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.

While the market has reacted enthusiastically to the recent announcement of Nokia’s Lumia sales, it has never been clear exactly what Nokia’s expectation have been, and if Stephen Elop’s pet project has met them.

Speaking to the YLE talk show A-plus on Wednesday evening Jorma Ollila, Chairman of the Nokia Board of Directors, said that analyst and consumer response to Nokia’s first Windows-based smartphone has been even better than expected.

This is good news for Stephen Elop, and bad news for his critics, who are hoping for the board to eject him due their perception of a failed strategy.

What else can he tell?

He is responsive for stock prices, is not he? Can he risk showing internal Nokia struggles publicly?
