As expected, this morning, Nokia has released the financial results of the 2nd quarter of 2012 and what we learn from the figures in the summary tables (see below) are the first signs of a turnaround , although the Finnish company is still at in a delicate and difficult period of transition.
The numbers and percentages than in the previous quarter appear to be more encouraging and demonstrate a greater hold of competitiveness in the mobile industry with the introduction of new feature phones family Asha Lumia and sale of devices with Windows Phone,which have been sold in 4 million units, a reasonable result considering that the new operating system is still young and not yet known by the great mass of consumers.
