8.8 million Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices sold during Q3 2013
Earlier today, Nokia released its interm report for Q3 2013 and the company is proud to reveal that they have sold 8.8 million Lumia Windows Phone handsets in the United States during that period. This is the most Lumias the company has sold in comparison to previous quarters. In comparison to previous quarters, Nokia sold 7.4 million Lumias during Q2 2013 and 5.6 million Lumias during Q1 of 2013.
“The third quarter was among the most transformative in our company’s history. We became the full owner of NSN [mobile broadband] and we agreed on the sale of our handset operations to Microsoft, transactions which we believe will radically reshape the future of Nokia for the better. Subject to the completion of the Microsoft transaction, Nokia will have significantly improved earnings profile, strong financial position and a solid foundation from which to invest,” Nokia stated.
Since rolling out the very first Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone device back in November of 2011, Nokia has thusfar sold nearly 37 million Lumia handsets. The Nokia Lumia 520 is currently leading this growth.
As of Q3 2013, smartphone sales in North America increase nearly 400%. While North America saw huge growth, Nokia didn’t do too well in other regions of the world. Nokia still managed to snag an operating profit of 118 million Euros.
