Nokia has just announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2010. The Finnish company’s nets sales (including sales from services, Nokia Siemens networks and Navteq) totalized €9.52 billion – a 3% increase compared to sales in Q1 2009, but a 21% decreased compared to sales in Q4 2009.
Nokia’s net profit in Q1 2010 was €820 million – 60% higher than in Q1 2009 and 44% lower than in Q4 2009.
107.8 million Nokia phones were sold in Q1 2010 (33% global market share) – compared to 126.9 million in the previous quarter (Q4 2010) and 93.2 million in Q1 2009. The average selling price (ASP) was €62.
Of the 107.8 million units shipped in Q1 2010, 21.5 million were smartphones, like the E72 (pictured below), which will soon have a White Edition.
Nokia also announced that its first Symbian^3 devices would be available in the third quarter of the year, while the first Symbian^4 devices are expected to hit the market in 2011. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a delay – as far as I know, Nokia mentioned from the beginning that Symbian^3 smartphones won’t be out in the first half of 2010, while Symbian^4 smartphones will only be available starting 2011.
