PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has just sent out a few preliminary comments about the company's performance during the fourth quarter of 2012. Nokia's figures are a good indicator for how well Windows Phone 8 is doing, and, in all honesty, I'm not exactly blown away. Apparently, neither was Nokia itself, since the company decided to redefine their Asha phones from feature phone to smartphone to prop up their smartphone sales figures.

The main objective is to become profitable. Nokia doesn't have to draw the same number of users as Android or iOS; it just has to become profitable for the company to succeed. And with the last two reports, it is clear that their approach is working. And analysts agree that things are moving in the right direction. 4.4 million Lumias is a big deal, and WP8 hasn't even been available for a full quarter yet.
