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.

profitability keeps the doors open.

It's just a shame that during the fastest growth market in history nokia went from having the largest share to having almost none of it.

That's absolutely historic and I'm sure business textbooks will use nokia's collapse as a case study on business failure for many years to come.

Nokia's stupidest mistake was to bet it all exclusively on one single dinosaur vendor instead of nimbly keeping their options open. If they would have even kept their fingers in android they could still have a healthy marketshare and definitely better leverage against microsoft.

HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony all were able to adjust to the market because they kept their options open.
