Nokia has confirmed in a statement to mocoNews that the N9 will not be coming to the UK.

As an organisation Nokia takes a market by market approach to product rollout and each country decides which products to introduce from those available. These decisions are based on a local assessment of existing and upcoming products that make up Nokia’s product portfolio and are intended to provide the best local portfolio for the UK market. Although we are delighted with the very positive reception that the Nokia N9 has received, here in the UK there are no plans to offer the Nokia N9 at present.

It makes sense with Nokia abandoning the MeeGo platform, and focusing on the Windows Phone market, but there are plenty of MeeGo lovers still out there this will upset, and if it’s not headed to the US or the UK (you can bet it will be slim pickings in Europe) then why release it at all?
