Nokia has released its latest quarterly results, and whilst the company posted a third quarter net loss of 68 million Euros, the loss was much lower than expected with Nokia increasing sales of lower priced handsets up 8 percent to almost 90 million units.
Next week, on October the 25th Nokia World will take place in London, and we will finally get to see our first Nokia Windows Phone devices, since Nokia and Microsoft announced their new partnership earlier in the year.
We already know that Nokia will be announcing the Nokia 800, which is a Windows Phone Mango device that shares a similar design to the Nokia N9, and we have also heard that they may launch some other Nokia Windows Phone devices at the same time.
Nokia have hard poor smartphone sales over the last few years, especially in the US, where the company has been unable to compete with the likes of Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android devices.
Nokia has always produced great hardware, what has let them down in recent years is their software, we are looking forward to seeing what they unveil next week, and whether they will be able to turn their smartphone business around with the help of Microsoft’s Windows Phone.
