The Nokia brand has been a stellar one to say the least. It has dominated the smartphone market over a decade ago. Today’s it’s owned by a new banner and is finding lost ground alongside brands such as BlackBerry. Up until now, the Nokia fan community seems to have helped the brand get on to a good start.

Folks at NokiaPowerUser have been observant enough to notice the download numbers for the Nokia Mobile Support App on the Play Store. Come to think of it, it is a very rudimentary way of gauging how many active Nokia Android smartphones are in the market right now. Despite being a base level means of gauging the number of active devices, the download number of the app is still a figure that is directly proportional to the number of active Nokia Android smartphones.

The current download numbers indicated on the Play Store stand at between 100,000 and 500,000. The lower end reference would be a good place to start the calculations. Earlier this year, when Nokia launched the Nokia 6 smartphone, and it went on sale, it ran out of stock in under a minute.
For a company that has been the market leader at one point in tech history, and then having to start afresh, this development signals a return to active consideration, and also ground for greater confidence. As the NokiaPowerUser report points out, there’s good reason to assume that the sales of Nokia phones are only higher than a million considering that the Play Store is restricted in China.

Recently in an interview with Nokiateca, Pekka Rantala, Chief Marketing Officer of Nokia, as quoted by Forbes said, they’re really happy about the sales, and have “been selling already millions of Nokia smartphones and tens of millions when it comes to basic Nokia phones.”
