Blame Verizon

Given their history, Verizon would never allow an S60 device. It's been mentioned many times that Nokia is far less willing to bend to the will of the carriers in terms of hardware & software modification/neutering, and Verizon is the most demanding in that area. Nokia is the #1 phone maker in the world, so they can afford to ignore 1 carrier in one country, regardless of the size of that country.

Likewise, Verizon will soon be the biggest carrier in the biggest market, with established relationships with all phone makers, so they can easily afford to focus on certain types of devices/software platforms that they want to & exclude any they like.

So yeah. . . tough cookies for VZW people who like S60. Sorry!
