Which wasn't all that popular with customers till 8 was released maybe. Even now I'm not sure just how well Windows 8 Phones are selling but it's most defiantly an Improvement on the CE thing that was available previously.
Where Nokia has a Issue is their tie in with Microsoft and their refusal to adopt any other Operating System for their devices. To my mind it sort of limits their potential customers but then again I suppose if someone wants a Windows Phone they also have very limited options. Either Nokia or a very limited range of Lower End Devices. As things currently stand I'm under the impression that the Lumia is currently the only High End Windows Phone available so it should be a good seller for the small % of the market who want Windows Phones.
As 8 is still so new Nokia sales may increase but that all depends on how well the Windows 8 is accepted by the Phone users. As things stand both the HTC and Samsung 8 Phones are not beating the Market to Death with their sales over the Droid Devices from the same makers.
