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.

Definitely. I was sad when they cast their lot in with Microsoft. I wanted a Nokia android phone.

I can see why they didn't go that route, I think they were thinking they couldn't compete well enough with Samsung, HTC and Motorola (and the long tail of other Android handset manufacturers).. So they went with Microsoft to differentiate, and also, how can you say no to $1 Billion.

If they can hang on for a few years they may be able to climb up to some level. It's going to be very difficult to dethrone Apple and Google's Army of manufacturers in that timeframe though.
