El Reg's usual approach to statistics
"Nokia's bid to sell "multimedia computers" instead of cheapo phones took another knock: the average selling price for one of its handsets slid 8.9 per cent to just over £57."
Erm... if you read the actual report you'll see that Nokia's Multimedia Computer division reported a 57% growth in profit and a 23% growth in sales. How can you interpret these as a "knock" in any conceivable way?
The average sale price went down because of enormous growth in phones in the developing world, but enormous growth in one area doesn't cancel out large growth in another.
I only did A-Level Stats 1, but even I know not to mistake averages for individual performance.
