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.

I'm a real gadget whore and I actually own both of them. I got the Lumia 800 for Christmas from my parents so at least I didn't have to pay for it. I love them both. Windows Mobile 7 is turning out to be one heck of a phone os. I enjoy using it more then my sold iPhone. However the N9 is one awesome phone, my stomach actually gets upset when I think about Nokia discontinuing Meegos. They had created what I thought to be a true iPhone killer. The phone is only a single core 1 ghz cpu and it out performs ever phone that I have put up against it. The OS is so innovative and a real pleasure owning, still after 4 months of ownership I am still finding new things about it that make me smile. Did you know you can install normal linux Deb files. I'm actually running a LAMP development server on it. How friggen outlandish is that. I'm really hoping this is not the last we'll see of Meegos. Maybe due to the success Nokia will introduce a few more. Another gem that Nokia has just released is the 701 with Symbian Belle. If you thought Samsung had great screens the 701 has the brightest screen in the industry. Breathtaking comes to mind and I heard they are going to be using that screen in some upcoming Windows phones. I really hope Nokia gets out of rut they are in as I still really like their phones. Since the beginning I have always had a Nokia phone in my geek arsenal, most of them are indestructible and last a very long time. I was enjoying smart phones from Nokia with their Communicator series way before Apple even came out with the iPod. Sending faxes and surfing on BBS's.
