Well, with so much praise and apparent demand, it’s just a shame really that Nokia couldn’t up the ante and actually make enough of these to sell to customers. It’s all good making a desirable product, but it’s even better when you can put that in the hands of consumers, no? No point at all making the most innovative smartphone if you’re too damn slow to make them and put them out to market whilst people still want them. Ah, that’s Nokia for you. Always making things difficult for themselves.
