Nokia Lumia sales fall 28 percent in Q3
Nokia Lumia sales fall 28 percent in Q3 to 2.9 million, North American sales cut in half
Disappointing. Wonder how long Elop will stay on. Would be nice to see them start doing well. Samsung needs some competition in the not-Apple space.

Not really surprising, why would anyone buy a Lumina now when there's no possibility of upgrading that phone to win8.
I wouldn't count Nokia and MS out quite yet, I do think they have a winner on their hands with win8.

Yeah they killed sales announcing new handsets months before they are going on sale. Big mistake. Why would anyone sign up for a 24 month contract to avail of a phone that is going to be replaced by another only 12 weeks later ?
It's a shame that Nokia came late to the Windows phone 7 party, meaning customers dont get long with teh device before its replacement.
At least normally Windows mobile devices have the longest run of being 'flagship' in their own category getting 18-24 months before hardware and software is usurped.
As long as Nokia & Microsoft can take that loss on the chin, then Windows mobile 8 and new lumia range may see the tide change... Though it proves how hard it is to make feet in a market saturated by Android & iOS even when you have to massive names behind it....
Those still holding onto the dream that Meego & WebOS may resurface.. keep dreaming....
