The mighty Nokia Lumia has strike a new milestone -- more than 4 million Lumias has already been in the last quarter. It is still a pittance compared to the 35.1 million iPhones Apple sold in its last quarter.
The figure is still the encouraging one - it is the double the amount of units sold by Nokia in the Q1 and percentage of growth is still striving to the top.
The company is also banking on a boost from Windows 8, which will run on Lumia. Mircrosoft is expected to make the "RTM" (Release of Manufacturing) version of that OS available in the first week of August.
Microsoft has faced a mere change in the trends of smartphones which were based on windows OS - which lead to the 0.4% less sell smartphones powered by Microsoft since the beginning of the year according to a report by comscore MobiLens.
"Nokia is taking action to manage through this transition period," CEO Stephen Elop said in a statement.
Investors seem to have been pleasantly surprised by the news, sending the company's stock up more than 13% in pre-market trading.
It will be interesting to see if Nokia can increase the sales of their Lumia Windows Phone devices in quarter three, as Microsoft is expected to launch Windows Phone 8 later this year, which could make consumers hold of buying one of Nokia's Lumia devices until the new Windows 8 models are unveiled.
