Nokia Beats Apple and Android In Shipment of Smartphones

September 14, 2010

Nokia’s annual convention, the Nokia World 2010 is on a full swing today in London, with the Finnish mobile giant unwrapping surprises from its goodie bag. Amongst all the other announcements from new phones to Ovi Store updates, Angry Birds and new Nokia browser, the company also startled the audience by revealing some interesting shipment statistics for its smartphones, across the globe.

So all those who thought Nokia  had lost the smartphone game and needed to overhaul its product lineup, might want to think again. According to the company, Nokia moves around 260,000 smartphones a day, pretty ahead of the two competitors it has always been accused of losing to. If some recent stats are to be believed, Apple ships somewhere around 80,000 iPhones per day, and Android activate 200,000 devices per day.

So now you can imagine Nokia grinning at your face for talking foul about it.

Besides, another interesting announcement from the stage comes about the launch of new C6 and C7 Symbian^3 handsets by the company.

Nokia C6 features an 8 megapixel camera and a 3.2-inch AMOLED screen with all-new ClearBlack Display (CBD) technology and has been priced at $334. Nokia C7 on the other hand gets a 3.5-inch (also AMOLED), more memory and a stainless steel body, which  Anssi Vanjoki touts as the sleekest device in the world. The model has been priced at $430. Both handsets are capable of rec0rding pixel-heavy 720p video .

Got something to say?
