O2 turns down the Nokia N97 after previously declining N96
O2 said it has ‘no plans’ to stock the Nokia N97 directly when it launches later this month.
The decision will make O2 the only network not to sell the phone.
The operator said: ‘The Nokia N97 will be available on O2 through Carphone Warehouse. We have no plans to sell the Nokia N97 through our direct channels.’
The N97 is the next flagship Nseries phone, and will be sold by all other networks when it is released in the UK.
O2 was also the only network to decline the Nokia N96 when it launched in October 2008. The operator conceded to pressure and decided to stock the device one month later.
