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.

Uh, their Windows Phone sales are up, and have been climbing sequentially.

Sure, if going from 0.1 smartphone market share to 0.12 counts as climbing.

They sold 17 million Lumias in 2012. But I guess that's a failure, somehow.

There is a clear trend and a clear acceleration. The worst part of Nokia's transition is behind them. Now they need to double down on their strategy and keep steadily increasing their volume.

This isn't going to happen in one quarter, but you can see the trend for Windows Phone sales.
