> They aren't even bothering to go after the US market. They're focusing on smaller, less competitive markets like China, Europe, and North Africa.
The US is the smaller market compared to China.
You can even blame Nokia, for throwing away their business in Asia and Africa with Symbian, just to try to capture the smaller US market with Windows Phone. And they even hardly succeed with that.
I expect Jolla to sell quite good in China, and hopefully somewhat in Europe too.
