Nokia CEO says the positive results of choosing Windows Phone are coming as soon as this quarter
Yes, there are some who believe that Nokia made a mistake in deciding to go with the Windows Phone OS and that the company would have been better off had the Finnish OEM selected Android, or even BlackBerry, instead. Earlier this year, financial glossy Forbes came out and said that considering that Nokia owns a whopping 80% of the Windows Phone market, the company made the right decision. When you think of Windows Phone, doesn't Nokia come to mind immediately?

Now, Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop says that the current quarter, which ends this month, will really show a big payoff to Nokia for choosing Windows Phone. The quarter is expected to show some very good financials for Nokia including a volume of sales that the industry won't be able to ignore. In addition, the money that Nokia has spent on improving imaging technology has paid off big time. Nokia has pushed hard the low-light photography experience that can be found on its high-end models like the newly introduced Nokia Lumia 925, the recently released Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon, and the Nokia Lumia 920.

According to the executive, Nokia will continue to try to differentiate itself with mapping and offline navigational services. He also brought up the idea of computational photography with the 16 array camera technology offered by Pelican Technology. This allows those who shoot a photograph to change the focus of the picture after it is taken.

While Windows Phone seems ready to impact Nokia's financials starting this quarter, there still is the question of whether it can make an impact on an industry that features the duopoly of iOS and Android. Elop says he has much more coming in 2013 and there are reports that the 41MP camera equipped Nokia Lumia EOS and a Nokia tablet will launch via AT&T in July. There is also speculation that a 6 inch Nokia phablet will be introduced this year
