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.

If your company falls and shrinks that fast while explicit shrinking talent away then you are left with those who may not able to find a new, better place to work at.

During past 2 years whenever we read Nokia fires another bunch of people who did they fire? Where did they decrease? Not at management level, not marketing, not at lawyers. Production and R&D! That gives you a water-head company with 20 levels of management and nobody left below for execution. Good luck with that when being forced to produce something again rather then only repackage, market and resell what comes out of Redmond.

Even hardware-expertise is lost. That's why Lumia is still Lanku, why Pureview was lost, why qwerty was lost.

What stays is the name and a believe Nokia is still the same Nokia like before.
