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.

Seriously.

Nokia handsets, IMHO are well engineered but overpriced for what they are. The specifications just don't justify the cost.

Windows Phone flagship is Android mid-range.

Microsoft have blown it. The party's over. I bought into the 'dream', but have decided to cut my loses and return to Android.


With the handling of Surface (especially RT), XBone DRM and Technet it's obvious they haven't a clue and don't intend on getting one anytime soon.

I'm gone and I'm not coming back.
