Nokia shipped 4 million units of N8 ?

There is an unconfirmed report that Nokia has managed to ship close to 4 million units of the N8 smartphone since launch according to Finnish research firm Inderes. They are estimating the shipments at 3.5 – 4 mn units

The report also talks about the N8 being a success in India, Finland, United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. Close competitors for the 12Megapixel Camera phone were the Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Desire.

Seems like the company arrived at this estimate using a variety of factors such as data from chipmakers, job figures at factories, online search trends and general buzz surrounding the handset.

    I bought Nokia N8 on 7the Dec’10 . The battery backup was a huge disappointment . And on 16th Dec,10 i.e in just 9 days the camera key stopped responding. A brand new handset worth Rs.24000 went bad just in 9 days of purchase. Went to Nokia… care deposited my handset for the repairs/ replacement . They told me that I’ll get my handset back in 7 days ,,, i called nokia care they told me i’ll get it back in 10days, called them yesterday now they are telling me it might take another 7 days or more , when I asked for a estimated date they declined. THIS IS WHAT NOKIA IS DOING WITH THE CUSTOMERS. JUST GIVING A RUNAROUND. This is my 14th Nokia handset and now I feel this has to be the last one. The build quality of the handset is disappointing, the hardware quality is bad. NOKIA U NEED TO DO SOMETHING or you gonna further lose the market share………. U are losing your years old LOYAL customers with such bad service and product
