Nokia shipped 1 million Windows Phones in 2011?

Nokia shipped 1 million Windows Phones in 2011?
Morgan Stanley surprised us with its bright expectations for Nokia Windows Phone sales in 2012, but one little number that went a bit under the radar is its estimate for what Nokia has already shipped in 2011. Nokia Windows Phone shipments for the 6 weeks of 2011 have allegedly reached 1 million units, which is better than some analysts’ expectations.

In 2011, Nokia has been selling the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 only in limited markets, and often bundling the devices with a huge marketing push and other devices.

In the UK, for example, Nokias were bundled with a free Xbox 360, a deal very hard to resist. This should have given sales some momentum, but the real potential of Nokia Windows Phones should show in 2012.

In related news, the Nokia Lumia 800 was the first Nokia Windows Phone to get announced and it’s about to get updated soon. The update should introduce high voltage faster charging, optimizations in power consumption and enhanced performance.

yes it would be better, but yet again an apple fan to save the day! As Shakespeare put it best, "you protest too much?" (if it doesnt suck why not let it be? his post would have dwindled like a fart in the wind) But i'm with him here. Apple has a stable Os in IOS, but it doesnt stop the device from sucking in comparison to any competent WP or Android. Not gonna argue the "Apple religion" with people, but it's not rocket science; holy cow the cubs win!

The Lumias could have an International release, they are losing market share.

Can Symbian make through year 2012? But I do hope Windows Phone get an explosive growth in 2012.
