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.

It was released today in Norway. The N9 has been on the market longer, so the comparison is a bit flawed. (Is the 800 available in the US yet?)

Comparison is not flawed.
To enumarate just few things:
* Lumia was realesed FIRST in countries NOKIA heavy.
* Lumia got heavy ad. from NOKIA, MS, and Carriers.
* Lumia was pushed as flag product of Nokia.

Non of that can be said of N9.

So if Nokia can not push its flag product with favorable treatment, against its now "niche, research" product. Than maybe wrong smartphone is flag product, don't you think??

Most N9 was sold in China where it apparently received some amount of advertisement. In short N9 was almost hidden on markets where Lumia was released, but did have a few BIG markets where Lumia was not pushed that much (if at all, anyone seen a Lumia in China?)
