Intense emotional response to Lumia 900 reviews bodes well for sales


This is just a quick note to say that I think Nokia's unique hardware and the marketing effort they've made seem to have been an excellent job.

People who do not own and have never used Lumia 900s have been posting in droves to claim that The Verge is "biased" for giving this device a mediocre review score. Some have been citing other reviews as evidence even when those reviews agree in large part with the opinions of The Verge.

This powerful response, I think, means that Nokia and Microsoft have succeeded in creating an emotional connection to their product. If they have played their cards right, it will transfer into sales.

For those hoping the Lumia will sell, this bodes well.
