Nokia UK joins the N97 pre-order news queue

Nokia has announced that the much anticipated N97 is going to be available to pre-order online later today priced at £499 (inc VAT, SIM free) from the Nokia Online Shop, though no shipping date has been set yet. As we know, the Nokia N97 will also be the first device to feature (in its firmware) the Ovi Store, which is set to go live in the next week. The N97 will be available in black and white variants.

Read on in the full article.

It does say 'later today' in the news release..... i.e. not 'now'. Bizarre way to announce things though, Nokia. Next time, wait another 12 hours and then say 'hey, it's here NOW' etc. 8-)

Question

I've seen lots of news posts, etc, about the N97 NAM version pre-order. I don't know if I have missed something but why is it that the NAM version is cheaper than 500 and they get a bt headset too, for free!! =/
Is there a possibility of them throwing in freebies for the UK? Or maybe a discount code? Also, why is there no stylus listed in the accessories? Its listed on the NAM pre-order page but not for the UK........
Stella.

I'm disappointed UK get no free extras
US get a free BT ear piece and also stylus included
France get a load of free stuff which is 2 n-gage games(spore & brain challenge) , 25 free songs and 12 month navigation license, for 1euro extra number of tracks rises to 100

Well, NAM actually isn't cheaper.
Minus 15% VAT and the price is 425. Which is actually quite a bit cheaper than the US
And then some states have a sales tax which isn't included in the 500, although for online shopping pretty much only the state where Nokia are based will need to pay.

Although no free gifts!

i was never questioning the price just whats included in the box, any way going by online Nokia shop in US you are definitely getting more for you money with the free gifts added than any other region

Just check the link below and you will probably stop complaining about prices in the UK...

http://kauppa.nokia.fi/nokia-fi/prod...=4006930&ftt=1

That's how much residents of Finland have to pay: EUR 729,00!
While in the UK: EUR 560,00! Aren't we all in the EU?
Unbelievable... and that is Nokia's home country, probably the most expensive place to get a Nokia! hehe
I am a foreigner residing in Finland for some years now. The funny thing is that none of the 5 nokia phones I had during my time here were purchased in its home land. That's t beauty of t internet shops and global commerce...

have you not read the comments correctly its not about the money its about what's in the box
I'd be more than happy to pay a extra 30 Euro to make price same as in spain
in Spain they get 125 euro music voucher for that extra 30 Euro

I've emailed Nokia about the stylus......I think it should be included with the phone, but I don't know, I just want to find out for sure.
A cloth phone case would be nice too, or maybe something like the one that comes with the 5800..... =D I doubt we'll get one thrown in though.

Unhappy Email from Nokia

I emailed Nokia yesterday asking if the UK N97 comes with a stylus and this was the response:-

"Dear Stella,

Thank you for contacting Nokia Care.

Greetings to you. I hope all is well with you.

In response to your email, the sales package content of your Nokia N97 are as per the list below:

- Nokia N97
- Nokia Battery (BP-4L)
- Nokia Travel Charger (AC-10)
- Nokia Connectivity Cable (CA-101)
- Nokia Wired Headset (AD-54, HS-45)
- Nokia Charger adapter (CA-146)
- Cleaning cloth

For more information on the Nokia N97, kindly refer to the weblink given below:

http://europe.nokia.com/n97/technicalspecifications

I hope the above helps.

Have a nice day!"

I'm guessing this means we don't get the stylus?
