Q4 2012's 4.4 million sold is a whopping leap over the mere 1 million Windows phones it sold in Q4 2011. The sales are also 1.5 million units better than what was sold in Q3 of 2012.

This year marks the first year of the Windows based Lumia with an astounding 14.3 million of the phones being sold worldwide. The company also revealed that its Devices and Services division also achieved profitability, which beat the gloomy outlook Nokia set for itself at the beginning of Q4.
