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.

and anyway Nokia already killed off their internal OS departments.

No they didn't ...this very news mentions Nokia S40, a platform which greatly improved (enough to be called a smartphone) over the last year+, after half a decade of stagnation. Then there's also S30, also with nicely improved models recently.

And, if anything, Symbian dept. was always largely external to Nokia. Also, some R&D centres are closed while others opened or expanding (the PRC ones)
