Wochit 1:02 mins

Nokia sold fewer handset than expected in the second quarter. The company said it shipped 7.4 million Lumia smartphones which were fewer than the 8.1 million units analysts anticipated. Nokia is scheduled to report its spring quarter ? and the stakes are very high. The substantial spring revenue weakness from BlackBerry and HTC implies that many second-tier brands are now in serious trouble with their brand new product launches. Nokia could give its smartphones like the Lumia 1020 a Bluetooth boost, from version 3.0 of the wireless technology to Bluetooth 4.0. According to sources cited by The Verge, the Finnish phone maker is readying a software update that will sweep many of its higher-end Lumia devices, turning on Bluetooth 4.0 capability that resides within the chipset.
