Nokia N900 and Nokia 5530 in Google’s top 5 most searched consumer electronics 2010.

Mashable reported yesterday that from Google’s zeitgeist (report on most searched terms) that in the consumer electronics category, TWO of the top 5 were the Nokia N900 (5th) and Nokia 5530 (3rd). First place was the iPad, 2nd iPhone 4 and 4th was HTC Evo 4G.

Not N8 huh? After all the fuss, leaks, drama, reviews?

Thanks for the heads up Alan!

    I know this is a fanblog and many of you consider critical remarks as trolling but IMHO this news just begs 2 questions:
    Why wasn’t the N900 more successful if the interest was that big? I’d even say unbelievably big, I still cannot believe it (the N900 always was a geek product)
    And why didn’t Nokia build on this interest but steered the project towards ANOTHER eternal waiting thing?
    Oh boy, how excited was I about the N900, I only didn’t get it because Ovi maps wasn’t available and it was slightly too big for my pocket, but I would have jumped at a successor.
    Now go on and flame me or present your thoughts and lets have a civilised discussion.

      The answer to your questions is, simply, that everyone is massively misinterpreting the numbers, see my comment below.

      I don’t know why other people didn’t buy N900, but I do know why I didn’t and it’s a reason you mention too: Ovi Maps or the lack of proper version of it. I still don’t understand why Nokia screwed the navigation part in N900.

        According to my guesstimates people didn’t buy the N900 cause after 1-2 months of releasing the super-phone Nokia announced meamo as a dead-end and meego as the future. Fast forward 12 months later we haven’t seen any actual meego phones from Nokia yet.
        Well i’m complaining cause I both NOK shares upon N900’s release and quickly sold them when I sensed blind executives running in wrong directions… But now, hey now seems like a good time to pick up some NOKs.

    I think these numbers are wrong somehow. If you go to Google Insights and compare interest in n900 and n8, n8 is WAAAAAAY in advance, as you’d expect.

    This article is misinterpreting the numbers, though that may well be Google’s fault for how it presents them.

    Proof: (I’m not sure how to embed a chart so here goes…): http://www.google.com/insights/search/#q=n8%2Cn900&date=1%2F2010%2012m&cmpt=q

    If you log in with your google account, it will show numbers, and if you untick the “news headlines” box top right of the graph you’ll see a bigger graph.

    Here’s HTC evo vs N8, again N8 is WAAAAAAY higher: http://www.google.com/insights/search/#q=n8%2Chtc%20evo&date=1%2F2010%2012m&cmpt=q

    What’s more, these figures merely represent Google searches. It does not translate into actual public interest, or what people actually buy in a store or sign up to, or searches done via other search engines, so there is not a direct correlation with implied or actual success of a phone, platform or whatever.

    Remember, there are lies, damned lies and statistics 🙂

    I don’t give a damn to these statistics. Public opinion is thousands times more valuable than these IMHO. To see the true picture, check GSMArena. N8 is on the top of interest chart since launch. It’s also broken all records in page-views in their site.

    That is exactly why I created a website surrounding that topic! ;D
