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.

No shit. Am I supposed to be the slow one here?

What does that have to do with how many sales Samsung, Apple, HTC, Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo, Sony, LG, HTC, RIM, Nokia, and the misc. other Others which includes (somehow performing even worse than RIM, Nokia, and HTC) Google/Motorola and Google/contracted through Samsung, Asus, HTC, LG, or any other manufacturer?

Because it doesn't look like Google is particularly successful as a manufacturer and seller of mobile hardware either. Maybe liked and well-reviewed, but not obviously a sales success.

Because that's not there business. There business, where they make the money, are there services. Android is the door to there services. That door is closed on e.g. Windows Phone. By far most Android devices, those counted with activations, are using there services. That's lot of money for Google. Have a look at there annual numbers.
