PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia just posted its quarterly results - including shipped devices - and it's not looking good. Massive losses, sales dropping, and no growth in Lumia sales in the US. The company is losing money hand-over-fist, and with Windows Phone 8 still months away, the company warns the next quarter will be just as bad.

Free Xbox was it provided for the highest model or all models?

Maybe they could have sold more if they had the offer in India.

It was a strategic present to win the us-market. Nokia was before not present in US and winning there would have given Elop at least one success-story. He failed even there, even with that present, even with a Microsoft product at Microsofts homeland, with the mobile gigant #1 in a mobile business and with a unique marketing offensive, partners like AT&T and T-Online and a product sold far below cost.

Elop once suceeded on something at least. He became CEO of the ex-mobile gigant #1. Its just that this one time everybody[1] would have been happy if he failed like he did afterwards all of the time. What an iron.

[1] Except Microsoft, Apple and Samsung which all profit from Elop mastering Nokia.
