From an article about Nokia on OS News....
Feature phones sales are decreasing rapidly, smartphone sales have collapsed, and Windows Phone has - so far - proven to be the wrong bet. Ponder on this figure: in total WP7 and WP8 combined, Nokia only sold 19.9 million Lumia phones. That's it. To put this into perspective: in the first quarter Nokia sold Lumia devices (Q3 2011), Nokia still sold close to 20 million Symbian devices. In other words, Nokia was pumping out more Symbian phones per quarter in 2011 than it has sold Lumia phones in total to date.
There is simply no way to spin this.
This is also terrible news for Microsoft. If Nokia only sold 19.9 million WP7/8 devices in total, that means the total sales for Windows Phone will be round and about 25 million tops, and even in the last quarter, 1/3 of WP sales were old, outdated and non-upgradeable Windows Phone 7 devices. As much as I like Windows Phone, we simply have to face the music, be honest, and just come out and say it: Windows Phone is a dud
Sentiment: Strong Sell
poor phands down to his last neuron- trys to make obsolete news about Nokia stand up as the truth- looks to me phands like the I turds and the droid turds are in deep doodoo and have been losing market share to WP8 phones for some time. So what do you plan to do when WP8 gets up to 50% or more of the market?? Have you laid in a supply of cyanide capsules?? even a sharp razor blade will do-- so I guess its going to be adios pretty soon for you eh
