Holy Crap! That cost more than an Android phone! Actually, that cost more than the 16 GB iPhone 4 ($859)! Hopefully, other retailers will sell it at a cheaper price.

Oh wait never mind... $865 is USD... So it's still cheaper than an iPhone 4.

what are you talking about? Unlocked iCrap 4 16GB is only $650 in Apple store
8. Muaha (unregistered)
That's if you live in the US. I live in Australia. That's how much the iPhone 4 16 GB cost here.

hey i heard nokia has another phone called N950 for Meego. But it has been released for developers only. Looks very sexy.

well nokia's gonna nokia. they have consistently made the worst decisions possible ever since the begining of consumer smartphones, and they don't seem to be stopping any time soon.

No. They have been doing stupid decisions after Mr. Eflop became CEO.

Everyone knows pre-orders are usually OVERPRICED. Why bother?

guys so cheap LOL. An iCrap 32GB in Brazil is R$ 2400 = U.S.D 1250, and 16GB is R$1800= U.S.D 870. A Samsung Galaxy s II R$ 2100 = U.S.D 1050 so why you are complaining? You guys are so lucky. A simple N8 costs 700 U.S.D in Brazil

No one pays RRP in Australia anyway so that price is meaningless and is just a guide.
There are stores right now that have it up for preorder for around $690 AUD in Australia.

this phone's a mid-level phone at best, even by today's standards. 1ghz single-core processor? normal amoled display? 1450mah battery? give me a break.

Its being released and then set up, to fail. Then the decision to go wp7 will look unavoidable. Sad, as it looks fantastic and meego could have been nokias new OS for the future. Millions spent on development, down the drain.

Doesn't matter, the OS will be supported in one way or another...it uses resources too effectively regardless of the cpu. Plus, Alien Dalvik will change the amount of apps available to the phone. Who knows what else can be done with the open source of the OS. N900 was just starters and it evolved quite well. It's a different phone from the tag along masses and thats whats so great about it. I won't own a phone that's popular for the wrong reasons.

Awesome ad BTW... IT will be like $650 by the end of the month it launches...
