Nokia ends 2013 with Lumia dreary but stable future

Nokia's net sales in the last quarter of 2013 rose 18-percent compared to Q3, but the company still ended the year down €12.7bn ($17.4bn) compared to 2012.

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1520 grabbed the bulk of the headlines at the company's Abu Dhabi event last October, but it wasn't the only phablet the company brought along.

Nokia Android smartphones dumped: wearables full steam ahead

While the Android Nokia Lumia device dreamed of by hackers and lovers of crossovers alike has been a subject of rumor for some time now, today's news appears to dismiss the final product altogether. What we're to understand now is that the group inside Nokia's devices division that would have released an Android device - heavily customized though it would have been - has been taken off the project entirely. Instead they've been reassigned to working on devices such as a wearable headset - which, incidentally, could end up running Android anyway.

iPhone 5s beats Galaxy S4 as duo dominates worldwide sales

This week a report has been struck by the folks at Counterpoint Research that suggests that it's Samsung and Apple ahead in the sales of smartphones worldwide by a mile throughout the month of October. Their research shows models sold throughout the world, so to speak, surveying 33 countries throughout it, including China where they suggest a boom has occurred this late 2013. Oddly enough it would appear that both the Nokia 105 and the Nokia Asha 501 are up in the ranks as well, taking on the 8th and 10th spot in sales respectively.
