During the presentation of the Nokia N97, the manufacturer indicated that the phone would be available during the first half of the year 2009 at a price of 550 euros before taxes and subsidies. But half a year is a very wide margin.
Now it might be somewhat more limited following the announcement of an online store, play.com, which has made it available to book during this morning, with a expected departure date for March 31 and a price of 480 pounds, about 530 euros to change. Later, they removed it and now we can point us to get more information we.
And although many times these stores have no actual end dates, in this case the indicated has enough logic, four months after his presentation. The price is much more interesting than the original, because to 550 euros he would add taxes, so do “ well ” the conversion would be much cheaper. And with grants from the operators may have an acceptable cost (not cheap, but it’s a high-end phone).
Anyway, these are not official data, so it could be still changes, as well as being only for the United Kingdom, although we certainly would like that they would be confirmed.
