Nokia Only Sells Twice as Many Lumias as Symbian Phones

This shocked me: I didn’t realise Symbian devices were still being sold. I used to own a Nokia N95 before my first iPhone (the 3GS) and I thought it was one of the last Symbian devices. Obviously not.

Even though these fourth quarter numbers might pale in comparison to Apple’s predicted 65 million iPhone sales, they were enough to make Nokia’s stock jump 16%.

I think Nokia’s biggest problem is the 70 million extremely low-end Series 40 phones they sold. They should produce smartphones so enticing that their low-end phones become undesirable.
