http://techcrunch.com – Amid all the Windows Phone, luridly coloured Lumia hype, it’s easy to forget Nokia sells a far more successful line of mobile phones, based on its Series 40 OS. While it sold just 2.9 million Microsoft-powered Lumias in its fiscal Q3, sales of Nokia mobile phones totalled 76.6 million during the quarter — of which 6.5 million were its Asha full touch phones. For a little more context, Nokia says there are 675 million “current users” of Nokia Series 40-based phones globally. Full-touch Ashas are only a portion of the Asha range — which runs to 12 phones in total. (IT news)
