Sold on an unlocked basis at this point, the un-subsidized $650 price tag is sure to scare some off, especially since you will be laying out that hard earned cash for a device that will run on 3G if and only if T-Mobile can come to the bargaining table with Nokia and work out a deal. And yeah, you will get your 3G if that happens, but you will have missed getting the phone for a much cheaper, subsidized price that would be sure to follow an agreement. In the business world, that is a lose-lose situation. But we digress. Just looking at the device and watching what it can do, it looks like Nokia has a winner on its hands and it would be quite a feather in the cap of T-Mobile if they could get the first crack at offering the unit in the States.
