PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "If we then use comScore's figure for total smartphone users (110 million) then the data would suggest that there are 330k Lumias in use in the US. This would have been accumulated over a sales period of about four months." Ouch. For a phone with such a huge marketing push, this is quite painful.

> dead wrong on his analysis of the "Elop effect"

He's pretty right on this one. It was the platform memo thing which marked the breakdown in Nokia. People started leaving, their stocks fell and etc. Elop is an exemplary management failure figure.

Actually, no. If you look at financial analysis from before the WP7 effect, independent analysis showed that Nokia was in a dive.

Nokia was already in full decline a quarter before the Burning Platform Memo.

If you chart their trajectory, you see no trajectorial change until Q2 2011, a full quarter after he claims the supposed effect made any difference.

Misleading.

Speaking of misleading, Nokia stocks dropped like a rock from 9 to 14 February 2011, the single sharpest decline throughout the last couple of years, and after a modest climb that hasn't been seen since then.
