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.

I'm actually looking at picking up an Asha. They look nice.

Nice?

Small, low-res (320x240, 400x240), low-quality displays (most are resistive)
Low end cameras.
Antiquated feature-poor platform.
Slow hardware.
Price tag comparable with entry-level android smartphones.

I don't see what's nice in Asha phones, besides decent battery life.
