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.

Hard to believe

I simply find it hard to believe those numbers, at least under similar contexts. But even if they were true, how relevant are they?
The N9 is present in more countries (China itself could account for more than half of the sales) and was on the shelves longer.
Really a waste of time, all this irrelevant speculation.
And no, Meego couldn't be Nokia salvation. It has a lot of great ideas and it's beautiful, but it's still heavily WIP and they didn't have the time, the resources, and the overall competence.
Just look at how MS is struggling, with lots more resources, experience, and better developer relations. Saying that Nokia had a killer OS in Meego is just wishful thinking.

They had time and resources. They didn't have patience and honesty to refuse to accept MS bribes.
