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.

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 ;)

The 820 is in testing for GDR2 iirc, TMo (if that's your carrier) should be rolling it out pretty soon. I know its a staged roll out so YMMV.

I have no fkin clue what's going on with 8.1. Total radio silence. Self inflicted harm imo.

WP8 dev cycle looks like it was a clusterfuck which barely made its ship date from what I've been told. The NT port was apparently a huge undertaking.

Nokia also has their own WP8 feature update that's in the wings too, so it pays to choose the top tier OEM on WP. Not sure if it'll bundle with GDR2 or not.

Yeah well, I'm in a little forgotten corner in Europe on an equally insignificant carrier so I won't hold my breath.
