Nokia has just announced it financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2009.
The Finnish company reports net sales of €12 billion for Q4 2009, and net sales of €40.9 billion for full 2009. The operating profit for Q4 was €1.14 billion, while the operating profit for full 2009 was of €1.19 billion (the Q4 2009 and full 2009 values are almost the same because Nokia actually lost money in the previous quarters).
Nokia sold 126.9 million phones in the fourth quarter of 2009 (17% more than in the third quarter of the year) and raised its market share to 39% (from 37.3% in the previous quarter).
20.8 million Nokia smartphones were shipped in Q4 2009, 4.6 million being Nseries, and 6.1 million being Eseries. Among the new smartphones introduced by Nokia last quarter we must mention Nokia E72, Nokia N97 mini and Nokia X6 (pictured below).
Overall, Nokia sold 431.8 million devices in 2009 (67.8 million of them were smartphones) – that’s a 7.8% decrease compared to the 468.4 million units sold in 2008.
Nokia estimates that the total number of mobile device shipped in 2009 (by all manufacturers) reached 1.14 billion units – a 6% decrease compared to 2008.
