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.

As a WP8 user of 6 month, I have to say that it is crap. I find potential in a lot of aspects of WP8, but for now the OS is not finished. There are a lot of bugs in core functionality, the apps are lacking and/or buggy and the operating system feels more limiting than even iOS. I feel like I'm using a glorified feature phone (and a buggy one at that).

On the other hand, Nokia's phones are top notch and they are also doing great things on the software side doing Microsoft's job. It's incredible how bad MS is handling Windows Phone.
