in romania samsung galaxy s2 is 500 euro and sony-ericsson xperia arc is 450 on grey market. so n9 until it will reach 400 euro, no good
A great phone, but sadly few will buy it. This is the worst marketed device ever made. Declared obsolete on release, and overpriced. Nokia deserve to lose their market share because of this stupidity.

Nokia are donig good job in worlds mpobiles market
who says that it is a DOA phone the blogs? ok so what let the people to choose if it is dead or alive from the sales and pre-orders you think that the only that matters is the number of applications and not the quality of applications the receiving and calling of the device or the browsing i am in Greece and as Nokia say in the website of N9 it will be available here defenetly is my next phone even i consider the Nokia WP i think i will buy the N9 as the last N series Nokia and ofcourse for this beautiful and distinctive UI
limited availability = high price. check economic textbooks.
official statement for unavailability in major markets (western europe) = high profit resale market = even higher prices.
doubtful support = low prices.
So i bet first 3 months prices will be sky-high. Later may drop but very slowly.
also avaliable in Poland (preorder):
ca. 570 euro for 16 GB

Nice $600 paperweight. You can add it right next to your locked at&t i-brick.
Sun Down, 07 Sep 2011Quite reasonable for what it offer IMO. I'd get the 64 GB for sure.I thought you have budget one? The Msia authorised dealer confirm that the 16GB will be below MYR2,000, 64GB 'slightly above' MYR2K. Next week we will know officially
who want to spend ton of money on OS never know that gonna like or not...

Even though Intel reported they will discontinue MeeGo development, I say that the amount of interest on the platform can't let it die. Several manufacturers have pointed out their interest and many consumers are dying to get their hands on this absolutely dreamful phone to get even the smallest bit of experience it provides.

Elop called it dead to avoid competing with Windoze phone.

Because the article points out exactly the same: these two factors will make the price fall. I guess you should read more carefully before commenting.
