AT&T Nokia X7 canceled, might still sell elsewhere
Remember the oft-leaked Nokia X7, that was supposedly going to be sold by AT&T starting this month? Well, according to two separate reports, the Symbian-powered smartphone will not be hitting US shores anymore. So who canceled it, AT&T or Nokia? According to PocketNow, it was the former. According to TheNokiaBlog, the latter.
But, regardless of who, it’s pretty safe to assume that the X7, which was apparently going to get named Nokia Journey, is not going to be sold by AT&T.
Apparently, it was going to be released on February 13, one day before the start of MWC, and not later this month, as previous reports had it. Accessory manufacturers were getting ready to sell made-for-Journey accessories. But then something went wrong.
The Nokia X7 may still get released elsewhere in the world, and be sold by that name (‘Journey’ was probably only ever meant to be used in the American market).
Of course, we’ll probably never find out why this phone was cancelled, but judging by the general impression of Symbian in the US, it’s probably better this way – at least from the point of view of Nokia’s brand value over there.
