It has been confirmed that the low cost X series will not be available in US, Canada, Japan and Korea
Bad news for the Nokia fans out there in the US, Canada, Korea, and Japan, the Mobile Phone marketing Vice President Jussi Nevanlinna has given a confirmation on the availability of Nokia. The three devices from the Nokia's X series will not be available in the aforementioned countries. The Nokia X will now be available for purchase in other countries for €89 whereas the Nokia X+ (€99) and Nokia XL (€109) will launch in early Q2 2014.
Though this was quite evident from the press release of Nokia X series but some people would still have missed the hint in the press material which only shed light on the launch dates for the Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
This left a lot of confusion as to whether the devices will reach other markets or not but we have a confirmation on their availability now. We are guessing the reason for this was the high end market segments in these countries which are way developed for such low cost smartphones.
But it also greatly depends on the brand; if we were talking about an Android phone of the same built and features and even cost, it definitely would be noticed regardless of what the country is.
