A few days ago, while trawling through pages at Amazon to see how much Nokias were going for these days, my mouth fell open as I saw that the excellent E7 and the superb N8 were being sold at really amazing prices. I tweeted this immediately as I wanted to spread the good news in case any Nokia fans wanted to snap up a bargain on what were I’m certain, limited stocks.
I bought my girlfriend a blue Nokia N8 in January 2011 and it cost me just over $400. I bought myself a Nokia E7 in August 2011 and it cost about the same. Two great phones, but quite pricey off contract, and the only way to really get them as no US carrier offered either of these phones. Why was that? Oh yes that’s right, because they didn’t run Android. Ridiculous.
Anyway, you can now snap up one of these beauties for a super-knock-down price over at Amazon.com. Not sure why the prices are so low for brand new products, but maybe Amazon are clearing a space in the warehouse. Whatever the reason, there’s more reason now to snap up Nokia’s premium landscape qwerty business 4-incher, the beautiful E7, or the phone-camera king of the world (before the 808 was released!) the N8.
Of course, once they’re gone they’re gone, and we should also remember that Amazon prices can fluctuate drastically and frequently, so who knows how long they’ll be at these low prices?
Interestingly, the pink N8 is still up for $499, so as long as you can settle for grey, green, orange or silver, you can spend a little and give someone a superb Christmas prezzie this year.
Will you be buying one of Nokia’s Symbian beasts at these great prices? I would be snapping up a blue E7 from Amazon right this second if I hadn’t already snapped up an almost-mint condition one on eBay recently for around $190. The bargains are out there, and ’tis the season to be buying! 🙂
