of markets might help.
The handset is running on the latest Windows Phone version available, Mango, and this alone should give it a sizeable advantage over competing low-end Androids that are largely running on the dated Gingerbread.
Lumia 610 rather than the more refined Lumia 800 and 900 and the reason for that is that Microsoft recently announced that the two still very new handsets won’t get Windows Phone 8.
For Nokia, 2012 has been the toughest year. The three big credit ratings agencies cut Nokia stock to "junk" status, the company had to issue two profit warnings and cut its workforce. The only question is not whether this quarter will be bad, but just how bad.
