Anonymous, 12 Aug 2011What does "carrier-centric nature" mean?By carrier centric they mean that the carriers control the US mobile market. For example, up until recently if you wanted an iPhone you could only get one from AT&T, XYZ phone from Verizon, etc. In other markets (I'm from Australia), the phone manufacturers and customers control the market, in the sense that you can get the majority of phones from any provider you wish.
Elop really does need to be sacked. He's taking way to many risks by placing all his bet's on a single OS.
Nokia may be saving there best new products for there most loyal consumers. These consumers live in markets where there's almost zero post sale costs. Thus being a great place to launch all new prodcts.
... neither to Germany due to German telecommunications site teltarif.de ( http://www.teltarif.de/nokia-n9-deutschland/news/43623.html , in German language).
carrier dependent. its always good that your phone is unlocked. way to go Nokia for not shipping in these markets. you still have whole Asia to own the market. :)
it's hilarious as, the first interesting nokia device since 3 years, will be sold only in few countries.
I suppose is some Microsoft imposition, they are afraid
this could compete with their Nokia/W7 phones
and steal market
i estimate (time will tell) that, if Nokia hopes to survive selling only Windows 7 phones,
is better their employees to already start looking for a new job
as Nokia won't survive long:)
eagle3, 12 Aug 2011Until the Android phone shatters/spoilt/broken in less than 1.5 years. If the Taiwanese brand,... moreSame here. Never had any problems with my Nokia phones before so I kept my faith...but N9 will probably be the last mobile phone I'll have from them.
n97 user, 12 Aug 2011Hahaha X 1 million.
How come every flsgship starting with n97 has been fvcked ? N97 is a POS,... moreUntil the Android phone shatters/spoilt/broken in less than 1.5 years. If the Taiwanese brand, even worse. The Nokia phones I've had lasted more than 3 years(average=5 years) under the same conditions, some people appreciate durability.
And no, they were and are not buggy, at least not the E series. So, it's either I got lucky all these years or as a certain Asian saying goes, have good 'fate' with Nokia.
The good 'fate' continues with N9 coming to my country. You all Westerners can enjoy your latest & greatest Iphone, Android phones.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2011Yehey! N9 is coming to the Philippines! :)Surely, Nokia still has a good market holding in the Philippines that's why we will not miss this flagship unit. But until when? After Filipinos realize that other brands offer more entertnmnt features than Nokia. Com'on Nokia, do something on your applications support.
There are a lot of things that the N9 will not be able to do on the first release. For example, no Radio. You will be disappointed. Some functionality will be added in the form of updates.
dgolcher, 11 Aug 2011Well dude it depends, as a Symbian^3 user I feel WP7 is a halfbaked poor excuse of a mobile OS... moreWould any of the ex-nokia employees or Intel, take N9 & its technology, form a company & develop, market it?
no new surprises. this is common attitude of nokia that generally does. it would be a wonder if nokia releasing the product on date as announced. crazy nokia and crazy nokia fans.
all the best.....
payal, 12 Aug 2011is coming India N9....really nice and suprising payal how did u know it is coming to india?

Hahaha X 1 million.
How come every flsgship starting with n97 has been fvcked ? N97 is a POS, then n900 just dumped, no software, then all the x6,x7,e7, and n8 etc..all of these phone with nice hardware have been turned into nightmares...n8 got a new os and was dumped, now n9 gets another flipping os and isnt for sale LOL. WTF ? You know what i dont kame a million euros an hour, i cant aford to spend money on nokia phones that are buggy, have power failures, lens covers that scratch the lens theyr supposed to protect rolf, and then get discontinued over night...wft ? why spend money on that ? i'll get an android , it get updates, it works. that's all that matters.
