Nokia swings back to profit in Q4, closing its toughest year with a glimmer of hope
The growth is still mostly due to profits in its Nokia Siemens Network division rather, but while Devices & Services registered less profits they were finally not in the red. In the preceding in comparison, the Finnish company lost a whopping $754 million.
This Holiday quarter is also Nokia’s best one in the long bumpy road since its adoption of Windows Phone as its main platform. Still, for the whole year Nokia has taken a nearly $3 billion loss.
Still, it’s hard to say that Nokia Lumia, the company’s Windows Phone range, caught traction. Nokia sold 4.4 million Lumias, with only 700,000 in North America. The Lumia 920 with its PureView Phase 2 camera (great for low-light situations) is what pushed Nokia smartphones average selling price (ASP) up to €186 from €140 in the preceding trimester. If we look at the Lumia lineup alone, ASP is up to €192 this quarter.
Nokia has decided not to pay out a dividend this year for the first time in a long while, even though it did register a profit this last quarter. This will allow the Finns to have a stronger liquidity position.
