PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has just sent out a few preliminary comments about the company's performance during the fourth quarter of 2012. Nokia's figures are a good indicator for how well Windows Phone 8 is doing, and, in all honesty, I'm not exactly blown away. Apparently, neither was Nokia itself, since the company decided to redefine their Asha phones from feature phone to smartphone to prop up their smartphone sales figures.

Things are almost per definition turning around business-wise, since the whole point of the announcement was to tell the markets that they expect to actually make a profit on devices, which they haven't for a long time.

You may consider the Asha part of the announcement uninteresting, but that too is a new line in many ways, so it doing well is great news for Nokia.
