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.

To be fair, though, this "hard data" ist still highly speculative. Don't overtake yourself with negative information, because if it turns out differently, a lot of people will look stupid. The tragedy about this news item is, that nobody really thinks it's made up because it's impossible.

As a personal side note, let me add that I do think Nokia and WP deserve to die. But I think everybody needs to calm down and let happen what needs to happen.

Highly speculative in that they may off by some percent? Heck, even if you double that number, or even if you tribble it, it stays a disaster.

But its even more worse. Both, Samsung and HTC, sold each more WP7 devices then Nokia! Heck, they did not only fail against ALL other ecosystems (including Windows CE, Bada and Symbian) but they even fail in the WP7 ecosystem! This is so much of a disaster that it explains why even Ballmer gets in distance to the burning Nokia platform.
