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.

So sales being up 9% year over year is being "slaughtered"? It is certainly not the wording I would use.

Offset by a 49% total reduction in smartphone sales and a 21% year-over-year drop in feature phone sales! Seriously, what's wrong with you?

Yes, it still isn't bad, given that they've grown Lumia sales sequentially for 12/13 of the last quarters and they've had three straight quarters of non-IFRS profitability.

Sales could be up 100% and they’d still be ×20 behind Android sales in North America alone.

If Nokia doesn’t manage to sell enough of their devices to get a foothold in the market to make those delicious network efforts work for them, small YoY gains wont mean much as it will start trending back into the negative again.

9% increase of squat is still only slightly higher than squat ;) Compared to Apple and Samsung, and overall market share, there's no good news here for Nokia. They've hitched themselves onto a dud. This certainly wasn't what they were hoping, and they can't be happy with this.

I like WP8, but I think it's too late.
