In November, Nokia launched its latest Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 920. The device quickly became a huge commercial success, along with receiving widespread critical acclaim. After Nokia has been largely unable to compete with the likes of manufacturers like Samsung and Apple over the last couple of years, the Lumia 920 looks like it could be the phone to turn things around for the Finnish manufacturer.
There are continuing reports of Lumia 920 handsets selling out in a number of countries, along with extremely high pre-order demand in markets where the phone is yet to be launched. As a result of its huge demand, Nokia’s production facilities in Asia have even been unable to fulfil many orders placed by retailers.
While the Lumia 920 and its mid range Lumia 820 counterpart have become popular choices in a short space of time, last year’s Lumia 800 is also enjoying a resurge in popularity, particularly in Finland. Elisa, if one of the biggest mobile network operators in Finland has recently released its sales reports for 2012, according to NokiaPowerUser. This shows that the Nokia Lumia 800 was the most popular phone on the network for private customers throughout 2012, and the second most popular for its business customers.

This is not the first time that an older smartphone model has seen a resurge in popularity following the launch of a newer version. After the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 launched last year, a number of retailers and networks decided to reduce the prices of Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4S deals to provide a more affordable alternative to the expensive new handsets. As a result, the older models once again became very popular, and it appears that this has also been the case of the Nokia Lumia 800 in Finland.
As you may expect, the Lumia 920 has also been a very popular choice in Finland. Despite only being launched in November, it became the network’s third bestseller for private customers, and the number one choice for business customers throughout 2012.
