PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has posted its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2013, and just like the quarters that came before, there's not a whole lot of good news in there. The rise in Lumia sales still can't even dream of making up for the sales drop in Symbian phones, and when broken down in versions, the sales figures for Windows Phone 8 Lumias in particular are very disappointing. In North America, Nokia is getting slaughtered.

Rumor has it that Nokia will be bringing out a "phablet" in hopes that will jumpstart sales. Samsung has sold a ton of Galaxy Notes so Nokia thinks bigger might be better.

That news leaked to the Internet just in time to spread before the earnings call, call me a bitter tech blog reader…
Nokia doesn’t have much direction atm, and well, next quarter they’ll again have 20 million fewer ‘smart devices’ to keep them afloat. They are done :\

"Samsung has sold a ton of Galaxy Notes so Nokia thinks bigger might be better."

No, Samsung didn't sell a ton of Galaxy Notes if you consider the figures in their context and compare them to "normal" smartphones sales.

10 million Notes and 20 million and counting for the Note II. So you have AT LEAST 5 million more Note devices than Lumia devices out there. That's significant no matter how you look at it.
