Thanks Marty for the tip. πŸ™‚

  • WOW!! Nokia 6 isn’t priced high in US. Infact, its Rs.245/- cheaper in US πŸ˜› BTW is the price inclusive of taxes?

    • It’s retail price, so I guess tax should be included.

    Stipe, can you guys reach out to HMD and find out why no Sprint/ATT ? Are there plans to get full coverage ?

    • I sent a mail the mail to the Company that does PR for HMD in the U.S. Will notifiy you with the response πŸ˜€

      • marty farrell

        Thanks Stipe ! This is great news having the 6 out in the US.

        • PR team replied with a generic response saying that only T-Mo and AT&T are supported. The carriers use different Technologies. Two use GSM, two CDMA. I think we will see a CDMA version as well.

            We know the carriers use different bands…jeez…this is stunningly bad optics…this is NOT what is expected from a Nokia product and HMD is being obtuse if the don’t realize this is not how to handle the situation. Do they think reviewers, phone sites and the public are dopes ?

            Full coverage is simply expected. I am baffled and as a shareholder reassessing.

          • I agree. The thing I dislike most is bad PR agencies. I asked a follow up about the model number of the phone, and they sent the whole spec sheet to me. Thery’re still a Young company, so I guess time is needed before everything falls in its place.

          • marty farrell

            Contact HMD, they must know about you guys. Simply go around the PR bobos to the Movers.

            Stipe, please give it a another shot…I think they will be hearing a lot of noise/feedback about this.

          • Done. πŸ™‚

          • CDMA is still a thing? Never heard about CDMA for many years now. Our 1st cellphone connection at home was a CDMA that too 10 years ago. πŸ™‚ I didn’t knew USA still had CDMA service providers. πŸ™‚ only 1 or 2 in India that too with a very small subscriber base i think.

          • marty farrell

            Yeah, it is still around for a few more years.

            Mostly Sprint and Verizon in the US. Incremental cost to HMD to have coverage on CDMA is a rounding error…losing more that half of US market is not…I am certain that Motorola did not think twice about this issue.
