According to a Finland research company, Nokia has sold between 3.5 and 4 million N8 smartphones. The research also mentions that the N8 is a top-selling phone in Finland, India, Malaysia and UAE.
Nokia previously stated that the N8 cameraphone flagship is the company's most pre-ordered phone ever. Despite that impressive claim we were never given specific numbers.
We still don't have any official confirmation, but if the Finland research company Inderes Oy is to be trusted, nearly 4 million users bought the N8. We suppose the popularity in the listed countries is expected, because Nokia is the biggest player on those markets by a country mile.
Those early sales are certainly encouraging, but we'll have to wait until the Holiday season shopping spree ends and Nokia publishes its Q4 results, before judging the N8 market success.
