Redmond was clearly anticipating Nokia doing something this stupid. Thus the development of their own WP8 hardware.
...we are talking about two countries where Nokia is doing this. UK and USA.
Rest of the globe doesn't even need to even think about these kind of things. Also Lumia 920 will be sold via China Mobile, world largest carrier with 630 billion subs in a world largest smartphone market. HTC does not have any phone via China Mobile and sales wise that actually matters.
So happy i don't ever need to bother with these things or to be locked in some carriers paying horrible data costs.
