PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless How many N9's did Nokia sell, and how many Lumias did Nokia sell? It's an interesting thing to ponder, because estimates by Tomi T. Ahonen seem to indicate that, despite decidedly undermarketing the thing, the N9 faired considerably better in the marketplace than the Lumia did.

Sony pretty much gifted MS the lead in the gaming market.

Firstly they waited a whole year after the XBox 360 had launched to release the PS3. Secondly the price of the PS3 was absurdly high when compared to the 360.

Given those factors it was virtually impossible for MS to fail overhaul Sony, dodgy hardware or not.

Had the PS3 come out 6 months earlier and much closer in price to the 360 the story would probably have been very different.
