UK carriers won’t offer a subsidized Nokia 808 PureView


If you are a UK resident, hoping to get the 41MP of camera goodness that is the Nokia 808 PureView at a nicely subsidized price, we have some bad news for you. None of the British carriers will be offering the Symbian smartphone, so getting it SIM-free will be your only option.

O2, Three and Everything Everywhere (which is the company behind the UK branches of Orange and T-Mobile) have all confirmed that they won’t be carrying the device and so has Vodafone Britain. Virgin Mobile UK has left the door open for further negotiations with Nokia stating that it won’t be offering the Nokia 808 PureView “yet”, but you shouldn’t get your hopes too high.

It’s obvious that carriers prefer to subsidize smartphones running on data-hungry platforms like iOS, Android and Windows Phone and the expensive data plans that go with those, so we guess turning a deaf ear to the Nokia 808 PureView was expected. Symbian is not exactly the preferred OS for those who like to constantly stay connected, so carriers have little return on its investments in it.
