Commenting on the second quarter results, Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, said:
“We’re pleased to report an underlying operating profit for the fourth consecutive quarter on a group level. We
benefited from another strong performance at Nokia Siemens Networks, which continued to deliver well against its
focused strategy. With our recent announcement to purchase Siemens’ 50% stake in Nokia Siemens Networks, we
believe we will create value for Nokia shareholders and look forward to strengthening Nokia Siemens Networks as
a more independent entity.
In Devices & Services, our Mobile Phones business unit started to demonstrate some signs of recovery in the latter
part of the second quarter following a difficult start to the year. Also, towards the end of the second quarter, we
started to ship the Asha 501, which brings a new design and user experience to the highly competitive sub-100
USD market. While we are very encouraged by the consumer response to our innovations in this price category, our
Mobile Phones business unit is planning to take actions to focus its product offering and improve product
In our Smart Devices business unit, we continue to focus on delivering meaningful differentiation to consumers
around the world. We are very proud of the recent creations by our Lumia team, from the Lumia 520 – our most
affordable Windows Phone 8 product which has enjoyed a strong start in markets like China, France, India,
Thailand, the UK, the US and Vietnam – to the Lumia 1020, our star imaging product which we unveiled to the
world last week. Overall, Lumia volumes grew to 7.4 million in the second quarter, the highest for any quarter so INTERIM REPORT 2(44)

products will drive a significant part of our Smart Devices revenue.”
