Booklet: €579. N900: €500. Pre or Post tax prices?

Tags: , , ,


27173655 No word on availability of the booklet or N900 from the Nokia keynote but a couple of prices:

Booklet: 579 Euros

N900: 500 Euros.

The question is, are these pre-tax prices because the N900 is still available for 599 Euros (503 pre tax)

Update: Three responses on Twitter suggest that Nokia normal quote pre-tax prices.

If tax needs to be added to the Booklet you are looking at 689 Euros fro the Booklet in Germany. Bzzzzzzt!

Nokia announcement on Wednesday

Tags: ,


The predictions were that Nokia World would largely be a software and applications event but Robert Scoble has stirred the pot and seen something else.

I asked “what about the touch screen cell phone that I’ve seen rumors about?” He said that no one had gotten it right yet. He said that even internally only a handful of people have seen the new device they’ll be announcing on Wednesday

‘Device’ he says. Does that mean its not a phone? It may be wishful thinking on my part but maybe it’s the announcement of the new Nokia Tablet. The one with 3G, hi-def camera and a Cortex A8 core on the Ti OMAP platform. Or is that just too small a deal? Are they going to announce something to go head to head with the iPhone? Are both the tablet and the new device one and the same thing. Is this the device that’s going to replace the E90 and see the tablet and phone products coming together for the first time? Somehow I doubt that. Fortunately I’m in the Barcelona timezone so I’ll be looking out for news as it breaks on Wednesday morning. Stay tuned.

Update: This Nokia countdown clock indicates that the announcement might be in the keynote tomorrow morning (0915 GMT+1)
