This is for the people who complain about Nokia's phone...
distributor in Thailand to open reserve Nokia 5800 11390 bath (290 us dollars).
From the Tube 5800 dot com Blog:
"Nokia 5800 XpressMusic just before getting ready to hit shelves on Nokia Stores created lot of chaos everywhere with their declared prices in Spain and Italy. The pre-booking price displayed on these official sites is 429 Euros instead of 279 Euros (without taxes) which was originally promised by Nokia.
The potential buyers were shocked, stunned and disappointed to see their long awaited Nokia 5800 listed at 429 EUR. They found it simply unacceptable and shameful act of Nokia to not keep its promise on the pricing. However, the clouds of confusions looks like clearing off now with some good news that came our way this evening.
According to the official information, Eldar Murtazin on LiveJournal got from Nokia, the base price of the phone is still €279, but each country is free to bundle additional goodies with it.
Nokia Spain bundled the 5800 trendy with their 100 Euro voucher for Nokia Music Store and 3 month subscription of Nokia Maps (Voice) Navigation service, and thus the price increased. The other countries which are ready to launch Nokia 5800 XpressMusic this season may follow the suit too.
Another reason for this twist in pricing is probably to stop grey market sales in this Christmas season. The grey market sellers just can’t grab a bunch of Nokia 5800 sets from a neighbor country to sell in their local grey market to make loads of money, just like they did with Iphone. They will probably not go for it if they have to overpay well over 100 EUR for the stuff they can’t use in another country.
But this pricing scheme will hopefully come to an end when Nokia 5800 starts shipping worldwide in early 2009. It will become unbundled again and prices will come down to €279 (plus taxes) as promised earlier. So if you are not so desperate enough to grab the smartphone this holiday season, its better to wait for prices coming down very soon."
I think I'll get a car instead.
nokia has lot of humour
i m sure some people will buy it
wow so expensive. But its screen is 3.0 inch.so large..its suit with it price.and also run symbian s60 ver.3.2 fully touch operation ..i hope 5800 better than iphone..thanx to nokia coz design phone follow the nowadays trend
lol?? so many people weak in the head ??
the online store seller increase the price to earn christmas present, this simple thing also donno
if really 900US, why some online store sales only 500-560US??? clone 5800XM??
YES i totally agree! I still remember got once when N79 and N85 launch GSM said nothing special! but later on, Sony's weak device G705 launch, GSM say until they can fly when the specs is ehhh? useless whats more it's using it's own device. and they DIDNT mention that the BIG NOKIA BOUGHT OVER SONY UIQ! they only say part of it.
and one more thing, NOKIA Nseries like N81, N82, N91, N85 have alot better music quailty then SONY yet they claims that SONY is better? and dont u guys finds that they audio quality chart is always not the same??? Sometime Good, Sometime very good? eh, the phone got mood swing when playing music? GSMARENA just accept the fact that NOKIA is still number 1.
...i mean, seriously, it's common sense that with all the hype they built on the device, that they'd take advantage of its release to get the most profits. the price is outrageous, but i don't even blame nokia for this. common. sense.
it's called patience, people...the same article said the price can dramatically drop in a couple of months. stave off the give-it-to-me-right-now attitude a little bit and maybe learn the good it can do for you
wow too expensive
The main complain by users they said that the navigation through the phone options take ages
if it compared with iphone it becomes piece of crap
sorry just checked it again m the price is $1000 AU, which is still a rip off... who ever wants this phone shud wait a bit like other ppl said, the price will go down its just cause of xmas....
$ 900, and look what's written before that, SLIGHTLY MORE THAN, :D hahaha, man that's really too much, we should wait a bit for the price to go down.
