Nokia Lumia 800 tops sales for network KPN Netherlands, out selling iPhone, Android and BlackBerry

Well would you look at that. According to KPN, the largest network/operator in the Netherlands, the Nokia Lumia 800 is outselling the iPhone 4S and is the TOP of the best sellers chart. Before it was just second place below iPhone 4S. Some thought that was the best it was ever going to get given initial sales pushes.

Pretty great news for a phone doubters are saying nobody wants. So a hit in the UK and growing to be a hit in the Netherlands too. It seems as people are giving the Lumia a chance, they’re really liking it. Fantastic hardware and design, great software, produces something that’s always more than the sum of its parts. Fact.

Though contracts are varying the Lumia 800 is cheaper than the iPhone 4 (seems same tariff for Galaxy S Plus). Reports from UK sellers note that customers coming away really happy and impressed with the Lumia 800 and with a happier wallet as the phone is cheaper (yet, imo, looks better, more solid, and also has a fast, fluid easy to use smartphone OS)

More Netherlands related news – reports on research by GfK that by the end of 2012, Windows Phone is expected to earn 10-15% marketshare. Right now the share is negligible. I wonder what that research is based on. More tangible perhaps than those forecasts predicting things 5 years into the future (Even if it is rosy for Nokia should WP be near or at the top, it’s way too far out ahead and still with relatively small success).

Great job, Nokia. Three cheers Nokia fans! Such news like this is rare and extremely unexpected.
