Nokia finds itself back on the Swedish phone charts after 8 month sabbatical

Nokia finds itself back on the Swedish phone charts after 8 month sabbatical
When Nokia admitted it had no ‘Plan B’ after Windows Phone 7 over the summer, it left more than a few uneasy about the potential future of the company. In Sweden, in particular, Nokia hasn’t had a phone on the Swedish charts since May 2011. In a welcomed change of pace for Stephen Elop and the rest of the team at Nokia, the Nokia Lumia 800 has made its way onto the charts.

The Lumia 800 has only been out since January 23rd in that region, but has already moved into the 9th slot. While this doesn’t guarantee a complete turn around for the Finland-based manufacturer, a sign of success after an 8 month dry spell certainly points to the possibility that Nokia may have chosen the right basket to put all of its eggs in.

In case you are curious, here are the top 10 phones in regards to sales with last month’s position in parenthesis. The results are tabulated from 85 Telia stores throughout Sweden:

1. Apple Iphone 4S (1)
2. Apple Iphone 4 (3)
3. Samsung Galaxy Mini (2)
4. Samsung Galaxy S2 (4)
5. Huawei Ideos X3 (21)
6. Sony Ericsson Active (7)
7. Sony Ericsson Arc S (6)
8. HTC Wildfire S (5)
9. Nokia Lumia 800 (new)
10. Sony Ericsson Ray (8)

WTF. I didnt understand a word you said. Poor Marketing?. Not enought apps? I still dont understand why people continues to see WP like they are garbage. I have to admitted that Windows Mobile suckssss big time, however Windows 7 (Mango) runs pretty well it has good apps and is Market who continues to expand. I think Windows phone will be competing close to Android and IOS in the near furture. I cannot wait for Windows 8 to shows up

what i think is interesting is that other than the iphone4s and the GalaxyS2, everything on that list is a mid/low range device.

I'm from Sweden and very interested in Windows Phone, and I can say there has been No advertising of Windows Phone at all here in Sweden. Nokia is pretty much the first one to break the silence, since all the operators love Nokia and therefor displays the Lumia 800 as one of the absolute top 3 phones to have right now (which it pretty much is). We have all the other variants of the 1st gen and 2nd gen too (except the US retarded branded variants and the asia-only ones), but the first batch of phones didn't sell well simply because no one understood what it was. Only fanboys like me bought them, and is still very happy with it. People just don't know, and most people certainly just don't understand, what the Windows Phone OS is about. They've never even heard of it. Until now. So things will probably change to the better now that Nokia is all over the ads of all major operators here, kicking ass - taking names.
