    Lumia seems to have also misfired in the US.

    I don't understand why this is bad news. In order for NOK to stop bleeding away its cash reserves it must restructure its operating costs and plants. restructuring costs money in severance etc. especially when it comes to European markets where a 1 years salary must be paid to each laid off employee. The results of this restructuring will only be seen in Q1Q2 2013.
    I see this as good news.
    and why is it expected to continue into Q3'12?? with WP8 launching then it should have at least a MINOR positive impact.

    Where's the new news then lol. The news was expected in the restructuring phase and until new W8 - devices released ? The forecast is 1.6B in cost savings by end of year so with every thing as it stands of now -600m loss = £1B profit for early 2013?

    All I can hope for now is they return to profit in Q4/2012 or Q1/2013 at the latest. I would not again invest in a falling European company, since the restructuring cost is enormous!
