T-Mobile decides to cancel the Nokia Nuron 2
Nokia's bad luck continues in the US where they are struggling to keep their brand name prevalent amongst the vast names from the opposition.

Granted that they're still a well known and respected company outside of the US, they've been unable to make a name for themselves within the big four wireless carriers in the US. And yet another blow to their cause, we find T-Mobile USA quickly placing the Nokia Nuron 2 on the chopping block as they've completely stopped any further movement in bringing it to market.

It's hard to say what's the reason behind their decision, but some think it has something to do more with the recent news of rival AT&T potentially getting the Nokia X7 – which is positioned to be the first carrier supported Symbian^3 device to come ashore. Naturally, it fares better in almost every category versus the Symbian^1 platform running on the Nokia Nuron 2.

Regardless of whatever is the reason for its early demise, it quickly shows that Nokia doesn't quite have the star power to sway any of the big four in the US.
