Snippet: Pricing and Availability May Vary ☇

Shared on September 13, 2012

Dan Frommer on SplatF gives a few possible reasons why Apple announced pricing and available and Motorola, Nokia, and Amazon didn’t:

  • Nokia didn’t announce the price or ship date for either of its new Lumia Windows phones.
  • Google didn’t announce either the price or ship date for two of its three new Motorola phones.
  • Amazon announced pricing and ship dates for all of its new Kindles.

It just makes sense to announce pricing and ship dates as soon as they’re known. So why don’t all companies do this?

Without giving away everything from Dan’s excellent list of reasons, carriers and delays often play a role. Surprised?
