The only real reason this Phone will be expensive is to make sure it is a fail and so far the CEO is doing a great job for MS at ensuring the N9 and Meego are a fail. NOKIA is seriously lacking good leadership qualities at the moment.
Ever wondered why the N9 was not anounced back in february? Well it would have affected MICROSOFT - NOKIA DEAL and prove that nokia didn't need wp7 back then and hence ELOP ensured the N9 was delayed until the MS deal was sealed. People stop hatin on NOKIA the real problem here is Elop.
Nokia, at least the part of Nokia that wants WP7, doesn't want the N9 suceed.
Can someone tell me how Wp7 can survive without Nokia? And yet Mr Elop is busy making it look like Nokia is nothing without WP7 when infact it is the other way around. There are other options around e.g android, meego..
600 dollar for this crap ...come on guys dont fall for this shit go on samsung galaxy2 its 100 times better than this crap called nokia
LOL @ price... that's insane! I suspect they will produce very limited quantities. it is even more expensive than iPhone... :-((
I'm in love with this device, I'll buy it as a collection item, it'll gonna cost a lot more later, even used :)
who's going to buy unfinished dvice with this amount?...
unless you %$#@$
Elop said this weekend that there will be no more Meego devices. That's basically saying you have no confidence in your own product before it's even released. Bad move Nokia. If I had a large amount of shares, I'd be furious right now.
I've seen Elop's presentation about W7-00 or Sea Ray, but I didn't saw anything unique beside the physical design of the phone, so why should I choose Nokia, and not the others ? Windows phones now sell for 300 euros unlocked (even HD7, which was 600 euros). Should I pay 200 more just because it's nokia ?
Why they launched it when they are half hearted about Meego Platform. Consumer buying Nokia products to get proper support why we ruin our hard earned money for adventires like this. It seems good and promising but Nokia is a dying giant. I dont think WP7 is a good choice for platform.
