The ''global'' release i so messed up, at the time i can buy it here it's old and too expensive.
People bashing here about ''it's better than those cheap china phone's this that''
Well al least those china phones are available worldwide.
This China/India made phone acting like a European-top-player-making-a-return is not even available in Europe!
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2017They are a start-up. They need time to build all their resources and support centres. 3 months... moreIf u can give me some facts u could convince me, i'm convinced they choose to let us wait.
They are selling there units in China and India already.
It's HMD ''Global'' they should be albe to release it worldwide.
If they wanted to sell it here already it would be here already.
I can buy Nokia's all over the place but i can't buy a Nokia 6?

Dissapointed in Nokia at this point.
HMD Global can't do a global launch.
The phones been announced in Januari.
They are available in China and India already, the UK, Netherlands and rest of Europe need to wait this long? ( half a year? )
I wanted this phone in Januari not a half-year later.
Now they releasing the 3 and 5 but not a word or date on the 6.
I'm searching for another phone at this point.
By the time they will release it, it will be anything but new and the 430SD will be outdated/old at that point.
Nokia-staffs, 23 Jun 2017Does anyhone else feel that Nokia have got the launch of these new phones all wrong? There has... moreYeah, and what's funny is that they are not actually NOKIA, at least not by the name and they still behave like nokia. It is soooo typical nokia, which i actually expected not to happen again. Anyway, i think nokia should also start innovating a new system, android is slowly becoming a shipwreck.
Does anyhone else feel that Nokia have got the launch of these new phones all wrong? There has been too long a gap between launch date and the as yet unknown release date for the Nokia 6. I'm seriously considering buying another phone as I feel that I've been waiting too long.

These phones were displayed at mwc in February. It took the best part of 5 months or close to half a year to then release. Three months would have been more appropriate. And sticking to the original price would have made the wait worthwhile.

They need the time to build their bases and support services around the world first - they can't avoid. If the competition gets ahead well that's tough but there's nothing a start up can really do anything about that. Speaking of which, the actual flagships haven't even been announced yet, so we must likely won't have to wait long for them to release.
Seiously...The Nokia roll out has been poor. Way back in January the Nokia 6 was anounced.
No sight of it yet. Nokia 9 will be iut sooner. Think I ll buy Moto.Patience has gone.
Price is a little bit higher than expected as €189 euros is around £168 at the moment so £180 is higher than expected and places this closer to the higher spec competition. Might be a debut price that come down later but was expecting cheaper really. Plus not happy at how long I've had to wait for this phone since it was first unveiled....yes I understand the need to get the sales and customer support in place but the competition is releasing phones with similar/better specs in a price range not too far away.
They are just setting up everything, manufacturing, sales, marketing, support etc, but they are ensuring top notch quality. Hence its fine. Am sure for the next line up of products they will be much faster in bringing it to market.
