Lumias Aren't Competitive Enough, Say European Carriers

The Lumia 900 might be selling like hot cakes at AT&T's camp across the ocean, but things don't see so colorful for Nokia in Europe.

Reuters has talked to several European carriers and they are unanimous - Nokia Lumia phones aren't fine enough to be any sort of threat for the iPhone and Android smartphones. And there are several reasons why this is so.

Operators claim Lumia phones are too pricey and bring small innovation to justify that. The lack of proper marketing strategy and the various software bugs have also put some users off.

"No one comes into the store and asks for a Windows phone," assumed an executive in charge of mobile devices at a European operator, where the Lumia 800 and 710 have been available since December last year. The executive also added that "...If the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows, it would be much easier to sell."
