Nokia admits $1.7bn loss in Q1 2012

Nokia has announced its Q1 2012 financial results, with a huge €1.34bn ($1.7bn) operating loss despite sales of $7.4bn ($9.7bn) in sales. Smart devices sales more than halved year-on-year as Nokia's Symbian line lost traction, declining 38-percent from Q4 2011; meanwhile, mobile phones - the bread and butter of Nokia's bottom line - fell 32-percent year-on-year, and down 24-percent on the previous quarter. "We have faced greater than expected competitive challenges" CEO Stephen Elop admitted, adding that "actual sales results [of Lumia Windows Phones] have been mixed."

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has just six months to claw its way from collapse

Nokia has six months to redeem itself with Windows Phone, analysts warn, before it needs to find a "Plan B" other than Microsoft's platform. After dire financial warnings earlier this week, in which Nokia not only confirmed that Symbian device sales were ditching, but that Lumia Windows Phone sales were only a fifth of those Symbian volumes, the outlook for the company is grim. However, while many suggest Nokia isn't, in fact, to blame for the most significant shortcomings in its device strategy, that won't save it from failure if it doesn't turn things around.

Nokia Lumia 900 vs iPhone 4: The $99 Showdown

Big news today is Nokia's US re-entry, with the Lumia 900 scoring some cautiously congratulatory reviews - ours included - at an ambitious AT&T price point and the heft of Microsoft behind it. Of course, the LTE Lumia goes up against a serious smartphone heavyweight, with Apple's iPhone 4 dominating the same $99 niche. It may be the last-gen model, but the iPhone 4 is still a mighty popular device and the iOS and App Store combination makes for a strong argument. Strap on your smartphone helmets, people, it's time to get competitive.

Nokia MWC 2012: 41-megapixels and cheap Windows Phones

Nokia MWC 2012: 41-megapixels and cheap Windows Phones

If there was a "Phoenix From The Ashes" award at Mobile World Congress it's hard to argue that Nokia wouldn't be the most worthy recipient. Twelve months ago the company was apologetically admitting it had no new devices for MWC 2011, and today it revealed a bevy of phones that opened new doors in developing markets, pushed the envelope for Windows Phone pricing, and busted the smartphone camera segment right open. We've a whole lot of Nokia coverage, so head on past the cut to get up to speed.

Nokia PureView camera tech is a true gamechanger

Nokia PureView camera tech is a true gamechanger

Nokia may have outed its latest Windows Phone variants and a fresh batch of entry-level Ashas at MWC this morning, but the real excitement is in the culmination of five years of camera development and the Nokia 808 PureView. The 41-megapixel toting smartphone certainly grabs headlines in the spec-chasing race, but in fact the real genius of PureView isn't in counting pixels but what Nokia can do with them. The 808 PureView may not be for everyone - something Nokia readily concedes - but the PureView tech it uses is coming, at least in part, to future Nokia phones. That could truly be a game-changer.

How Low Can Nokia Go?

How Low Can Nokia Go?

Nokia is ramping up for a far more interesting Mobile World Congress than in recent years: having opted out of a presence in 2011, rumors have it that the Finns have at least two new Windows Phones to bolster their range. After the original Lumia 800 and 710, and the imminent Lumia 900 headed to AT&T, we're also told to expect a new, higher-end device in the shape of a European 900 variant, along with an entry-level model that should cater to a more affordable price point. Question is, with Symbian's appeal souring ahead of schedule, has Nokia done enough to shave away smartphone pricing.

Before a big release of a new bit of software, especially in this mobile landscape we're currently reporting on all the time now, there are a set of puzzle pieces, otherwise known as leaks, that can be compiled to create a relatively clear picture of what the full release will bring. What we're seeing in the lead up to Mobile World Congress 2012 for Microsoft's Windows Phone is a set of tips that lead us to believe that the key to the mystery that is "Windows Phone Tango" is none other than the Nokia Lumia 610, an unannounced device set for release at the end of this month, and the software that'll come out first upon it: Tango.
