Nokia: “Better than expected” Lumia sales in Q4 2012 make for more profit

Nokia has rallied its share price and warmed the cockles of Windows Phone lovers with news of "better than expected" phone sales in Q4 2012, with an estimated 4.4m Lumia smartphones sold.

Nokia CEO promises “exciting things with Verizon”; “We’ve just begun” on iOS

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has teased "exciting things with Verizon" in the ilk of AT&T's flagship Lumia 920, though the coy chief-exec declined to specify exactly what the CDMA carrier could be getting. "There might be another similar hero exercise with a different operator" Elop told CNET, referring to Nokia's current strategy of picking a single carrier to push flagship devices in each country. "And we're pleased to have just restarted our relationship with Verizon. We are planning a lot of exciting things with Verizon as well."

Nokia seeks Linux engineer, Android crowd goes wild

Nokia seeks Linux engineer, Android crowd goes wild

A Nokia job listing [since taken down] has been discovered seeking a Senior Engineer with Linux expertise, rather than Windows Phone experience, this leading the Android masses to have a freak-out-festival about the possibilities of a Google OS Nokia device. At the moment it's a nearly all-Microsoft party at Nokia with the latter shaking hands heavily with the former for the launch of Windows Phone 8 with devices like the Nokia Lumia 920, a hero for the operating system. With a Linux expert on their team, (not that Nokia doesn't already have engineers with such expertise), it would appear that Nokia is attempting to keep their ties with Android at least a possible future plan - but clues are dubious at best.

Nokia’s Elop: A “Surface” Windows Phone 8? Bring it on!

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has dismissed concerns that Microsoft might sway the Windows Phone 8 market by releasing a "Surface" branding smartphone of its own, saying instead that the company would welcome it. Speaking in the aftermath of Nokia's less-than-glowing Q3 2012 financial results, Elop said that while he had seen "no indications" that Microsoft planned to follow its Surface tablet with a phone, such a device would be "certainly a stimulant to the ecosystem."

Nokia: Q4 2012 is likely to be rough too

Nokia may have a new range of Windows Phone 8 devices headed to stores imminently, but the company still predicts the next quarter will be a seriously difficult one.

In fact, it expects operating margin to be down to -6%.

Nokia’s Elop: Lumia is “a step above” HTC’s Windows Phones

Nokia’s Elop: Lumia is “a step above” HTC’s Windows Phones

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has dismissed concerns that the Lumia 920 will suffer from not being Microsoft's "signature" Windows Phone, with HTC instead taking that crown, arguing that the perceived advantage is "ambiguous." Asked whether Nokia felt slighted or sidelined at HTC inking a deal with Microsoft to put the Windows Phone 8X and 8S at the core of its new advertising campaign, Elop insisted that there's more to Lumia than just Windows Phone itself. "We could have called our devices Windows Phone 920 or whatever," the chief exec told Wired, "but we felt it was important to say that we stand for something a step above."

Nokia LTE Everything Everywhere Lumia 920 deal tipped; Apologizes again for PureView goof

Nokia is reportedly planning an exclusive 4G deal with UK carrier Everything Everywhere for the Lumia 920,  a potential distraction from its second mea culpa over the faked camera sample goof. The UK exclusive would see Everything Everywhere - including T-Mobile UK and Orange - snap up the Windows Phone 8 device for a November launch, the Financial Times' sources say, echoing Nokia's sole-carrier deal with AT&T in the US on previous handsets. However, the new Lumia is still being overshadowed by Nokia's faking of the initial photography samples, something the company now says will be handled with an internal inquiry.
