The announcement of financial results for the second quarter of the year Nokia confirmed as a highly anticipated: the marketing of Windows Phone Lumia finally seems to have entered into the heart, marking, with four million units, a doubling of sales over the previous quarter.At the same time overall sales of Nokia smartphones has suffered another decline of 14%.
It's obvious that to determine the percentage contribution of the Finnish manufacturer of the devices based on the Symbian platform whose market share looks set to shrink gradually.
Example to describe the passing of the baton between the Symbian and Lumia smartphones is an interesting graph of Statcounter reported to the Finnish market. The chart shows the percentage of use of Windows-based devices and Symbian Phone substantially similar. The trends however are different : Windows Phone is growing, the Symbian platform is in decline.
We clarify at the outset that the data refer to all Windows terminals Phone (mainly in Finland represented range from Lumia). As you can see from the screenshot at the beginning, the percentage use of the terminals as Symbian and Windows Phone is substantially similar and equal to about 12% . As anticipated, the spread of all Windows Phone has been a marked acceleration in the month of July, while the Symbian seems to have a slight but steady decline.
Interestingly, another as deduced from the graph, is the evolution in the use of the Nokia (regardless of OS). The breakdown of the device of the Finnish manufacturer is around 30%, confirming the fact that the transition between the Symbian and Lumia devices may have left substantially unchanged the market share of Nokia in Finland.
