Swings and roundabouts really, sales went down year on year but up quarter on quarter. Operating profits went down, but market share (both for phones and smartphones) went up. A mixed bag.

Wow, 5800 sales are now over 1 million per month... it must surely be the best-selling Symbian device right now. I wonder how long before it overtakes sales records for a Symbian model. What would the record be, 10 million? 20 million?

5800XM biggest selling mp3 player of the year? Could be, at least in europe.

@Tzer2
The Nokia N73 currently holds the record for the best selling smartphone of all time. The last time it's sales figures were reported, it had sold over 22 million units.

The 5800XM still has a way to go.

Has anyone read engadget's take on this? Not surprising, but how do they have the balls to do it!

The most interesting things for me would be the fact that the Eseries has surpassed the Nseries in terms of sales, even if not by much, as well as the fact that the 5800 has sold almost as well the iPhone.
The way Engadget covers the story isn't surprising but I don't take them seriously when it comes to economic subjects anyway.

Using highly detailed statistical analysis these figure show that by the year 2027.69
Nokia will be the only mobile phone maker left on the planet.

"You can't polish a turd."

That doesn't stop AAS from trying.

iPhone - one carrier for one country sold by (mostly) one vendor outselling a seriously cheaper phone available on multpile carriers from multiple vendors in multiple countries.

Nokia should be seriously working on something to combat that certain smartphone IMO.

Oh and whoever said the 5800xm being the best selling MP3 player lmao don't make me laugh

If they did have shares they wouldn't be so dismissive of those plummeting profits.

LOL! Love it. Great results in a recession blowing away everything outside the US.

Nokia continues to confound the Nokia knockers and the Nokia knockers still find a way to twist it down. I think they doth protest too much.

If you don't like it don't buy it, and don't worry about it.
