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.

The point is not that Symbian sales are dropping; the point is that Nokia has nothing to offset that drop, and growth in Lumia sales is nowhere near close enough to fix that any time soon.

Remember that Nokia shouldn't look at the past, but the future. There's nothing in here that shines a positive light on Nokia's future.

Year over year smart devices sales are down only 5%. Lumia/Asha are profitable and are bringing in an increasingly large part of the cash. The issue everyone else has is that feature phones (i.e. non-symbian) are down 36% year over year. Symbian was never the big money-maker for Nokia, Lumia/Asha are not a failure in displacing Symbian, the failure is that the low-end where Nokia made up a lot of volume is going away entirely.

A 49% drop in total smartphone sales is not a failure for you?
