Tech winners & losers story updated with closing prices.

NEW YORK (

TheStreet

) -- The

Nasdaq was off

68 points Friday to 2,686, due to disappointing corporate earnings, Egypt unrest and an

index-pricing glitch

that caused the Nasdaq to briefly halt in the morning.

Amazon

(AMZN) - Get Report

Microsoft

closed down 3.84% to $27.76 despite

posting better-than-expected

second-quarter earnings Thursday.

Bolstered by Kinect and Office 2010 sales, the software giant posted an adjusted profit of 77 cents per share on sales of $19.95 billion, up from 74 cents EPS on sales of $19 billion in the year-ago quarter. Analysts were expecting EPS of 68 cents and revenue of $19.14 billion.

Some analysts were disappointed by Microsoft's miss with Windows sales. The company reported Windows revenue of $5.05 billion; analysts wanted to see $5.2 billion.

Hewlett-Packard

(HPQ) - Get Report

went down 2.63% to $45.51. Earlier this week,

(SYMC) - Get Report

dropped 2.53% to close at $17.46, even after

shares closed slightly up Friday, 0.09% to $10.57.

More than 250 million people use Nokia devices in China, according to the company.

The slight share price rise of the world's largest phone shop came after

analysts reports surfaced

Friday noting that the company could partner with either Microsoft or

Google's

(GOOG) - Get Report

Android OS in a bid to reenter the U.S. smartphone market. Nokia will likely announce its strategy on Feb. 11, during the company's analyst day.
