Thanks to last minute changes made to Windows Phone smartphones, Nokia can finally be optimistic about the future, expecting a profitable 2012 year.
The tendencies are confirmed by Morgan Stanley, with sales numbers of 37 million units for Windows Phone smartphones.
The perspectives for 2013 are even better, as the number of Windows Phone smartphones might overcome Symbian sales, reaching no less than 64 million units.
To compare, Morgan Stanley estimated the HTC sales in 2012 will not be higher than 6 million Windows Phone smartphones, and around 10 million units in 2013.
It remains to be seen of the combined efforts of Nokia and Microsoft will make these predictions come true even if the Windows Phone 7 OS is long behind competitors like Android and iOS as both these platforms matured and have a solid base of apps and loyal users.
