Nokia did not reveal how many feature phones or Lumia smartphones it sold during the fourth quarter of 2013 in its latest financial report today, but later confirmed that it sold 8.2 million Lumias in the fourth quarter.
Back in October, Nokia said it sold 8.8 million Lumia handsets worldwide and 55.8 million mobile phones for the third quarter of 2013. Today's report from Nokia's Devices and Services division stated that Lumia sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 were up from the same period a year ago but down from the third quarter of last year. Overall, Nokia sold 30 million Lumia phones in 2013, over double the number that it recorded being sold during 2012.
Nokia is now listing its Device and Services division, which includes its Lumia and Asha phone business, as "discontinued operations" in its financial reporting. The division is still scheduled to be sold to Microsoft by the end of the first quarter of 2014. However, today's news release did not indicate that the sale had actually been closed. It did say, "As of the end of 2013, Nokia has received the majority of regulatory approvals for the transaction.' That would suggest both companies are still awaiting a "thumbs up" from one or more countries before the deal can officially be completed.
