Stop complaining, US Nokia N8 price is lowest around
We are now less than a week before Nokia World and pre-orders for the Nokia N8 have now begun in the UK. As you can clearly see in Rafe’s post over on All About Symbian, the $549 pre-order price we see here in the US is the lowest of all of the countries where you can pre-order the N8. Unfortunately for some of us, including me, I am also hit with 10% sales tax on top of the $549 price. This is still less than I have paid before for SIM free phones and after checking out several carrier branded phones it is worth it to get pristine smartphones that are designed to work as the manufacturers originally designed them to work.
As I stated in my previous N8 pre-order post, the Nokia N8 is cheaper than the iPhone 4 that is still locked to AT&T. It will sure be nice when people start looking at the full unsubsidized prices so we can compares apples to apples to see the value of devices.
