PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

Plus all the AT&T sales people got Lumia 900 for free. The bonus per sold device was higher then for Android. But the problem was, that you got that bonus only if the customer sticked with the phone. If her/him came back cause he was not satisfied with what sales sold there was no bonus. Lumia had and has the highest return rates in Nokia history.

So, yes, the bonus was to low for that device and they should have payed it even in the case of returns.
