More good news for Jolla and Sailfish. On the Finnish carrier DNA, the only carrier currently selling the device, Jolla outsold the iPhone 5S, 5C, Galaxy S4, and every Lumia except the 520. Jolla ended up as number five, preceded by the Lumia 520 in fourth place, the Galaxy SIII 4G in third, and two cheap Galaxy phones as two and one. Sales cover the holiday period.

Of course, with Finland having a small population and Jolla having the home team advantage, this isn't exactly representative for, well, anything, but it's still impressive and good news for the young platform. The fact that Jolla outsold the flagships of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone holds promise for the future. On top of that, out of that top five, the Jolla is the most expensive phone (save for perhaps the Galaxy SIII).

I'm curious to see if they'll be able to maintain this momentum. It's not going to be easy.

Some of you would rather have a root canal than give Microsoft a little credit.

Credit will be given where needed. MS arent there yet... Giving away phones arent really showing much is it?

They're not giving away phones, you're making things up. As usual.

Not that i expect you would even try but i would like to you show me where i have made something up...

If you look at this site you will see that some people have mentioned that they had been offered a wp8 mobile for free with a cheap ass contract.

I unlike you don't have to make stuff up. Nor do i have to manipulate numbers by taking them out of context to show "trends"... You know that huge uptake you talked about the last couple of years that now has given ms ~5% of the global marked.
