[Windows Blog] Lumia 920/820 Coming EXCLUSIVELY to AT&T (for 6 months) - Page 10

Now either hop on to at&t to get the phone or not!. either go buy an xbox to get halo or not. either go out and buy ps3 for uncharted, or not. either go out and buy wii for mario or not.
my point is, All these exclusive products for certain consoles fit well into the business market, and are good for everyone. It doesn't make sense from a business stand point to make every phone available for every cellphone carrier. You need exclusive perks to make the consumer feel like one carrier has more meaning when they get exlusive products.
So it's the same comparison to microsoft exclusive counsole games aswell. do you really see "halo" hurting for market share becuase it's not available for the other counsole game carriers?
Just to further refine my point, The iphone was exclusive to at&t for over a year, at the time of release. Did you see sales even once, affect the iphone being limited to at&t? I'm pretty sure nokia knows what they are doing, and it's not going to hurt them,consumers, or microsoft in the business market. smile.gif

 

 

Your wrong, bcuz Nokia always sells their phones outright, u get to choose the carrier. That will be the same here in the States after AT&T gets done with their exclusive marketing scheme..!

 

Nokia banked their whole company off the 800 & 920...   they want to sell as many phones as they can.. limiting themsevles to a half-baked 4G network isn't going to do well for them. As Verizon has the best 4G netowrk peroid and Nokia wants their 4G phones on their network too, but Verizon isn't going to give Nokia a lump sum to fool people into buying into their network, because they have nothing to hide and nobody to fool.

 

AT&T needs new customers and locking them to a 2-year deal using Nokia phones is worth the upfront cost (payed out to Nokia) for an exclusive 32 day right.

 

 

 

 

How many people bought iPhones under AT&T, but could not stand the service and jumped shiped the moment their contract was up?

(Nearly everyone I know, left AT&T...)

You do realize that most carriers are compatable with using the new nokia phone on thier network.... The nokia 920 is not locked down to at&t only. You can buy it unlocked and use it on most carrier networks that are using LTE smile.gif

Yeah, just shell out $800 for an unlocked phone, what's the big deal?

Compared to most of the people on this forum who spend thousands of dollars on pc equipment, it's really no big deal at all smile.gif

Considering the windows 8 phone is revolutionary, very innovative, and will be a must have device, then who cares about the price other then the average joe.

I had already made up my mind about purchasing this, regardless of what carrier had the exclusivity rights, and price of the device.

lol, THE AVERAGE JOE is EXACTLY the person we are talking about (aka, MOST people).

You just said that it doesn't matter to most people on these forums, and maybe you are right. But the people on these forums, or "tech-savvy" people do NOT make up the majority of the market share! The average show does!

Are you following now?

Relax. I'm sure at&t will market it aggressively enough to sell it the "average joe" Who is better off sticking to the more simplier iphone anyways.

Yes, I just said that^..

 

I don't care about carrirers... as we talking Nokia, whom always have allowed their hardware to remain for sale. You buy it and take it where u want..

 

 

It is only here in America (thats so impoverished from the Banks), that people must look for packaged deals, instead of owning the situation and buying their hardware and choosing their carrier. But most people don't have the backbone, nore the income to deny the marketing.

 

 

But, none of that^ is what I/we are discussing about, in terms of exclusivitivity. As AT&T's deal is LIMITED exclusitivity..

I never understand phone exclusivity on a carrier. It makes no sense, make your phone more accessible and let the carriers compete in terms of pricing, plans and service coverage. Not phones.

Samsung knows how to do a international and national launch on all four major carriers (including regional ones such as U.S. Cellular)

Yea, except that is a desktop computer. This is a phone. I wouldn't spend over $300 on any phone. Especially when I can get a subsidized price of the usual $200.

I just hope the Nokia ends up on verizon by March.
