They should release Nokia Lumia 920 in SouthAmerica ASAP. One of their strongest markets is there!

I got mine from Singapore. I probably am the only one to be an end user/owner of a Lumia 920 here in the Philippines. It will probably be launched on Feb

i say they Nokia should focus on SEA, Europe, SA, Africa and NOT on USA. USA is not a powerful market.

Q4 results for Nokia only represent a very small time figure for selling the Lumia 920, and that was before they had access to Chinese and Indian markets. I predict the next quarter will look very different in a positive way...

last Q is the first Q 920 was on sales, this Q many top phones will be released and 920 is getting old. I think Nokia can be helped by new phones like the 920 variant for Verizon. But it will be very difficult.

Phones announced on CES will not be available in Q1. But some people may decide to wait for those, which will come to market in Q2.

Yeah, sales figures are pretty good here. A friend was number 65 in the booking list an hour after pre-booking was opened for the 920 in a particular store.

It means, this is mainly result of new Lumia line which was selling only half of 4Q with lack in suply. If they resolve problem in delivery and have no problem il low suply they can increase results. So, if they are selling it for whole quarter, it means some 1.4 mil units. If they manage to make traction, they can increase result additionaly at least 2 times. It is almost 3 mil units for 1Q 2013. And it is only for USA. And from Jan they start selling it in India, China, and all other big markets with low end devices like L620 and L505/510.

If they can manage to secure solid suply, they can reach 20-25 mil units in 1Q and other quarters can be only better... I am an optimistic...

This is very good for the stability of Nokia as a company but until the mobile division records its first profit in years, all we can do is hope
