PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And the burning platform is still, uhm, burning. "Chief Executive Stephen Elop is placing hopes of a turnaround on a new range of smartphones called Lumia, which use largely untried Microsoft software. But Lumia sales have so far been slow, disappointing investors." It's a shame to see a once proud company in such a downward spiral, but alas, it's the way of business. If you get complacent - as Nokia had gotten - you will fail.

> Symbian on the high end never did this great.

You seem to get the numbers once more wrong. Symbian *still* has way more market-share then WP7 every had and hence there are way more Symbian-devices sold then WP7.

See e.g. http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=1924314

Symbian: 32.3% market-share
Windows (CE and WP7 combined): 3.4% market-share

And just to make it clear: The N8 is as much high-end as someone can have and it sold way better then all lumia together.
