Talk about disgrace: Lenovo ships more smartphones than Nokia in Q3

0. phoneArena 08 Nov 2012, 08:10 posted on

If a recent report by industry analyst Canalys is to be believed (and why shouldn't we believe it?), things don't look very well for Nokia. Actually, it's worse than we thought. According to the report, Nokia has continued its way to the bottom of the smartphone maker chart in Q3, and has shipped less units than many companies, including Lenovo, which is almost nonexistent in non-Asian markets...

Nokia is let down by MS repeatedly.

But dont they receive handout from MS? So they can't complain.

Nokia obviously can't go with Android b-c the contract with MS, and MeeGo is outdated and w/o a viable ecosystem.

Sad but the only hope for Nokia is WP8. It's maybe too late for Nokia.

good. its all Eflops fault. WP has been failing for the past 10 years, what good would be WP8? Fail.

How many OEM's make phones for both ms and Android? Nokia could have been making Android handsets while ms got their sh*t together. It was very selfish of ms to force Nokia into an exclusive contract while every other OEM has options available to them. At the same time, it was very foolish of Nokia to bet the farm on just WP's.

I hope they can make a comeback though...same with RIM.

I have this odd feeling that Nokia will falter under Eflop and the exclusivity game shows it.

Talk about disgrace... Does Lenovo have the quality assurance of Nokia?
Come on people, Nokia's collaboration with Microsoft just started...have patience.
Lenovo stuffs are prone to malfunctions and breakdowns.
Even the laptops...most of my friends owning the laptop, Lenovo laptop, complains about it.

Not that you or your friends are wrong, but everyone I've talked to about Lenovo says they make the sturdiest, most reliable laptops out there.

At that price it competes with Asha range of smart featurephones. Technically now S40 too is a smartphone ,as first iphone was also considered as a smartphone and Asha does a lot more. And Asha line is a great success,but not considered as smartphone. Nokia has no real marketed cheap smartphone. Some symbian phones here and there,but even nokia does not market them,instead Ashas are given more importance.

That is a pleasant surprise. I would've thought LG would be there instead. If Sony can get its act together it can be just as formidable as Samsung. They've had their troubles recently, but they have their hands in everything.

with Kazuo Hirai as CEO i believe sony can come back and be on top once again. He was able to turn the ps3 around, so i believe he can turn the whole company around. if i had the money i would go buy the Xperia TL right now but my contract has not ended yet

Oh come on PA enough bashing. Nokia has just started their journey on WP so have patience. apple didn't got great market shares in just some months right? Nokia will rise with WP8 , thats my gut feeling!!

This is the last chance they get. If Nokia don't climb some positions in the next 8 months, they are screwed!

But I really think that the new Lumia Phones will, in the worst case, stabilize the Nokia condition. The Lumias will give to Nokia the possibility to get back to the game...

i believe that windows phone is hot in the Americas and Europe but not in Asia. i think what Nokia needs to come back is to get the Asian market as well or else it would not be able to catch up to the rest in the near future

in philippines, lenovo like zte and hwawei is quite aggressive and their phones are quite cheap. a 5" touchscreen android phone sell for almost half the price of samsung galaxy s3. nokia is not only having problem in the smartphone market but also in the low end market also.

sony doing much better than i actually thought. 5% isnt much right now but that's only 10% away from apple, which isnt bad at all if you asked me. since apple is about 17% away from sammy

LMAO.

For those that are all doom and gloom on RIM, remember, they were #5 on that list. 5 positions ahead of Nokia. And RIM hasn't even released any new models this year. Talk about EMBARASSING!

Face palm... Talk about pathetic journalism.

This is just blatant misrepresentation based on various news stories circulating the internet. Can phone arena please link the so called report by Canalys which states the above ??? I very much doubt they can, because it doesn't exist !

You guys are even more reproachful than those sad-sacs at the verge.

if they could just continue the support to symbian.. this will never happen! atleast support symbian and support WP too! your new asha touch dont sell well even though its swipe UI lloks good but still its not a smartphone! really not good to buy(even though its very stylish) atleast symbian has a lot to offer even people call it dead! true nokia fans will buy symbian phones... and other just buy WP coz of the love to nokia!

yeah...really good... but actually low end lenovo runs the same OS that china phone uses! so i think lenovo is cheating on that part... but still really looks good!

i really pity nokia for these ashas! even looking good but cheap android offers more better and cheaper price (in my place there's actually a dual core snapdragon chip inside a below $100, the same chip of the new samsung galaxy s duos but clock at 1.2ghz, they both have same specs... 4" ICS with 512 RAM and 4GB ROM but a lot cheaper) so nokia should consider symbian, not S40!
