The pre-release retail price is almost Always higher than the actual price when the item arrives in stock. I've seen it happen numerous times, and is probably mostly because of the fluctuation of the market (so they set a heftier price for pre-orders to safe haven themselves from doing a loss-affair).
As long as they have not had it in stock earlier, don't drape yourself in the guideline price tag.
Nokia behaviour it's like a white person went to Africa and when coming to some local Africam market everybody for that white european tourist gonna to sale products 5 or even 10 times higher that gonna to sale for herself's...
I was debating between the N8 and E7. Then I looked at both phones, what the package contains and at the history Nokia has with communicator type phones. The communicator type phones were always more expensive than anything else and this time Nokia kind of missed it. It will not be 700 euros but more expensive than the N8. Moreover, no expansion slot? What were they thinking?
700 euro are you crazy nokia, what the hell i should do with these phone it's nothing more than a c6 but with new look, oh man nokia is so going down next year, android is the real business now, symbian go to trash,
Wew, 24 Nov 2010This going to be a time bomb for Nokia if they continue with this price..This is confirmed dealer price in Finland... just got order confirmation
This going to be a time bomb for Nokia if they continue with this price..
700 euro? Nokia are you nuts!!! Nobody will by that shit..
Miss Nokia you deserve all what happen to you in the last year ppl are smart & can judge your products seems your developers are rich you pay them too much so you sale high no thanks Nokia fail
Thanks to GSM where open our eyes day by day
wat?even the iphone4 cost 600euros 700 euros is a complete rip off it may be a gd phone but not a fantastic phone why so much who wld buy it wen the best phone on the market is like 600
damn i wont be payin 700 euro for this shyt ! where android and ios are proving them selves in marets !
and folks, heres nokia's biggest problem. Delays and Price. There is absolutely no reason why this phone should cost so much. 700 euro probably is around $900-$1000 for a limited phone with a qwerty. There are better phones out for muuuch cheaper. I REALLY like nokia but they must fix that.

The features and some what usage is for business people and knowing Nokia if its for business price adjustment is possible when comes to business phones..
Looks like there going to launch it at the same time fixed the major bugs of Symbian^3.. E Series are for business use and if E7 fails to satisfy the business user's then its a major lose to Nokia inspite the reputation of E series..
Another delay. What's up this time this time another defective main board??????
Nokia Nokia Nokia Nokia
What did you expect the price to be? N8 was 370 before taxes and everything and now its 500, so taxes 130 €... Since E7 is 500 € before taxes, taxes should be a little more then N8, so about 150-160€... And it comes to 660€, which isn't much cheaper then 700€...
What i can't understand is why is it so much more expensive then N8? It has bigger screen and qwerty, but then, N8 has better camera and a memory card slot... And with the E7 you dont get micro-to-normal USB cable (for USB OTG) and no micro-to-normal HDMI adapter... Other things are very similar... IMO N8 is better, and don't really understand so big price difference...

I'm not going to buy a Ferrari, and then complain that it doesn't work well on my off-road track, so it must be a bad car... be rational

I use my Desire HD very regulary to take quick photograph of notes, papers, drawings, invoices for instant sharing or backup (for IF I should loose the piece of paper)
I could not live without this functionality.
IMO, Nokia still makes lovely phones. I'm absolutely in love with the N8 and the E7 (C6 or C7, no thank you though) BUT they're just too expensive. Comparing the devices to other phones. The N8 should absolutely not be more than 400 euro's, just like the E7 should be...
