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.

Question is who will continue to sell Windows Phones after Nokia dies? And they will die if they continue to pursue the same strategy.

Maybe Microsoft will buy Nokia and continue to sell Windows Phones at a loss?

Microsoft has long been rumoured to work on a Surface Phone. So if Nokia folds, Samsung&Huawei fully concentrate on Android/Tizen, and HTC fails to return to previous strengths, they have a plan B.

Plan B is to copy the massive success that is Surface?

How many carriers will be excited about trying Surface if Microsoft lets Nokia drop out of the market?

Nokia is the only thing keeping WP above water. It might as well be called Nokia OS.
