We sort of had some feeling that despite the fan fare and advertising revenue given to the Nokia Lumia line, the sales have been a bit lackluster. For the last six weeks of 2011, the Lumia sold an estimated 600,000 devices and ultimately sold about 1.2 million devices for the full period prior to the January quarterly earnings call. This week, Nokia revealed that it has sold about 2 million Windows Phone Lumia devices worldwide. If we’re thinking about this mathematically, it is a relatively simple measure since the last earnings call. Assume that the 600,000 device number is true for a moment. From January onward, the Lumia sold (or gave away) about 600,000 more devices. From the 2 million device number in Q1, we have about 1.4 million devices sold post the conference call. This is in addition to the Lumia 800 and 710 being open to other markets worldwide. When you think about it, the number (either the 2 million, or the 1.4 million device figure post the last quarter earning call) has me a bit concerned. Should we be concerned here no matter which number one uses here?
