Once an Android phone user switches to WP8, they will never go back. Android is horrible. Memory management stinks. Too many flavors running around. It is ripe for a huge security fail. Take a look at the reviews of the Lumia 810 on T-Mobile's website. Lots of happy users.
Analysts are like the media talking heads. They are a bunch of cowardly lemmings. I love it when a company beats the street. It is another example of how truly uninformed analysts are. If Nokia performs well for 2-3 consecutive quarters, they will all enthusiastically jump on the bandwagon and share their wisdom with we uninformed peons of investing.
How do you sell 8 mill per quarter? 1,000 phones at a time doesn't hurt. This post is also an excellent example of why Windows Phone 8 is superior to BB10, iOS and Android in a corporate environment. It will encourage other IT directors to move in the same direction.
Store managers have access to internal sales quota figures. It's how they know which sales people they need to encourage and which need to be praised.. These figures are up to the second since they are tied into the point-of-sale system.
