PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This rumour is not new, nor is it particularly earth-shattering. However, with Windows Phone 7 failing to make a dent in the market place, and Nokia's Lumia 800 not making huge waves either, the rumour's been taken out of the shed again: Microsoft is supposedly acquiring Nokia's smartphone division later this year. Stephen Elop will resign from Nokia shortly afterwards.

Why can't you get an N9?

It is only sold in a few selected countries. Plus it is bloody expensive.

It's available here in the Philippines (possibly exclusively from Smart, though; I'm on Globe's network), but yeah, it's pricey. Why exactly did Nokia limit availability?

A couple of Norwegian chains sell it at NOK 2699 including VAT, which is a tiny bit cheaper than the iPhone 3GS.

I'm in the U.S. and got an N9 yesterday off of Amazon. There are plenty of places to get it, you just won't be able to subsidize it through your carrier.

I live in the USA, and Nokia only sells the N9 in select overseas markets to avoid cannibalizing sales of their WinP7 phones, which are also not available in the USA yet.

Such is what passes for logic at Elop's Nokia... *sigh*
