The Financial Times has been given a glimpse at a GfK report containing sales data from UK mobile networks for the four-week period ending December 9.
Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 4S is top of the list with almost 25% of all sales. “Siri, why is the iPhone 4S so bloomin’ popular?” And heck, the older iPhones are in there too.
According to the Financial Times, “five versions” of the iPhone appear in the top 15 handsets for the first week of December. Presumably that’ll be the 8GB iPhone 4, 8GB iPhone 3G, and the three iPhone 4S offerings.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is reportedly still selling well, despite being several months old and having stiff competition from Sammo’s own Galaxy Nexus - the 4.65in Ice Cream Sandwich-rockin' beast.
There was also good news for Canadian manufacturer RIM (shock horror), as no less than three BlackBerry Curve variants appeared in the top 10 for the first week of December. Somewhat surprisingly, the BlackBerry Bold Touch didn’t fare quite so well.
Finally, the biggest disappointment was probably the Nokia Lumia 800, which has been heralded - mostly by Stephen Elop - as the saviour of Windows Phone 7. It reportedly failed to break the top 10 in its first weeks on sale. Eek.
