    It's not because I am impatient. It's because of what I had expected from Nokia and any other phone provider. Isn't it widely known that unbranded phones get their updates first, since they are "pure"? How come it takes longer for an update to arrive on a pure un-modified phone? I don't get that.

    And since when is the U.S. more important than the rest of the world? (No offense intended - I am thinking in terms of population count)

    I would be okay with a week delay. Or maybe two. But why is this delay even here to begin with, and why with that insane duration? It's crazy.

    I hope the rumors of the RM-821 going up on the servers right now are true.

    Hopefully it does not come that late, but if it does i'll understand if you jumped ship. I believe the US gets more attention with these things because US spends more money than any other country.

    That's a pretty okay theory, but unless you have something to back it up, I will still assume that the rest of the world spends more money than the U.S. in that case.

    So to you it's perfectly fine to not have an explanation? Wouldn't you be interested in knowing why an update that requires way more testing and approval for a branded, unpure device comes before an update for a pure, unbranded device?

    Finnish people are not getting anything either until Feb.
    I promise myself that if I'm not getting the update before the end of the year, I'll never, ever buy another Nokia product, EVER.
    And Mr. Elop: you are not welcome here in Finland. You are free to take Nokia with you to where you're from and nobody will shed a single drop of tear!
