Is the Nokia N97 coming to the US in June for less than $600?
I read over on Mark’s The Nokia Blog site that the Nokia N97 may be arriving at reseller facilities on 2 June. This is an estimated date and doesn’t mean that they will ship out to buyers on that date so I don’t think people should get their hopes up too high just yet. That is a pretty ambitious time frame for availability and appears to be just when about when the Palm Pre is coming (June 6th) and new iPhone(s) may be announced (June 8th).
As you can also see in the screenshot on Mark’s page, the price listed is $5xx.xx compared to the $699 list price. However, this price may be the price that retailers have to pay and since they have to make some kind of profit it still may be priced over $600 for the consumer.
