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


As a critique of the Nokia business, yes, Nokia made no meaningful reply to the iPhone.

But that is not the title of this post.

Also Nokia is not just a one division company. Losses in their smart devices division while posting strong gains to offset that from NSN or somewhere else is still a good thing.

Once you take out the one time charges that aren't structural, Nokia posted a profit for the third consecutive quarter and actually improved their balance sheet.

This is what a mixed earning report is, mixed. Its wrong to universally spin this as good for Nokia, but it is also wrong to universally spin this as bad.

Its obvious the issues Nokia faced prior to this quarter they still face now, but it is also worth noting that their Windows Phone strategy is seeing increased momentum QoQ and YoY

Did I miss something, where are the strong gains?
