PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless How many N9's did Nokia sell, and how many Lumias did Nokia sell? It's an interesting thing to ponder, because estimates by Tomi T. Ahonen seem to indicate that, despite decidedly undermarketing the thing, the N9 faired considerably better in the marketplace than the Lumia did.

Nokia panicked. It had a R&D budget that was 5 times that of apple on year and still loosing smarphone market share.
The company just did not have the faith, budget and maybe even the stomach anymore.
Microsoft was probably their best bet to continue business as usual. It already gave them $1 billion last year and $250 million not long ago. They're so encumbered by MS right now that quitting the partnership might very well bankrupt them. There just isn't any turning back now.
I was sceptical but I think they will 2012 Tango release with the Nokia Windows 7 lower-priced budget smartphones will push up sales.
