MNB RG: Finnish Lumia growth in June exceeds May

| June 21, 2012 | 42 Replies

This was written in by Janne who updates us about the rate of Lumia/WP growth in Finland.

Finland Lumia growth for June in StatCounter has this week finally exceeded the rate of growth in May, and sits now at around 9% market-share of existing devices (network use).

This means that that for the first time since the Lumia launch month of February, the rate of growth has exceeded the growth in the previous month.

This suggests that Lumia sales in Finland are indeed growing, instead of holding steady. Likely this is due to the Lumia 900 and Lumia 610 launches in late May.

The raise comes at the expense of iOS and Android, and Symbian’s loss of share has practically stopped

Looking at the UK, progress is very slow but there is growth. Personal sighting of Lumias is still a rarity, and adverts unfortunately are few.

Things may unfortunately get more difficult for Nokia with this early announcement of  WP8. It might help them later as more devs get interested in the platform (more devs, more apps, more platform interest, more users, more devs? etc?) but the time now up until Nokia announces WP8 Lumia is going to be extremely challenging. Q3 will be much harder than I imagined.
