Nokia has scrapped plans to launch the Symbian^3 based X7 handset, which was set to debut on AT&T's network prior to next month's Mobile World Congress event. A source cited by the Wall Street Journal indicated that the launch was canceled because Nokia didn't believe partner AT&T was going to provide enough marketing support and deep enough subsidies for the device to successfully compete with the leading smartphones.

nokia hasn't released a quality handset in the states in years.
This is news why?
By canceling this garbage AT&T has managed to sell as many X7's as if they had launched it, 0.
Garbage? Please let us all know how you know this, oh great Phone insider.
