Nokia’s top smartphone may not have lived up to its hype and expectations but it wasn’t a complete flop. The Nokia Lumia 900 actually did well enough to keep Nokia afloat and competitive amongst all of the other top smartphones available on the market.

Although statistics show that the Nokia Lumia 900 did well in its sales, it did not do as well as had been expected by most people. It was very hyped and therefore sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 started out well but then the sales slowly went down and the hype disappeared. This hype and enthusiasm was shown by AT&T who were originally excited about the Nokia Lumia 900 but after sales began they became quite about the Nokia Lumia 900 and didn’t have much to say about it.

The sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 were originally quite significant as the Nokia Lumia 900 was selling better than all other smartphones except for the iPhone 4 during its first month of sales and sold just as well as the iPhone 4S at the same time of sales. Sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 then began to drop off after this time and it started to sell less than other smartphones which were running on Windows and were much older. However, all of the sales data that has been collated for the Nokia Lumia 900 has been based on online sales only and has not incorporated store sales.

It is thought that the reason why the Nokia Lumia 900 did not make as much of an impression on buyers as was expected is because it did not capitalize on the fact that it was a Windows smartphone, as opposed to being one of the more well known Apple or Google smartphones. Even though it did not leave much of an impression on many smartphone users it did not do badly at all as it still stayed as a competitor within the smartphone industry. It is unknown yet whether this will be enough to make the Nokia Lumia 900 a headliner with any U.S carrier now due to this. It is said that the competition of the other top smartphones on the market played a part in the sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 and this is why it did not meet its expectations in the end, even though it had been hyped so much.

It is believed that the next Windows smartphone will be available for sale later this year, which will increase access to Windows run smartphones. Although the Nokia Lumia 900 did not make much of an impact on consumers and did not sell as well as hoped, it was a steady seller and it has paved the way for newer versions of Windows run smartphones in the future, which could change the industry and open up more options for smartphone consumers. These smartphones will be run on Windows 8, which is highly anticipated by many consumers. On July 15th AT&T will be selling the pink version of the Nokia Lumia 900.
