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.

The Beast will overcome all obstacles. After all, they booted Sony from 1st place in the gaming market while struggling with faulty hardware design. Even with the massive competition, I have no worry for Nokia either.

I just wished they stop with the creepy "phone parties" and other assorted "events". What does this stuff have to do with phones?

PS: The model still sucks (the carrier being the customer). And I still will want a Samsung Focus S.

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.

Sony simply decided to trade some of Playstation market share to make sure that Bluray wins over HD-DVD. And it worked.
