Nokia ships 1.3 million Nokia Lumia units in 2011 according to average analyst estimate

Espen Furnes, a fund manager for Storebrand Asset Management,was impressed by how the Lumia did. "The numbers look promising. If Nokia is able to have a strong launch and surpass at least 1 million and keep that type of momentum, this would help put them in a credible position that is crucial to winning back investors." Lee Simpson, an analyst for Jefferies based in London, noted that the lack of major competition probably left some space for Nokia to report a good three month quarter on January 26th. Simpson noted, "There weren’t a lot of the hero handsets out there-HTC were struggling, RIM didn’t have a show-me device, Sony Ericsson and Motorola weren’t really stepping into the mix, so there was probably enough space for Nokia to be able to point to fourth- quarter numbers they were happy with." Nokia is expected to report a loss of $119 million for the period.
While T-Mobile has the Nokia Lumia 710 priced at $49.99 with a signed two year contract, Walmart and Costco are offering the device for free and for 1 cent respectively, with a signed 2-year pact. The Nokia Lumia 800 has already been released in some countries, and will launch on Monday in Sweden. Late last year, there was speculation that the model was being tested by both Verizon and AT&T for the carriers' respective LTE networks. The flagship Nokia Lumia 900 received awards at the recent CES in Las Vegas, and will be coming to the States via AT&T with T-Mobile a possible destination as well.
It is important that the Nokia Lumia line get off to a good start as many analysts and customers aren't too confident that the Windows Phone powered models can compete with the Apple iPhone and Android models. To put in perspective the average analyst estimate of 1.3 million Nokia Lumia phones shipped in the period, analysts believe Apple to have sold 25 to 30 million iPhone units during that same period.

It would go as high as 5-20 million units if they have made a WP N8.

pshh yea right. I haven't seen a Windows Phone get sold at my store in weeks. 199.99 for Focus S and Titan when the iPhone and Skyrocket is at the same price. No comparison. They need to drop the price and then let's talk.

Actually, the last paragraph says it all. I think this article is more about iPhone than anything else. The writer must be an iPhone troll. Sure he/she may state those are the facts, but is it really necessary to compare Nokia's new device to the established iPhone? It's just another article to belittle Windows and in this case Nokia as well. What's even more funnier, this writer is quick to state "analyst and consumers aren't too confident..." then no mention of these same said analyst who claimed Nokia shipped less than 500K phones in this same period. None! Now, had the title of this article been "Nokia Beats Analyst Expectations" that would have been something. But that would not have fallen into the narrative to bad mouth Windows/Nokia at every turn. I understand most of these writers have an agenda therefore I read their articles knowing they will spew their contempt and bias of Windows Phone that's just the way it is because they have the power of the pen.

Are you waiting for so-called 16 mp camera? Marks my words. HTC has NEVER done a good camera phone (the onlx exception is 4g slide)...16 mpx won't change this. They just do not know how to do that...and if the camera is not the dealbreaker there a plethora of other, much better android phones.
