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 sold 150M phones, 10m where smartphones, and most of those were old Symbian and MeeGo phones

Not MeeGo, there were few made (something like at most ~200k total, IIRC; Nokia never revealed exactly, but then they didn't ever reveal exact individual handset numbers), they most likely didn't even recoup the costs sunk into Maemo/Meego project over more than half a decade (think about it for a second, about its rate of progress).
And those Symbians have very low average selling price, they are essentially in the segment of "feature phone" LG Cookie, Samsung Star, or the likes.
