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.

It means growth Quarter over Quarter compared to themselves, not growth compared to anyone else.

Let's compare Nokia's profits from 2007 or 2008 with profits from 2012, then.


If the trend is that Nokia is steadily increasing its volumes, then it can be seen as an indicator of slow but steady growth.

Nobody is saying they don't grow. But the speed at which they grow is very slow. And if that slow growing speed is applied to a low market share, overall numbers are still bad.
