Nokia N8 available for US pre-order, end September availability
I went to the Nokia USA to pre-order my Nokia N8 and saw you can now do so for $549. I may eventually place this order just to ensure I get one to write about here, but I really want an orange or green or blue model with the orange being my first choice. Thus, I may try to find one from outside the US since they all have penta-band 3G support and should be the same around the world. It may cost me a bit more, but $549 for a SIM-unlocked powerful device like this is very reasonable. For comparison, the iPhone 4 is priced at $599 for 16GB and $699 for 32GB with no support for T-Mobile 3G.
I hope Amazon kicks off their N8 pre-orders soon too since I have some gift card cash sitting there waiting to be spent on a device. Any readers going to pre-order this dark grey model?
UPDATE: I placed my order ($611 with tax and shipping) and can’t wait for it to arrive. I will be getting some hands-on time with it at Nokia World in September so stay tuned for that coverage too.
