Nokia: Over 7 million Lumia devices sold Today during their joint press conference, Nokia unveiled some interesting figures relating to their Lumia devices.
The company says it has sold 7 million so far, on a global basis, selling the phones in 54 markets and through 130 operators.

As it has been for a decade, the U.S. proved to be a difficult sell for the company, with Nokia only shipping 600,000 handsets there in the last quarter. By comparison, Apple sold over 25 million iPhones in the last quarter and Samsung sold over 45 million smartphones.

Growth was strong, however, with Nokia selling 4 million in the last quarter, up from about 1 million in the quarter before it.

Today, the company also launched its first Windows Phone 8 devices, the Lumia 820 and 920, which expect to sell well this year when Microsoft launches its new operating system.
