Nokia confirms which nations won’t get the Nokia X
Not only has Nokia gone ahead and announced its rumored Nokia X Android handset, but it exceeded even our expectations, revealing the X alongside the X+ and XL. All three handsets are going to be seriously affordable… that is, assuming you can get your hands on any. Back on Monday, Nokia stated that “the Nokia X will be available to buy immediately in Asia Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle-East and Africa.” OK, but does that mean that it’s coming to other areas later on? And are there going to be more restrictions to its distribution within those regions? Nokia’s been following-up with some more details, explaining just who won’t be seeing the Nokia X showing up in stores nearby.
Nokia clarifies that the Nokia X series of devices “will be available pretty much everywhere except North America, Korea and Japan.” That North American bit we might have assumed from the lack of any earlier mention, but this seals the deal, and also explains how availability will differ by nation in Southeast Asia.
We should also point out that despite Nokia crossing North America off its list there, it has confirmed the phones for Mexico and other Latin American nations, so it must just mean that the US and Canada won’t be seeing them.
