15:04 Expansys now offering the black Nokia 808 for £485 All About Symbian
Following the farcical situation at Amazon, where the black Nokia 808 was almost £70 more than the white one, the black version is now in stock at Expansys, and at £485, which seems a lot more sensible than £550. There's free shipping within the UK as well, plus E...
