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.

Average sales price plummets

It appears that the high-end Lumias don't sell any more. The increase in sales numbers was almost precisely nullified by the drop in sales price.

Nokia sold 7.4 million phones for an average of 157€ in 2013Q2.
Before that they sold 6.1 million phones for an average of 191€ in Q1.

In only 6 months the Lumia 920 price dropped from 600€ to around 330€ in Germany. This can't be good for Nokia.
