series40Janne managed to get a screenshot showing statcounter racing above everyone else.

In what seems to be further proof of Nokia Xpress Browser proxy server location (Finland), Series 40 has now actually overtaken EVERYONE in Finnish daily StatCounter statistics standing at 30+% of Finnish StatCounter measured web traffic, leaving Android and iOS in the 24% range, Windows Phone aka Lumia in the 14% range and Symbian dropping below 4%.


– Janne

Last 30 days show a huge drop for iOS and Android as well as a drop for WP and Symbian as S40 rockets.

    Like Janne said it looks like the servers are in Finland. S40 hasn’t been selling exactly that great.

      I think the more positive facts are that Android and IOS usage took a dive , which should mean either Tablets aren’t included in this Counter (Which makes sense since its the perfect browsing medium.
      Or that Some progress is being made on other fronts.
      BTW Do you have any stats about S40’s performance?.

    • Janne

      Indeed, I am definitely *not* suggesting Series 40 sells like that in Finland. 😉 Although I’m pretty sure Series 40 actually sells okay in Finland, but mostly to users that won’t use web on those devices at all, so these numbers are 99% Xpress Browser proxy requests from RoW.

      This is more an interesting anomaly type of post, than anything beyond that. Though, interesting to see the Series 40 numbers jump up in two waves like that, first some time ago and now again very recently. I wonder what is causing that.

    Some has spread roumors that S40 in fact is a “secret” MeeGo or “hidden” Meltemi. And as this looks like MeeGo some have believed in conspiracy theory. Moreover S40 much more comfortable and have less problems then other Nokia smartphones. many say S40 is the most practical smartphone series from Nokia currently. Ans much more competitive then others. MeeGo/Mltemi rulezz 😀

      “S40 in fact is a “secret” MeeGo or “hidden” Meltemi” – how to interpret this?

  • dss

    Price is the most important sales factor.. S40 phones are much cheaper than the other ones mentions, hence, more sales.

    If phones weren’t heavily subsidized here in the US, who would be buying $600 phones ? Very few people..

    • Janne

      Just to clarify, this is not what Series 40 jump in Finland is likely telling us. It is Xpress Browser proxy servers and download requests from emerging markets to Finland that are the likely cause, rather than jumping Series 40 sales in Finland.

      • Grendell

        Nice to see Nokia making news in emerging markets then. Hopefully they’ll do even better when the new designs come out. Nokia used to rule pretty much everywhere but Japan and the US.

    Thank you Asha

    Does this include the Nokia Xpress app use on Windows? I don’t use anything else.

    • Janne

      No idea…
