N9 is high end, and is carrier uncontrolled.
N9 is the exception that proves the rule: it was designed by a company with excellent relationship with non-US carriers but at the time when it was actually presented these relationships deteriorated.
That happens (see Palm, RIM, etc), you are correct. I admit my mistake: I only think about somewhat sustainable trends, when some company finds the seed money do develop something only to fail in marketplace these rules don't apply, obviously.
Same story would be with Jolla handset for sure.
If I understand correctly Jolla works with Chinese carriers. We'll see how much what it does will be influenced by them.
