- Mobile Broadband achieved 13% year-on-year increase in net sales, driven by strong growth in overall core networking technologies and modest growth in overall radio technologies. Within radio technologies, strong year-on-year growth in LTE was partially offset by a decline in mature radio technologies.

- HERE achieved 15% year-on-year growth in net sales, from EUR 255 million in Q4 2013 to EUR 292 million in Q4 2014, primarily due to HERE's leading market position and positive trends in the automotive market.
- In Q4 2014, HERE sold map data licenses for the embedded navigation systems of 3.9 million new vehicles, compared to 3.2 million vehicles in Q4 2013.
- Nokia Technologies achieved 23% year-on-year growth in net sales, from EUR 121 million in Q4 2013 to EUR 149 million in Q4 2014, primarily due to Microsoft becoming a more significant intellectual property licensee in conjunction with the sale of substantially all of Nokia's Devices & Services business to Microsoft, as well as higher intellectual property licensing income from certain other licensees.
- In Q4 2014, Nokia Technologies non-IFRS operating expenses increased both year-on-year and sequentially primarily due to investments in business activities, which target new and significant long-term growth opportunities, as well as increased activities related to anticipated and ongoing patent licensing cases.
