UK retailer Clove stopped pre-orders for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3310 at HMD's request

UK retailer Clove stopped pre-orders for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3310 at HMD's request
Yesterday, we told you that UK retailer Clove had stopped accepting pre-orders for the Nokia 3310 feature phone, and had resumed taking pre-registrations. While a pre-order reserves a phone for the consumer who puts down money to make sure that a unit is held for him/her at launch, a pre-registration simply alerts the consumer via email when pre-orders are starting. Yesterday, there was concern by some Clove customers that  pre-orders were canceled, although that doesn't seem to be the case.

An email sent out by Clove to customers today states that the pre-order option was taken down, not just for the Nokia 3310, but also for the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5. HMD, the company that makes the devices and licenses the Nokia name, felt that Clove had advertised the pre-order option too soon and requested that it be taken down. Clove said that pre-order demand for all three phones was very high.

Clove indicates that the pre-order option could be back up as soon as this coming weekend, and adds that the expected launch date of mid-June is accurate. Clove says that HMD could have some concrete dates to announce soon. The retailer was taking pre-orders for the equivalent of $67 USD before taxes for the Nokia 3310. The Nokia 3 pre-orders were priced at the equivalent of $162 USD pre-tax, and the Nokia 5 had a pre-tax pre-order price equivalent to $205 USD.

Mystery solved.
