Nokia sells 3.5 - 4 million N8s

The Nokia N8, who wouldn't buy this beast? The first penta-band smartphone,the first smartphone to pack a 12 MP camera, and the first Symbian^3 device is something that at least 3.5 million people are willing to pay for. Well, is you really look at it on the bright side the Nokia N8 isn't a bad phone after all amidst the reviews it received that are more inclined into the negative things of the smartphone. Oh well, at the end of the day it's the people's decision and preference that will always win, regardless the comments, reviews and whatnots the device gets.

According to a research firm Inderes (Finnish equity research firm), Nokia have already shipped 3.5 - 4 million units of the Nokia N8. This supports Nokia's statement that they have received a record of the most online pre-orders of the device. Although, Nokia did not provide any reports of how much N8s they have really sold and shipped. The smartphone is popular in some markets like Malaysia, India and of course, in Finland but it is really not quite at par with how popular the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S is globally. Nevertheless, the report that Inderes posted is quite promising for the company, since they have really struggled in the smartphone market today.
