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.

Momentum, huh?

"35 percent are planning to develop for Windows Phone in the third quarter of 2013"

Planning.

And many have planned, developed, and released apps already. Tell me, how many apps are in the Store?

“Developer interest in Windows Phone 7 phones dropped sharply. WP7 “very interested” levels dropped from 37.0 % in Q1 2012 to 25.0% in Q2 2012. This was not unexpected given disappointing WP7 handset sales to date and Nokia’s recently reported competitive challenges.”

Momentum (downwards). You done playing shill?

Where exactly is the momentum and why are you posting a link from a year ago? As I have said before you lack judgement and are incapable of determining what you should shill for. I and most people here called Surface RT a dud last year but you shilled for it anyways. Did you defend the Kin?
