The Asha phone has a touch screen and other similar smartphone functions, such as social networking applications and Web browser, and the price is more accessible, made a good response in the emerging markets, for the third quarter of the Finnish company in poor financial condition will not fell on the very point of embarrassment. In the field of ordinary mobile phones, Nokia good financial results, but to gain a foothold in the rapidly expanding smartphone market but the market is currently dominated by Apple’s iPhone series and Samsung products. Nokia has bet its future in the field of smart phones in the so-called Lumia series phones. The series phones running Microsoft’s Windows operating system has a complex and cutting-edge camera and map technology. However, with the marriage of Microsoft’s strategy is not to reverse the situation. This quarter, Nokia sold 63 million units only intelligent machines, 168 million for the same period last year. Of which only 29 million units for the Windows-based platforms Lumia intelligent machine. In the key North American market, Nokia has only sold 30 million mobile phones.

A the analysis from Evli Bank Christie (Mikko Ervasti) known as the Noci third quarter performance “incredible”. However, Nokia, the former world’s largest mobile phone maker, even with Microsoft’s Windows platform for its next-generation smartphone , its performance is still deteriorating. The strategic adjustment of the adventure is designed to eliminate the situation of decline in performance, it is clear that the user has to give up the old Nokia brand, steering smartphone with sleek lines and advanced features, such as Apple’s iPhone or Samsung Galaxy series phones. Therefore do not have a strong market response caused by the new generation of Nokia smart phones based on Windows platform. Nokia’s third quarter performance report shows sales of 7.24 billion euros from 6.93 billion euros expected by analysts, but far lower than the 8.98 billion euros in the same period last year. The third quarter net loss of 969 million, compared with 068 million euros in the same period last year. Cash reserves shrink further, the end of the end of September, to 3.6 billion euros to 4.2 billion euros in the end of July. Week IV the Nokia CEO Stephen Elop in an interview, said the decrease in cash reserves largely rooted in the company’s business structure adjustment. “In fact, this is a contradiction. Faster structural adjustment, the greater the cost of funding, but no matter what, in order to enhance the performance, so the whole is not a bad thing.”

The heavy losses in the third quarter is not surprising. Nokia has long reminded the quarter will not let people easily. This is the case are not yet listed in its biggest ever range of windows phone product line – the flagship product Lumia 920 and slightly lower pricing Lumia 820.
