Nokia’s gamble with the Lumia range of smartphones certainly looks set to pay off big time, as the Finnish phone manufacturer does seem to be heading back from the brink, so to speak. Well, they still control the entry level featurephone market in most places around the globe, so the company is not going to sink anytime soon, either.
