Over 2.5 million Nokia 5800's shipped in Q1 alone?
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic shipped over a million devices in just 57 days last year. Now, according to Reuters, GC Capital's Tero Kuittinen has calculated that the company could ship another 2.5 million in Q1 alone. This information is unofficial, but if it turns out to be correct, it will clearly indicate that the device now dubbed as the “Poor Man’s iPhone” has turned into a centerpiece for the company.

According to JP Morgan analysts, the sales of the handset are boosted by the “new “cheap chic” attitude to consumption”, which boils down to the fact that people are now more interested in cheap mobile upgrades.
