Nokia Lumia 800 Flying Off Shelves: Store Clerks Sound OffDecember 5, 2011 No Comments
Nokia has a site dedicated to customer reactions from store clerks selling the Lumia 800 running Windows Phone. Some of these posts are very insightful and really show how well Nokia has done with designing and promoting the device. Take a look at a few entries…
- Joe Moody (Orange)
“This phone is the best phone out there by far. I have manged to switch 15 customers within a week to pre order the Lumia, I love the device so much I can’t wait to get one when I’m due a new phone, the customers that are interested in apple iPhones or galaxy s 2 I manage to persuade some to go for a Lumia!”
- Iain McLaren (Carphone Warehouse
The Lumia is flying off the shelves, especially from one who has really taken the training on board and pitching them to everyone. The main things that are selling the phone are the design, superb screen and the way the social networks are integrated into the phone OS so don’t need to keep switching apps and all the messages are compiled into one thread.
From a standing start, Nokia have really grabbed people’s attention with the Lumia and the advertising is starting to pay off as people are coming in and asking about the handset, and asking to upgrade to it.

I lose track of the number of people who I speak to who want an iPhone. Well, at least they think they do. It’s amazing how, once people have played with a Lumia for a minute or two, they lose all desire for anything Appley.
As one lady put to me… “the iPhone doesn’t come in blue – it won’t match my handbag”.
Lumia – a bag of win
