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'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).

That's good to hear. I guess it's "exclusive" in the sense that there's no subsidized/locked version from another carrier here. At least, I don't recall Globe or Sun promoting the N9.
