Analysts: Nokia has shipped 1.3 million Lumia 800s so far. MaybeWe'd all love to know just how well Nokia's Windows Phone makeover is going, but we still don't have anything even approaching an official sales figure to go on so far.

That should change in a couple of days time when Nokia announces its latest financials, but in the meantime Bloomberg has pooled together a group of analysts and averaged their estimates to come up with a figure: 1.3 million.

Before we go any further, though, it might be worth taking a closer look at the maths here. A total of 22 analysts were consulted, and the figures given ranged between 800,000 and 2 million – which we reckon says more about analysts than the Nokia Lumia 800.

And better still, that's for units shipped, rather than units sold, making things even more murky as in the end it's as much a measure of how many products a company is expecting to sell, rather than how many the public has actually bought.

In the end we'll be pretty surprised if Lumia 800 sales have broken a million so far – but hopefully we'll have the answer this week.

So basically, no-one (bar Nokia), really knows?

shipped = we have no f*cking clue how many were sold, and if we knew we wouldn't say, anyway ;)
The Nokia N8 sold more units in its first quarter than all WP7 devices in the last 3 months combined. Go figure, Stephen ;)
