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.

"Samsung has sold a ton of Galaxy Notes so Nokia thinks bigger might be better."

No, Samsung didn't sell a ton of Galaxy Notes if you consider the figures in their context and compare them to "normal" smartphones sales.

10 million Notes and 20 million and counting for the Note II. So you have AT LEAST 5 million more Note devices than Lumia devices out there. That's significant no matter how you look at it.

I agree, they sold a ton. I'm not sure how well Nokia would fare though, unless Windows Phone made significant strides in pen computing which I doubt.

The Note I think is popular not just for its size, but because of the way you interact with it. Samsung is clearly ahead of most with this on a mobile phone device.

Its a shame because Microsof't pen support in Windows 8 blows everyone out of the water.
