37 million Windows Phone-based Nokia handsets could be sold this year

Nokia. Microsoft. Windows Phone. 2012. This is all you need to know if you want to believe the numbers Morgan Stanley expect Nokia to ship this year, based on Windows Phone devices alone. They expect Nokia's new Windows Phones to sell 37 million units this year, with that number ballooning to 64 million units next year.

Morgan Stanley's estimates for HTC's Windows Phone-based handsets is actually quite the number, too. They estimate 43 million this year and 74 million next year. Considering these are just estimates, I can't see it happening, but Nokia and HTC are two powerhouse companies, so who knows. I just see iOS and Android fighting them too much to sell phones in those types of numbers.

Microsoft have a lot of work cut out for them this year, but they seem to be in their stride now. It should be interesting to see what they do this year against Android 4.0 and if there's a release of iOS 6 sometime later this year. We should see great things from all three companies.
