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.

A bit weird to say that Nokia is getting slaughtered in North America since they have never had a foothold there before...

Country A has no presence in country B. Country A invades B, but they lose 80% of their invading army to the defending army, and lose massively. They are slaughtered.

North America was a very huge focus for Nokia. They clearly failed. They are being slaughtered in the market they bet a whole lot on.

I actually agree with Thom in that we need to be sober in the analysis of Nokia's North American attempts. There's no doubt they have work to do sealing the deal there. The US numbers are pitiful.
