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.

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?

It makes WinP7 look bad.

Nokia limited the availability to prevent it from competing with the Lumia.

It's not exclusive to Smart. The Nokia stores sell those at $500-$600 (Php 22.5K-27.5K) depending on the storage (16-64GB I think).

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.

In other words there is no option to shoot yourself in the foot and get ripped off by your carrier.
