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.

Nope. It uses the Lumia 710s Average Selling Price and Nokia Q1 results, specifically regional earnings out of the US.

Edit: HEY even Tomi agrees http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/brands/2012/04/who-wants-numb...

Thom, I think its time to mark this article as misleading. It takes data from two independent sources and mashes them into some Frankenstein analysis. The two sources by the way, having reporting cutoffs of a month apart (May vs June)

It also, as I've shown, uses impossible numbers.

I think its well past the time to mark you as misleading. You spent a large part of the comments saying how one persons numbers cant be trusted, yet then use them to agree with yourself… you could at least be consistent. I encourage you to back up any comments above with more than ‘everyone knows’

We get it, you have a thing for WP.

Conversely, do YOU agree with what he said with regards to Lumia 710 sales?

Forget about me, if you take him at his word about 290k Lumia 710s sold I the USA then this 300k Lumia 900 number can't possibly be true.

So do you believe him, or is he misleading?
