Sales of Nokia Lumia Windows Phones have jumped, with Espoo saying it shifted an impressive 7.4 million of its top–end smartphones in the quarter from April to June.
That’s up from 4.4 million at the same point last year and 5.6 million in the three months from January to March.
However, that’s not to say Nokia is back to winning ways. It still lost around £98.5 million in Q2 of this year, with revenues down to £4.8 billion compared to Q2 2012’s £6 billion.
That said, these losses appear to have stabilised, suggesting that Stephen Elop is getting ever closer to steadying the good ship Nokia.
The launch last week of the company’s new 41-megapixel-packing Lumia 1020 will doubtless help boost sales over the summer.
What’s more it gives Nokia a significant lead over BlackBerry, which sold a measly 5.6 million phones in the last quarter, with terrible earnings also reported.
The question now though, is can Nokia kick on and reclaim its place at the top of the smartphone tree?
