Nokia N9 coming to the UK and Won’t Sell Nokia N9 in US! whay?

Nokia N9 Coming to the UK

It’s thought that Nokia is holding back the N9 so as not to dampen the impact of its ‘Sea Ray’ phone, the working title for the first Nokia Windows Phone 7 phone. Appearance-wise the two phones are virtually identical and it’s everyone’s guess that the specs are as well.

Obviously Nokia has a lot riding on the Sea Ray, essentially its big comeback phone. But then again the N9 has gained a lot of interest from customers, despite MeeGo being in the pipeline for a good couple of years.

Nokia N9 Won’t Sell Nokia N9 in US!

For now, it looks as though MeeGo fans in the UK are going to have to order one in from the continent and cough up the pennies for an N9 SIM-free.
I guess the Nokia N9 is one of the most discussed smartphones of the Finnish company now. It’s running MeeGo — a platform everyone thought was going to be something experimental; it came out that MeeGo is a great OS offering awesome experience we haven’t seen earlier. Anyway, it looks like the U.S. market is not ready for other OS currently, which means Android, iOS and BlackBerry OS will dominate there. Most likely, this is the main reason why Nokia decided not to sell the Nokia N9 in the U.S.

From the very beginning of Nokia’s N-series’ handsets U.S. wasn’t welcoming them for some unknown reason. Even when the Nokia N8 was released and Europe with Asia welcomed it eagerly, the U.S. smartphone market ignored this super handset. Мany geeks will say that the N8 wasn’t popular in the U.S. since only its unlocked version was sold and it cost more than carriers’ offers, but anyway…
I understand every country and every mobile operator tries to provide devices that meet the market’s and users’ requirements, but now when Nokia won’t roll out the Nokia N9 in the U.S., I think it will be a loss for the U.S. smartphone users. But probably that’s a part of Nokia’s strategy — to conquer those markets where Android and iOS don’t feel themselves like kings.
