Finnish tech giant Nokia Inc. has confirmed today that it has sold more than 8.2 million Lumia Windows Phone devices in the fourth quarter of pervious year, 2013. That figure also represents a decline of 600,000 from the past third quarter in which Nokia had sold around 8.8 million Lumia handsets.

The fall basically comes on the cups of the sale of the majority of Nokia’s hardware assets to the tech giant Microsoft Inc., meaning that the slip is now more Microsoft’s problem than it is to Nokia’s. But it is a weak indicator for the larger Windows Phone platform which was showing some signs of gathering the momentum.

The previous year was an excellent one for the Windows Phone platform. Nokia had sold around 4.4 million devices in the fourth quarter of 2012, which means that the total volume had nearly doubled on a year-over-year basis. And, except for the fourth quarter of the year, the Lumia sales have expanded like the clockwork in the year.

Between the second and the fourth quarters of the year, for an example, the Nokia Inc. sales has expanded from the number of 7.4 million to around 8.8 million, which is a healthy quarterly delta of 1.4 million.
