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)
