PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "If we then use comScore's figure for total smartphone users (110 million) then the data would suggest that there are 330k Lumias in use in the US. This would have been accumulated over a sales period of about four months." Ouch. For a phone with such a huge marketing push, this is quite painful.

I am going to check Tomi Ahonen's blog to further enjoy the news!
By the way Tomi's articles tend to be a little bit longer than this article. ;)

He's also been shown to be consistently wrong, on nearly all his numbers.

Tomi Ahonen was able to more accurately predict Nokia's marketshare than the whole gang in charge of Nokia (who keep on babbling about "sales below expectations", "stronger competition than expected", etc.).

Well at least it's better than Gartner's "WP world domination" prediction.

He was wrong by being too optimistic in his predictions. The WP8 and Nokia numbers are even worse. He was the most pessimistic of all analysts and yet the closest to the actual numbers. By definition, predictions tend to be at least slightly wrong.

Why was this modded down? Google did inform me that the site was hosting malware.
