The Nokia N8 has started shipping in other countries and though there’s no specific date for local release, Nokia Philippines has put up an email alert for those interested to get the news as soon as it’s out.
The Nokia N8 is supposed to revive Nokia’s strength in the smartphone market and the upcoming release will finally hand down the verdict.
Much of the reception will ultimately be based on how much the retail price will be once the Nokia N8 arrives in the country. And while the RRP during the announcement is in the Php22k (before taxes and tariffs), we estimate it will be in the Php25 to Php30k range (definitely under 30k since the the N900 was around 29k when it was first released).
Based on ad bookings by Nokia to promote the N8, we estimate the release date will be last week of October to 1st week of November.
Can I can get a show of hands who among you here are waiting for the Nokia N8 and buying one?
