It looks like Nokia is making some progress in getting people to try their Lumia line of Windows Phone-powered smartphones, at least in their native country. According to Es Phoneblog, two Finnish phone carriers have released their sales results for the month of February 2012 and both show that the Nokia Lumia 800 was the best selling phone for that month.
One phone carrier, Elisa, shows that the Lumia 800 was number one for both consumers and for businesses in February. Apples iPhone 4S was number two in sales for consumers in February. Another wireless carrier in Finland, DNA, also shows the Lumia 800 on top of consumer sales for February, again beating out the Apple iPhone 4S.
While the Lumia 800 launched in other parts of Europe back in November, the smartphone was only launched in Finland on February 1.
The Lumia 710, which launched in Finland in mid-February, came in at number nine for DNAs list of best selling smartphones for February and in the 12th position in Elisas consumer and business sales list.
Of course, Nokia does have something of a home field advantage when it comes to selling its own smartphones in Finland. However, with the Lumia 900 about to land State side, things should be on the up and up for the vendor.
