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.

You're conveniently picking the epoch between Q3 and Q4 to make your "trend" claim work. Lumia's shipments in 2012 have been all over the map, they have gone up and down from quarter to quarter in 2012: 2.0M in Q1, 4.0 in Q2, 2.9M in Q3, and 4.4M in Q4. That is a "zig-zag" trend at best.

The numbers in context are indeed catastrophic: If you combine the two best quarters for lumias (Q2 and Q4) they still sold less than symbians in Q1.
