People hungry for Windows Phones, Lumia 920 tops sales chart

People hungry for Windows Phones, Lumia 920 tops sales chart
If the UK sales chart of online retailer Expansys is to be of any indication, the Nokia Lumia 920 seems to be doing quite well right now, as it's currently owning the top spot there. Customers seem to be especially fond of the white Lumia 920, which is like a breath of fresh air in this market filled with black and great slates. Another conclusion we can draw from this chart is that demand for quality Windows Phones in general seems to be pretty stable, with the black version of the HTC Windows Phone 8X being third and the blue version being the 8th most sold handset.

How can we explain that? Is it because of the high-end features these handsets offer? Is it due to demand for Windows Phone 8 getting bigger and bigger as Microsoft initiates its marketing campaigns? Is it just a temporary boost due to the platform's recent launch? These we cannot be sure of, but at least we know that everything will become clear with time. Either Microsoft's going to sink completely (is there any room left below?), or it's going to turn this business into a three-horse race.

What are your thoughts about the future of the Windows Phone 8 ecosystem?

Ray S, or Gay S, or whatever your name is, the only thing that has sunk long time ago is your brain, buddy. After such conclusions, if I was your boss, I'd pick up the phone and fire you immediately. PA, I have written to you before, just hire educated people.

In fairness to Ray, he did an honest review of the Lumia 820, so he deserves some credit. Or at least, he was listed as the author

I think this proves that iOS is starting to show its age. People are simply getting bored with the iOS UI. It's no longer new, impressive or engaging—it needs a refresh. I have two friends who were once iPhone zealots. I mean they would make fun of anyone not using an iPhone. The first of the two upgraded to the iPhone 5. He was explicitly disappointed. He stated, "It's cool but I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it. It's pretty much the same." The second of the two told me, "I'm getting tired of the iPhone. I've had the iPhone since the first one. It's just boring. When I used Windows Phone 7.5, it was a similar feeling I had when I first used the iPhone. I was really engaged in the phone." He pre-ordered the Lumia 920. I think Apple is going to have to innovate the iPhone instead producing more of the same, if they don't want to see this trend incline.

QFT! My parents (some of the key segments for iOS due to the simplicity of the phone) have seen my Lumia 920 and have instantly fallen in love with it. My father is getting the black one and my mother the red (though she wishes that the magenta/pink was available for purchase).

I just got back from the AT&T store and had the opportunity to handle the Lumia 920 and now I officially want to buy this phone. Seeing it in person is really the determining factor, not these online reviews/videos. It's beautifully designed and the OS is seamless, smooth as butter. And you really can't beat the price. When my contract's up in February (with VZW mind you), I'm going straight to the store to get a white one, and I will use it proudly for all to see! I only hope Nokia will come out with a matching tablet but that might be too much to ask.
