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.

Well since you didn't provide a specific number, I'm not sure if you mean specifically to the Devices&Services, Smart Devices, or the company as a whole.

D&S is obviously influenced as a whole by Symbian pains, I tried to get operating figures for SD specifically but couldn't find any. I did find gross margin which looks at it from a simple cost to produce POV.

Nokia gross margins for Smart Devices have increased precisely because of higher ASPs, and the way it relates to operating margin is influenced by a few different factors including marketing/subsidy/other selling costs and price erosion.
