If you were hoping to get your hands on the Nokia N9, you’re going to have to do some hardcore searching because the company’s first MeeGo phone won’t be coming to the United States or the United Kingdom as the company focuses on its Windows Phone initiative.
In a statement to the press, Nokia said:
“At this time we will not be making it available in the US. Nokia takes a market by market approach to product rollout, and each country makes its own decisions about which products to introduce from those available. Decisions are based on an assessment of existing and upcoming products that make up Nokia’s extensive product portfolio and the best way in which to address local market opportunities.”
The Nokia N9 looked like a solid piece of hardware and it sports an amazing camera. It is not much of a surprise because the Nokia N9 runs MeeGo and the company isn’t dedicated to this platform. Many believe the release of the N9 is either an experiment or a contractual obligation.
The company will also not be bringing more Symbian devices to the United States, as it will be placing its efforts on promoting its upcoming Windows Phone handsets in the U.S. market. Rumors also suggest that it is making a big push to get these Windows Phone handsets heavily subsidized when it does land.
Any of you going to miss the Nokia N9?
