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.

And promising features and fixes "some time in the future" like they are doing right now and have been doing for some time, ain't going to help with their current userbase also.
Since Google's extended EAS support deadline for WP approaches, I'm very interested to see if the long-awaited GDR2 update for WP8 (supposedly adding CalDAV and CardDAV support) will make it or not. Initially rumored Q2 2013, then June, then July, now rumors are mentioning even August... "Shut up and ship" my ass...it seems more like "shut up, do nothing and hope all the pain will go away".

Be interested no more, GDR2 rolls out today. Also, which WP device do you own? Given your interest and apparent advocacy for the users of that platform?

An 820. I promised myself, that I'll wait for the 8.1 update before introducing the device to my apartment wall, but seeing as the delivery of that is promised for the first half of 2014 then I just may run out of patience after all ;)
