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.

much as I love the platform - and I really do, I think it's better than iOS and Android - it simply isn't looking very healthy, and there are no signs this is going to change.


People who put there money where there mouth are, are currently piling into NOK. They are regarding Nokias performance very positively. Nokia is a few spins of the dice away from turning the market around. Reason: Nokia can output what the competition can't. HTC/Samsung/Apple are just more of the same really.

NOK is still below the actual market value. Clever gamblers bought in already since the share will go up latest when Nokia is split in pieces and sold off.

Turn-around? Yeah, happens every moment. Something I read now since 2 years.

What would you say when Microsoft announces its Surface Phone in Q1? Good for the ecosystem and so good for Nokia?
