PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Things ain't going well for Nokia. Their quarterly results are - again - a disaster, and Lumia sales have dropped 28% (50% if you look at just the US). Windows Phone 8 is really going to be a make-it-or-break-it kind of thing. If it doesn't go well, the company might consider going back to focussing on rubber boots.

Yes, however, they are spending a ton of money promoting them in the US. The US based reviewers have a disproportionate reach with their reviews. If they don't like it and people in the US don't buy a heavily advertised product the word will spread to the other market places pretty quickly.

I understand you'r point in terms of sheer phone volume, but I'm not sure I would classify the home country of both of the leading phone os' as well as the one nokia is selling as a "backwater". Surely the home market for windows devices matters for the premier windows phone developer?
