Bad luck Nokia: Your Next Billion is saying No Thanks

You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs, but Nokia's looking more scrambled than anything else today. Some number crunching after Nokia's warning of worse-than-predicted financials for Q1 2012 reveals quite how badly the Finnish company's legacy business is crumbling: the same business that Nokia was relying on to keep it afloat during the Windows Phone transition. The headline figure: a mere 83 million handset sales, down from 108.5m a year ago.

Nokia: 2m Lumia sales in Q1 but finances still underwhelming

Nokia: 2m Lumia sales in Q1 but finances still underwhelming

Nokia sold more than two million Lumia Windows Phones in Q1 2012, the company has confirmed, though still warns that its financial performance for the period will be less impressive than previously predicted. The Finns blame "competitive industry dynamics" - particularly in developing markets - and a decline in gross margins for smartphones for the decline in operating margins, which it now predicts will be a loss of 3-percent rather than the break-even or  minus 2-percent as before.

Nokia offers Lumia 900 free in data bug mea culpa

Nokia has slashed its Lumia 900 Windows Phone flagship to free on AT&T, a temporary promotion to apologize to customers for a data connectivity glitch in early models.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: April 9, 2012

Happy Monday, everyone. Welcome to the start of yet another week. You know, it's not often we start off a week with a billion dollar story, but this time... Facebook scoops up Instagram for $1 billion. That almost makes this next story seem pale by comparison, but AT&T is ready to spend a whole bunch of money marketing the new Nokia Lumia 900 - $150 million to be exact. And as long as we're dealing with big numbers, let's turn to China. Not such great news there, as Anonymous says it is planning more attacks on China.

Nokia and Nicki Minaj light NYC for Lumia 900 debut

Nokia and Nicki Minaj light NYC for Lumia 900 debut

Nokia lit up New York City's Time Square for a Lumia 900 extravaganza on Friday, turning to Nicki Minaj and the CGI specialists behind i-Robot for a music and light show in keeping with AT&T and Microsoft's ambitions. The event - which followed the London deadmau5 event for the Lumia 800 in November last year - paired a remix of Starships with a 200ft high video show and live dancers, a costly spectacle that will demand more than a few $99.99 AT&T Lumia 900 sales if Nokia, Microsoft and the carrier want to make their money back.
