Low cost ?

> an impressive range of low cost models.

It was not so much 'low cost' as low price. In spite of MS giving a $billion a year to Nokia the phone division did not make a profit in any quarter that they made WP phones. This indicates that (overall) the phone's selling prices were below the total costs.

Nokia made that not continue and MS wrote off another $7billion.
