They have the Lumia 520 and you are quite right, the battery life is nice indeed :)

I wish Nokia made Android phones as well, they deserve a comeback. I always liked their "dumb" phones in the past... wish they made a more successful transition to smartphones to give Samsung and HTC some much needed competition!

There more models made by Nokia that Koodo can add at his lineup such as Nokia Lumia 620/710/800/900/920

Offering the 620 alongside the 520 doesn't make sense in my opinion. The 710/800/900 are obsolete and discontinued. The 920 would be nice, but it's exclusive to Rogers. Koodo could still opt for the 720, 820, or 925.

From my experience working in retail in the past, Nokia phones haven't done all that great here in Canada. I don't think they have had a smart phone that has truly performed sales wise if you compare it to some of the big 3 makers like Samsung, HTC and LG. Their new ones are really nice phones but there are still a lot of people who don't know about a Windows phone.

Even great phones can be doomed just because people don't know or trust the name as much. I think the LG Nexus 4 is a perfect example of that, its a more powerful phone than the S3 at a lot lower price, but still doesn't sell like the Samsungs do. Scratch of LG and put a Samsung logo there and the Nexus 4 would probably sell a lot more.

The N95 was a hit here in Canada. But that was in the pre-iPhone smartphone world.

But, HTC and LG are hardly sales leaders in anything and only Samsung has had success with Android because they actually invested in marketing. Nokia is actually a part of the "big 3" along with Samsung and Apple. I don't know where you got HTC and LG from:

From being in retail selling them. I know when Koodo first launched the LG Optimus One it sold like crazy. And when I say HTC Im talking about things like the HTC One. I would agree with HTC and LG not being sales leaders, but they have done relatively well considering their lack of marketing.

And from the experience at my store the N95 didn't sell all that much. And it was the same at most of the stores I talked to. Maybe it was different in my region but that was my thoughts. Even if it did sell well that was many many years ago.

Personal experience isn't a great source in my opinion.

Most of my friends have Nokia, BB10, or Huawei phones. So from, personal experience I would deduce that these are the best sellers which is far from the truth.

LG and HTC haven't fared any better than Nokia, that's all I'm saying.

Hey Mr. KAM,

Thanks for your idea! I'll let our product team know. As always, we can’t comment on new phones, rate plans or services until they’re launched. If there are any new changes, we’ll announce it either here, Facebook or koodomobile.com.
