Nokia (NOK) has cut the price of the Lumia 800 by 15% in Europe for the second time this month (previous), as it tries to clear inventory ahead of the November launch of the Lumia 820, which runs Windows Phone 8. The high-end Lumia 900 has received a 10% price cut, even as Nokia announces premium pricing for its successor.

    Only you are. No one else is. 4 million phones per quarter out of billions of phone users, are you kidding me. The stock is down another 4% today. What does that show you?

    The future is looking bright for Nokia. Good products, good divisions, global presence, strong partners, determined in their strategy. Just give up Westkite. Accept that shorting is not going to be succesfull ;)

    Nokia sells over 100,000,000 phones per quarter. Only Samsung moves slightly more phones than that. There's something wrong with you.

    4 million for an initial introduction of widow phone like Lumia in a very limited market is being considered good...LUMIA Wp8 will be marketed on a wider market worldwide & those phones are totally different animal

    i wonder why this is big news but nothing regarding navteq and all the deals which were signed this week with all the different automakers. Why is everyone at SA only focusing on the new lumia phones and overlooking everything else?

    Westkite & DeepValueLover: Predicting the short-term scenario is pretty easy. Ain't it? We'll see about your soothsaying abilities in a few weeks... ok?

     

    Predicting the long-term scenario, however, requires some out-of-the-box thinking. What are your predictions for the next 3/5 years!?
    Will Apple still be ahead if they keep selling the same, over and over again? And if they keep making so many mistakes?

     

    Meanwhile, through the looking glass....

     

    Windows makes progress in Europe (01/10/2012)

     

    "The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows that Windows is challenging RIM for third place in Europe, as low-end devices such as the Nokia 610 drive sales in key markets such as Italy and France."

     

    “Windows is making steady progress in the big European economies and is now challenging BlackBerry for third spot in the European OS league. With the momentum Windows 8 will bring towards the end of 2012, it seems highly likely that it will achieve this before the end of the year."

     

    “Lower end devices are driving sales of the platform as consumers seek value, resulting in growth rates of 6.6% in Italy, 3.5% in France and 2.3% in Great Britain."

     

    "In Italy, Windows now holds a double-digit market share, 10.4%, a first in the European market.” - http://bit.ly/QlJzZg

     

    Yes, please do read that again and sink it in, slowly:

     

    Windows Phone holds a double-digit market share, 10.4%, in Italy.

     

    That's right: 1 in each 10 Italians have already upgraded to a 21st century digital phone. What about you? Still trapped in your legacy Android/iOS phone? :-P
