Nokia claims 5800 XpressMusic is top UK performer
Nokia chief executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has seen strong demand in every country where it has been launched.
In Q1 the 5800 XpressMusic (pictured) was Nokia’s top revenue and gross margin generating product, and was the number one volume and value product in the UK. It is also the top MP3 player in this country.
A Nokia spokesperson said: ‘Despite some capacity constraints, we shipped approximately 2.6 million units in Q1 as the product ramped up globally.
Today, all sales channels are open, we have increased capacity, and we are shipping the device at a rate of more than one million units per month.’
