PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Shares in Nokia plunged 17% after the mobile phone giant surprised investors by saying it expected to make losses in the first half of 2012. The Finnish company said competition in the industry had led to lower sales particularly in India, the Middle East, Africa and China. Nokia had previously expected to break even in the first quarter." And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, the Lumia 900 is suffering from a software flaw, and the company has started offering $100 in compensation. Not a good start for such an important flagship device.

Also let me address the disingenuous piece which purportedly breaks down N9 sales.

First off, there are no Q4 Symbian numbers, and the best they can do is try to extrapolate from Q3 numbers which is at best foolish because they arrive there by subtracting Lumias SOLD from Smart phones SHIPPED.

The source could be overstating N9 sales by an order of a magnitude by doing such a bone headed comparison. It is supremely misleading, and while I'm sure you desperately want it to be true, you're still wrong.

Canalys, who I trust more that Meltemiblog(sorry) estimates only 600k N9s for Q4 and 1.2 million Lumias. (http://www.canalys.com/newsroom/smart-phones-overtake-client-pcs-20...).

Lumia outselling N9 2:1 is a dramatically different story than N9 outselling Lumia 3:1 or some ridiculous bullshit.
