Lumia 900 Sales Predictions (Ambivalent Here)
This article says that if Nokia manages a million units it will be an excellent start.
This one says that Nokia can only hope to sell about 1.5 million units, although they arrive at that figure by mere estimates.
AT&T has about 2200 stores in the US according to a report (I could not verify how current this info is though). Let's slash the stores to 2100 to estimate the worst. According to reports on multiple sites, forums and at&t employees commenting on tech sites most stores seem to have about 15-20 Lumias as their stock and sell them out in a day or so. This means each store can sell about say (15 units*5) 75 weekly store-wide and Nokia can manage (2100 stores*75units) 157500 weekly nation-wide. This translates to 630,000 phones a month if the sales momentum and promotion keep up. Bear in mind that this does not include Lumia 900 sales on Rogers in Canada or orders through Amazon (which seem to be doing really well). Nor does it include other Lumias selling around the world. Do you think the 900 can manage a million in one month, or is this just the initial demand that will wane in a week or two? Also tell me if there are other places the 900 is being sold and if I miscalculated.
