PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The decline continues for Nokia. While Lumia sales volume increased by 32% to 7.2 million during Q2, this was well short of the 8.1 million analysts expected would be sold. Meanwhile, smartphone sales are down 10.2 million units from Q2 2012, based solely on the death of Symbian. Did Nokia jump from a burning platform to a sinking ship? Or will the next Windows Phone update finally bring feature parity with Symbian? Note from Thom: Loads of new models, yet still not the turning point we are promised every time Nokia releases quarterly figures. I'm sure the next quarter, with the next new flagship, will turn it all around.

I always wondered why Samsung was the only manufacturer that realizes that Apples focus on one high end handset is part of the reason for their success? HTC seems to be getting it, and LG is close. Nokia seems to have 5 different flagships, most carrier exclusive in the US.

Make one, cutting edge model and keep it for a year. It's much easier to get the mind-share when people can actually figure out your model lineup.

At least Nokia has numbers, somewhat sequential.
