About 4 million Nokia N8 smartphones sold until now?

Back in November, when Nokia announced that the N8 “has received the highest amount of consumer pre-orders” in its history, it didn’t say how many units it sold (or expects to sell).

Now we’re hearing that Nokia may have shipped as many as 4 million N8 units around the world since launch ( early October) – thus in a quarter.

According to Finland-based research company Inderes Oy, the number of N8s sold is somewhere between 3.5 and 4 million.

Reportedly, the N8 is very popular in the following countries: India, Finland, the UAE, and Malaysia.

4 million is certainly not bad, but it’s nowhere near the number of iPhones sold (14 million in the third quarter of the year). Also, it’s most likely less than the number of Samsung Galaxy S units sold this quarter.

It should be interesting to see how many Nokia C7s will be sold – the C7 being slightly cheaper than the N8, although it has almost similar features.

    “Also, it’s most likely less than the number of Samsung Galaxy S units sold this quarter.”

    Bet you outside the US it isn’t.

    Nokia did not comment the amount of the devices sold. They never do. Here is a list of Nokia’s current smartphones with free global navigation and maps: http://maps.nokia.com/services-and-apps/ovi-maps/compatible-phones Many of them are selling extremely well because you will get in your smart phone a decent navigator with up-to-date maps for $100 (unlocked).

    Inderes is from Finland and they probably have a better view to the Nokia’s current situation than the research companies operating from Manhattan towers like Citibank. Inderes was the most optimistic and closest with their Q3/2010 earnings estimations. Their EPS estimation was 15% less than the actual value. Citibank was wrong with Nokia – as always.

    The actual number is way higher. Just you wait a couple of weeks.

    It is wrong to compare one model of Nokia to iphone. Nokia has many models with Symbian^3. Apple is only for the yuppies, a word that seems to be forgotten nowadays.

    Nokia sold 29 million Symbian phones in Q3/2010. In Q4 they have new hot selling phones like N8, C7, C6-01. At the same time their older models are still selling very well in 190 countries.

    If Google activates every day 300 000 phones during the Q4, it is 27 million. Apple should sell at least 20 million to keep it’s stock price. Nokia will be the leader of the gang in Q4 too. RIM may be now bigger than Apple again.

    170k in November in China alone

    One should consider the whole Symbian lineup against the competition (like the iPhone that is a single model), not only one model like the N8. Nokia shipped over 26 million Symbian handsets in Q3 and I predict it will ship way over 30 million Symbian smartphones in Q4. Compare that against the iPhone, and it is more fair comparison.

  • Vulcan

    Nokia has about a dozen models that use Symbian OS and did ship twice as many Symbian smartphones in Q3 than Apple in the same quarter. And that was without the new models that Nokia has now shipped in Q4. And there is more to come in Q1 too.

    Erm but Q4 isn’t over yet

    Not sure as 4 million feels about right. Remember, the N8 will have no real sales volume in the US and is certainly being outsold by the iPhone in Western Europe.

    That said, since Gartner estimated 2.5 million then, if this figure is right, that’s pretty good and, frankly, call me a snob, but I don’t want to have the same phone as everyone else. :)

    No way will RIM catch up to Apple again. Their 14.1 million figure may go up a little, but Apple’s will go up a lot. With the next set of results, RIM will be several million devices behind, rather than 100k ahead.

    Nokia should just license WebOS for its phones.
