Nokia has informed investors that it had a better than expected quarter for Q4 2012, with an estimated 4.4 million Lumia devices sold in the quarter. This estimate is much better than the previous Q4 2011, which only saw 1 million handsets being sold. This quarter marks the end of an entire year of Lumia sales, which brings the grand total for Lumia devices to 14.3 million in the span of a year.
Of course, this is just a preliminary report to investors to give them a heads up before the official statement comes out in a few weeks, but Nokia stock has already jumped from the $4.25 mark up to $4.60 on this news alone. It’s nice to see the company doing well for once, as it’s reliance on Symbian smartphone sales continues to decline and the Lumia line replaces it.
