I was in Dubai last November and visited the 2 large Malls there.
In a Nokia store I asked about their wp7 phones, and the salesgirl
told me flat out that these are crap and tried to sell me the N9 instead.
None of the other electronics stores carried ANY wp7 phones, but tons
of Android hardware (and even a Blackberry Playbook, which really is
confusing to work with).
