Nokia N900 Not Doing Too Good Sells Just 100,000 in 5 Months

It appears that the bastion of Nokia flagship-ness, the Maemo packing Nokia N900 smartphone isn’t as popular as expected as apparently the device has only sold 100,000 handsets since its release some five months ago.

According to an article by Andrew over on Fonehome, even though during the Open Mobile Summit, Nokia;s Alberto Torres stated that “sales have substantially exceeded expectations,” the figures show that the Nokia n900 hasn’t proved to be a major contender against rival smartphones.

According to the source article over on Reuters, in the first three months of this year the iPhone sold 8.75 million units in just over half the time it took Nokia to shift 100,000 Nokia N900 units.

The article also takes a look at why the Nokia N900 hasn’t proved popular, giving the reasons of the smartphone not holding the same sleekness associated with top line handsets along with running the now obsolete Maemo 5 OS which has been shelved due to Nokia collaboration with Intel to deliver the MeeGO OS.

  1. This story has already been proven false by Nokia. The n900 sold 100,000 units in 5 WEEKS not 5 months. And its well known the n900 was marketed toward the techie/geek, not the main stream consumer. So in actuality the sales are quite good.
