Okay, we've played this game before,
but that was almost three
years ago. This time, Nokia's really
leaving Japan, and they're taking their fancy luxury phones with them. Actually, Nokia's high-end Vertu
phones were all it had left in the land of the rising sun, and even those were only readily available in Tokyo's Shibuya and Ginza districts -- so out of Japan by the end of July? No problem. The phones may be gone by August, but the Finnish firm will retain offices in Tokyo through the end of the year to manage refunds, tidy up, and bid farewell to the robot loving maidens
of Tokyo's commercial district.
