Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Finland is Nokia. Nokia is Finland. I've traveled to quite a few number of countries this year, and the only place where I see Lumia phones is this chunk of ice that I call home. According to the Finnish business publication Taloussanomat, who references data from IDC, Q1 2013 was the first quarter where mobile phones from the South Korean handset maker Samsung outsold those designed in Espoo. If that's not alarming, I don't know what is." Ouch.

Perhaps because sim-only contracts have much higher call rates?

(Then again, at least here in Hungary, if an S3-category phone is offered for free, you'd have to take the most expensive contract with a monthly fee so high you'd be almost better off just buying the phone for full price + taking a cheap contract.)
