    The following numbers are for AT&T and I'm focusing on comparing Lumia to iPhone.

    5.1 million smartphones

    3.7 million iPhones

    1.4 million non-iPhones

    Analyst estimate of Nokia Lumia 900 sales on AT&T: 330,000 - 360,000

    23.57% (assuming low target of 330,000 Lumia's) of all non-iPhone sales went to the Lumia in this quarter. I guess that not bad compared to other devices. Of the remaining 1.07 Million phones, there are a number of popular models like the Skyrocket, Note, Atrix 2, Galaxy 2, One X, Titan, Titan II, Focus S, Focus Flash, and Focus 2... so against all of those, this potentially took the number 1 spot for the quarter. Still iPhone is the gold standard, let's guess how they managed.

    Almost a quarter of non-iPhones, its really quite good really, especially after considering the competition

    It's actually amazing how (on both AT&T and Verizon) 3/4 of all the smart phones sold are iPhones.

    I know this is a WP forum, but damn, the iPhone is on its way to becoming a synonym for smartphone, like Xerox as short hand for 'photocopy' or 'Kleenex' for 'a tissue'. You can even see it in most non-phone ads.

    It's already that way for most "non-tech" people. Almost everyone in my family uses "iphone" instead of "cell phone." Similar to "ipod" for any mp3/music player.

    The other problem is how the iphone is considered the gold standard. One of my uncle's asked what phone I had, and when he found out it was $99 he said "**** for just $100 more I can get the iphone can't I?"
