In the Nokia UK online shop

Nokia fans the wait is finally over. Nokia UK Online Shop is now accepting pre-orders for the much anticipated Nokia N96 flagship phone. Surprisingly, the price is lower(£535.00) than the expected price of £600 – £700 as been quoted by many several sites. So it won’t take long until october for this phone to be on the shelves. The main reasons for this price lowdown and an much more earlier release may be well attributed to many things – this will be explained after the hop.

In my insights about this, there are several factors that affected the price and launch date. These are the following.

1.) The new iPhone 3G already went out last week in several countries. So if I were Nokia, I would do the same plan of making the N96 released much more earlier. Perhaps, who wants to lose potential customers? Anyone?

2.) There is a certain hype surrounding among three new announced high-end phone – namely the SE C905, Samsung INNOV8 and the LG KC910. All of them got an 8 Megapixel snapper.

3.) Lastly, the others would think the N96 would be pitted as outdated if they would release it on a later date.
