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.

Split that green graph off into WP7 and WP8. 1/3 of all there Lumia sold in Q1 where written off and under price sold WP7. Include that and you get a waveform of ups and downs. You should also remove the first quarter from your graph or interpolate it since it wasn't a full quarter. So much for basic accuracy when splitting out single numbers of a whole diagram to make a specific point out of the original context.

Taken the very small numbers of sold units into account you yourself waiting a week to buy your new Lumia becomes visible. Also better use double double for calculations since rounding errors have huge effects on your graph.

Nokia is still selling Windows Phone 7 devices. The Nokia 505, 510, and 610 are still being sold and advertised around the world, and people are still buying them.

Its incredible that people bitch about this, its like there still being Android 4.0 an 4.1 devices out there. Its not like Nokia is selling a Windows Mobile handset.
