PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The decline continues for Nokia. While Lumia sales volume increased by 32% to 7.2 million during Q2, this was well short of the 8.1 million analysts expected would be sold. Meanwhile, smartphone sales are down 10.2 million units from Q2 2012, based solely on the death of Symbian. Did Nokia jump from a burning platform to a sinking ship? Or will the next Windows Phone update finally bring feature parity with Symbian? Note from Thom: Loads of new models, yet still not the turning point we are promised every time Nokia releases quarterly figures. I'm sure the next quarter, with the next new flagship, will turn it all around.

she was firm that she did not want a Windows phone.

The fear of BSODs took her, hehe:

Its not BSODs ...

First Lumias in US had plenty of hw problems on their own.

And WinP was incomplete especially if LOYAL NOKIA CUSTOMER switched from previous Nokia flagships. (no phisical keyboard, which would be problem for sms heavy Nokia fan, no bluetooth, no ...)

And Nokia did run few actions where they refunded Lumias, because of defects. That was very good behavior, but it also confirm that initial Lumias had problems. Hence some distrust to this platform.
