It would appear that things could be looking up for Nokia, and the Lumia range of Windows Phone smartphones, as the company has released some details on how many Lumia devices they sold in quarter 4 of 2012.
Nokia managed to sell a total of 4.4 million Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices in the last quarter of 2012, and they sold a total of 15.9 million smartphones, which includes the 4.4 million Lumia handsets, 2.2 million Symbian devices and 9.3 million Asha devices.
We are pleased that Q4 2012 was a solid quarter where we exceeded expectations and delivered underlying profitability in Devices & Services and record underlying profitability in Nokia Siemens Networks. We focused on our priorities and as a result we sold a total of 14 million Asha smartphones and Lumia smartphones while managing our costs efficiently, and Nokia Siemens Networks delivered yet another very good quarter.”
It looks like the fourth quarter for Nokia, who have made a loss in their previous quarters in 2012 will either be a break even one, or they could end up making a small profit of around 2 percent.
