Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Finland is Nokia. Nokia is Finland. I've traveled to quite a few number of countries this year, and the only place where I see Lumia phones is this chunk of ice that I call home. According to the Finnish business publication Taloussanomat, who references data from IDC, Q1 2013 was the first quarter where mobile phones from the South Korean handset maker Samsung outsold those designed in Espoo. If that's not alarming, I don't know what is." Ouch.

Wonder what all the Elop supporters have to say about this. "Oh, he's doing great! At least Nokia ain't dead yet!"

Surely this can't be too much in Microsoft's favor either, with what is now a major Microsoft-only phone shop dropping down the charts even in its home country.

I thought nokia sold Asha and Symbian phones...

Which is why it would be interesting to see a breakdown of the Nokia share. Because if it's anything like the rest of the world, their sales of Windows Phone handsets would be increasing at the same time as their share is falling because of Asha/Symbian falling off.

Symbian is somewhere below 0.1% already. No its-because-of-(us-burning-)symbian excuse possible any longer.

According to the source Samsung outsold Nokia in both segments, featurephone (Asha) and smartphone (Lumia). Nokia is losing even in its traditional strong homeland. There is no but attached and no happy end in this suicide story.
