Nokia's multi-million efforts to push its Windows Phone based Lumia 800 still hasn't resulted in strong holiday sales, according to the latest UK stats, with Apple's iPhone continuing to dominate the mobile market.

"Youth are pretty much fed up with iPhones" Niels Munksgaard, director of Portfolio, Product Marketing & Sales at Nokia Entertainment Global told Pocket-lint, "everyone has the iPhone."
