Nokia bullish on N900: sales substantially above expectations

A spokesman for Nokia, the world’s top cellphone maker, declined to comment on the sales number, saying the company was pleased with sales, but an executive was more bullish.

“Sales have substantially exceeded expectations,” Alberto Torres, head of Nokia’s solutions business, told the Open Mobile Summit trade conference in London this week.

If Alberto Torres’ expectation for a flagship product is substantially less than 100k for a launch quarter, I wonder what disappoints him.
