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.

They are announcing the first device in May:

Their Team did fail otherwise the product would be out now instead of Nokia using Windows Phone.


Totally unconvincing. Nokia is using Windows Phone because MS gave a few billions to key people there, who cared about filling the pockets in short term, and didn't care about company success long term. They didn't abandon Meego because of any lack of technical merits. Of course they'll never explicitly tell you their motives.
