AT&T CEO says Lumia devices are selling well

The world has eyes on Nokia and Microsoft with Windows Phone 8, but so far no word has been released about how well either is doing. AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega has shed a bit of light on the company’s exclusive deal with Nokia however, stating that 6.4 million smartphones have been sold in only two months.

The kicker here is that number isn’t divided up by operating system, so the lion’s share of that number most likely belongs to the iPhone 5 launch. However, he went on to say that he’s “really excited” about Windows phone sales numbers and that inventory has remained tight for Lumia phones.

Only time will tell what the true numbers have been for Lumia sales since the WP8 devices debuted just a few weeks ago, but we’re betting Nokia will see more WP8 devices moved than WP7 when the Lumia 900 launched earlier this year.


  • Windows Phone 8 will be the true test for not only Nokia, but Windows Phone in general IMO. As mature as it is now, it’s time for growth and adoption to happen. If it can’t crack more than a few percentage points of market share by mid 2013 then it’s pretty much over.
