Report: China gets Nokia Lumia 900 on June 16th
WPDang could put a crimp in sales. The site says that the Nokia Lumia 900 will be priced in China at a price above that of the Nokia 808 PureView. The latter is already available for pre-orders at a price of 4,688 CNY, equivalent to $736 USD. Considering that the Nokia 808 PureView has a major selling point with its 41MP camera, one would have expected the Nokia Lumia 900 to be priced below the PureView model.
If the Nokia Lumia 900 is indeed tagged higher than 4,688 CNY, it will come close to the price of the Apple iPhone in the country which is 4,988 CNY ($783 USD). Currently, imports of the Nokia Lumia 900 are being smuggled into the black market for as low as 3,700 CNY which includes all of the functions that will be removed from the Chinese variant of the phone. If the report is legitimate, Nokia might have to review its pricing decision on the model if it wants the Nokia Lumia 900 to be competitive in the country.
