Nokia profit excites, market share drop doesn't

While Motorola is gaining ground on its global share of the handset market, Nokia lost ground in the second quarter. The world's largest mobile-phone maker posted strong second-quarter earnings with a 45-percent increase in net profit and 22-percent rise in sales, but investors were disappointed with the 1-percent loss in global market share. Nokia's market share for mobile phones fell from the previous quarter to 34 percent from 35 percent.
