Nokia's Lumia Is Selling Well In U.S. But Not So Good Elsewhere
Apr 20, 2012 13:00
Nokia is managing to shift its new Lumia range in the U.S., and that's great news except that its performance elsewhere is less impressive. The company just announced their first quarter financial results and it suffered a $775 million dollar net loss over the period.
Their US sales however, have "exceed expectations" according to Stephen Elop, but other markets are "more challenging", despite a huge marketing campaign.
Nokia sold 11.9 million smart phones during the first three months of 2012, and less than half of the 24.9 million it achieved in the first three months of 2011. Can things get better since the Lumia 900 is out now? [Nokia via The Verge]
