PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has posted its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2013, and just like the quarters that came before, there's not a whole lot of good news in there. The rise in Lumia sales still can't even dream of making up for the sales drop in Symbian phones, and when broken down in versions, the sales figures for Windows Phone 8 Lumias in particular are very disappointing. In North America, Nokia is getting slaughtered.

Year over year smart devices sales are down only 5%. Lumia/Asha are profitable and are bringing in an increasingly large part of the cash. The issue everyone else has is that feature phones (i.e. non-symbian) are down 36% year over year. Symbian was never the big money-maker for Nokia, Lumia/Asha are not a failure in displacing Symbian, the failure is that the low-end where Nokia made up a lot of volume is going away entirely.
