PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia just posted its quarterly results - including shipped devices - and it's not looking good. Massive losses, sales dropping, and no growth in Lumia sales in the US. The company is losing money hand-over-fist, and with Windows Phone 8 still months away, the company warns the next quarter will be just as bad.

They also (or foremost) compete against other WP8 resellers. Do we have numbers from Samsung and HTC meanwhile? Not yet I think. If we believe in comCast and Nielsens then both, every of them, sold more WP7 devices then Nokia. That was when most already dropped out of WP7 and only those 3 left. With WP8 there will be more competition and others may invest into there WP8 devices too (with more resources and money on hand). Nokia needs to hurry up to compete against the other WP8 resellers, against Android and against iphone. I think it becomes more difficult to get a decent share even if the WP8 share is bigger then the WP7 share was/is.

I think too that WP8 makes not much differences for Nokia. It will make for Microsoft but Nokia will have a hard time to ever get back where they stand at when Elop took over. When they reach more then 10% then its already very good. I doubt they will.
