Nokia's profit soars 65 percent, sales fall
During the October to December quarter of 2009, the Finnish handset maker improved its market share to 39 percent from 38 percent in the previous quarter and 37 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008. "We grew our market share in smartphones in the fourth quarter, driven by the successful launch of new touch and QWERTY models. Our performance in smartphones, combined with continuing success in the emerging markets, helped us increase sales in our Devices and Services unit, both quarter-on-quarter and year-on-year," said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Chief Executive Officer of Nokia.
The CEO attributed the improved results to its supply chain management and better sales execution. The company's sales from Devices and Services inched up 0.5 percent to euro 8.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009 and 18 percent since third quarter of 2009.
