In their end of year report (http://www.nokia.com/2004/Q4/index.html) Nokia has said they've regained the market share lost during 2004. They are now back above the 30% mark, which is twice the share of their nearest competitor Motorola. Profits were slightly down (perhaps because of recent price cuts) but sales set records over the Christmas period hence the rise in market share. In the report on their multimedia division it says "Nokia had cumulatively sold 1.3 million N-Gage devices", the first official statement since their "1 million" announcement in September. It's slightly less than the 1.5 million mentioned by Vir2L, but still shows the QD outselling the original model very quickly. On a side note, N-gage QDs are now on the market in China.
