As an American who's lived in Europe the last 20 years, and has a fascination with PDA's and smartphones I'd like to know why Nokia doesn't have a better presence in North American. They make great phones (I've been a fan since the days of "non-smart" phones (dumb phones??)) and I don't see why the brand isn't better known in the US.
Last year when I needed a smartphone with WiFi, e-mail, and anything but Windows OS, I found the E71 to be by far the best choice. And after 7 months, I still feel that way.
So what's the deal? Too many deals from Apple and RIM that won't let carriers in N. America offer products from others? Unfamiliarity with the brand (could be the case - people there still call it "NoKIa")? Or something else?
