Apple is now the Number One Smartphone Maker, Beating Nokia
 
 
 

Nokia presented disappointing earnings for the last quarter. Nokia made a loss of 368 million Euro (~$529) in the last quarter. This would be actually much higher if they did not receive 430 million Euro (~$619) from Apple and others in patent royalties. Another interesting number in the Nokia Q2 2011 report is the number of smartphones they sold. In the last quarter Nokia sold 16.7 million what they call smartphones. This is 9 million less than a year ago. Apple announced earlier this week that they sold 20.34 million iPhones. The drastic loss of sales makes now Apple the world's largest smartphone maker. Samsung has still a shot though to take that title as their earnings are still coming up.

I am actually still surprised that over 16 million decided to get a Nokia smartphone instead of an Android or Apple device. What are they thinking? 

Nokia sold 71.8 million standard mobile phones. Here the decline is exact 14 million compared to last year. 

Let's hope for Nokia the move to Microsoft Windows Phone OS is really bringing the turn around.
