In the third quarter of this year Nokia sold almost 7 million GPS-enabled devices, up over 50% from the previous quarter, said Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo at the end of last week during a conference call with analysts. In that third quarter Nokia shipped almost 9 million Nokia Nseries and 3 million Nokia Eseries.
During the third quarter Nokia “Services and software” had EUR115 million of net sales and total billings of EUR140 million. Billings grew 15% sequentially. “Navigation has been and continues to be our lead service,” said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo. Nokia now bundles navigation with over 70% of its GPS-enabled handsets.
