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.

As you can see, even Lenovo sold more smartphones than Nokia. Huawei and Zte sold much, much more. And 4 years ago Nokia was #1 mobile phone seller while Huawei and Lenovo were maybe in top 100 while Lenovo didn't even sell phones at that time.

Now, tell me more about Nokia's massive growth.
