Nokia’s official financial numbers for the first quarter of the year are in and while the Finnish phone maker managed to improve its Lumia sales record — selling 5.6 million units compared to the previous record of Q4 2012 and its 4.4 million units — the company also registered an operating loss of €150 million (around $195.7 million); however, revenue is reported at €6.5 billion ($8.48 billion). Out of all Lumia phones sold in the first quarter, two thirds were powered by Windows Phone 8.

Nokia underlined that Lumia sales were up around the world, except for the North American market, where they plummeted. Compared to the last quarter, when Nokia sold 700,000 units, the company only managed to sell 400,000 Lumia phones on the American market.

The company’s CEO, Stephen Elop, said: “at the highest level, we are pleased that Nokia Group achieved underlying operating profitability for the third quarter in a row. While operating in a highly competitive environment, Nokia is executing our strategy with urgency and managing our costs very well”.
