another nice mobile from Nokia.But as usual high price.Samsung & HTC offer better than nokia every time.
No one is likely to pay 700€ for this. The original asking price for this device was set correctly. Any higher and people will go for the E and N series in all likelyhood due to the comprehensive feature set they offer. People are unwilling to pay a premium for a touch screen device simply because it's 'touch screen'.
i dont want it !
there are better and cheaper
and I am sick of the firmware updates to do all the time with all the smartphones from nokia
700 Euro? Unbelievable.
I hope it will be 280 euro (Or less!) next year.
This phone is in Germany 399€!!!
Actually this is the 3rd or 4th okia touch screen phone i can recall, the news is that is the first S60 touch, the others were S90, like the 7700 and the 7710 or the 6708.
paulash_leo, 27 Nov 2008the price is so high (abnormal).wi-hi device make the price high.in the country like banglades... moreI am from Bangladesh!and we need wifi!every single day i frowse with my n79 from my versity through wifi!the speed is almost 1.5 mb per second!
and another thing!most of the nseries has wifi but their price is not that much!so it's a myth that wifi increases the cost of the phone by much!
No_Scream, 27 Nov 2008Hi all, I don't think we all should screaming over the high price. The high price at the la... moreno one woul wait 5-6 months for a phone to get to its original price!if nokia fails to deliver it early in just price then the product would be a huge flop!
well i love nokia and congrats to them that they finally brought it out!(though i was afaraid of another n96 story!)but still 700 euro and 900 bucks is way too much for this phone!
the price was the major attraction of the phone and if nokia fail to deliver on that end then it's a shame that the set wil dfall flat on its face just like n96!
the price is so high (abnormal).wi-hi device make the price high.in the country like bangladesh we dont need wi-fi but we want that 5800 so we have to wait until ......price of 5800=400usd.
Ryo Jin, 27 Nov 2008Very very expensive phone like Sony Ericsson Xperia. Absolutely not "Value for money". Only fa... morei'm a fanboy
and i couldn't wait for this fone to come out
but then theprice vas round 300 eur and that is an exelent price for this kind ofphone
but i'm not gonna give 700 EUR for this fon
i mean relly
were they thinking at all when they put on this price
and i agree with someone who said that nokia maybe isnt selling TUBE for this price
but the sellers were just waitin for an exelent phone over price it and make some extra cash
but until this phone's price come around at least 350 eur
its not worth it
No_Scream, 27 Nov 2008Hi all, I don't think we all should screaming over the high price. The high price at the la... moreWhat "elites"? be serious. it's not Gresso or The Meridist or Vertu. it's not even a fashion phone and in this rate...that "elite" will see the same phone model they have at any street corner ... so much for the "elite"
This is crap! all stores are looking for huge profits from this phone. In conclusion..i don't think this model will sell very well at this price. over-over-over-rated !
By the time this phone hits most of the market the price will be lest than US$600...Before Christmas...
I don't think we all should screaming over the high price. The high price at the launch is normal. There were somekind of elites that really happy to say "I have it first, you just follow me buying that phone, because you envy me". Well, I'm not that kind of person, but I have a friend who were like that.
Anyway, if you wait 2 weeks, the price usually went down around 10%, after 2-3 months after launching, the price will see the first dip. around 25%. After 5-6 months the price will be 'normal'. That is the time I would buy the phone. Because after 5-6 month, the price will only erode around 5%/quarter.
I'm really looking forward the E-series got the S60 release 5. But, in the mean time, problably around feb-march 2009 I would buy the E71.
My hard-earned 2 cents ;)
Stop people , couldt u read its jst da promote price , it likely get lower
Nokia doesn't consider the U.S. market very important, since it has the lowest market share (compared with Europe or Asia). That's why Nokia phones are launched lately in the U.S. I'm from Romania, and most Nokia phones are announced earlier than in the U.S. or other countries (5800 is an exception). But don't despair, U.S. citizens, take a look at Samsung or HTC (Touch Diamond and MAX 4G are exceptions), they prefer launching a lot of U.S.-exclusive phones.
As i thought it is so priced where are all the people gone who were dying to get hands on it , anyways Nokia made a laughing stock of all of us
I love Nokia and thinks it's the best. However, a price like this is just unbelievable even if the phone is one of the best ones out there.
Such Irony in the phone name. The "Tube" at that price is going to go down the "Tube"!! LOL!!!!!!
