Though only the deal between Nokia and world’s largest operator China Mobile has got much publicity, but great news is Nokia got a deal with China Unicom as well, which is world’s third largest operator. While Lumia 920T is exclusive to China Mobile, Lumia 920 is coming to Unicom. This is excellent for Nokia’s prospects in China.
Now, confirming China’s importance in Nokia’s plans, CEO Elop has said in an interview that China, the world’s largest smartphone market is expected to be the biggest single market for Lumia phones.
Unlike USA, where Nokia has sort of made Lumia 920 sales impact much limited due to AT&T exclusivity, getting both Lumia 920T and Lumia 920 at world’s largest and 3rd largest operators may be really kind of push Nokia needs here.
Thanks dojobi for the heads-up. Cheers!!
