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

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

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...

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

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!

I think Nokia will be able to climb back up. I'm really excited for the lumia series.

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!
