I still can't figure out why we haven't seen this blown up in the press, considering all the sensationalistic, link baiting, desperate headlines surrounding Nokia lately.
From another thread, I wrote: "That's with AT&T's biggest product launch effort ever, $100 rebates for the first month of buyers due to a software glitch, national commercials with Chris Parnell in 'the beta test is over' and celebrity backed events like the Times Square Minaj(?) concert promo."
I'll add AT&T's promise to educate sales staff on Lumias and WP, the worldwide 'smoked by windows phone contests', unprecedented Lumia 900 giveaways to developers and blogoshere, generally great reviews from the tech community and big websites, off the chart 5-star ratings at Amazon with constant top sales ranks. On top of all that, the Lumia 900 is an excellent phone that seems easy to like.
Despite all that, less than 200,000 Lumia 900s sold in Q2. I'm not a Nokia bear because Lumia isn't good enough, I'm a Nokia bear despite that it _is_ good enough.
What kind of marketing powder remains in the keg for Nokia and MSFT to pull off another major launch before the end of the year?
