Price Check: Nokia Nseries and Eseries Phones on FleaBay

May 14, 2006 in Nokia Phone Deals

A lot of new Nseries (and Eseries) phones have shipped and are starting to hit everyone’s favorite junk trading site eBay. I myself am looking to score a new Nokia N71 phone as I’m tired of looking at my N90. It’s time for a change.

Read the extended entry for the current average selling prices on eBay…

Nokia N70 Phone: $392 (the N70 is a candybar with a 2mp camera + .3mp camera)
Nokia N71 Phone: $545 (Nokia’s latest Nseries “clamshell” phone, 2mp camera)
Nokia N80 Phone: $707 (the N80 is the 3.1mp slider wonder phone)
Nokia N90 Phone: $586 (the N90. Nokia’s first 2 megapixel Carl Zeiss lens phone, also Nokia’s largest)
Nokia N91 Phone: $750 (Nokia’s music player with a 4gb hard drive)

Nokia E60 Phone: $348 (the cheapest of the Eseries line, a simple budget phone with some business apps)
Nokia E61 Phone: $622 (the BlackBerry killer)

Note that I didn’t factor in shipping, which accounts for another average $40. Ridiculous when shipping actually costs maybe $10 for a new boxed Nokia phone. Also keep in mind that many of these are Buy It Now prices, which don’t necessarily reflect regular auctions (however, for most of the phones there are no regular auction, only buy-it-nows). My estimate is regular market prices are about 80% of the prices shown above.

So what does this information tell us? The N70 is dirt cheap, and is it any different from its N90/N71 counterparts? Not really. Unless you have to have that Carl Zeiss lens, there’s very few reasons (feature-wise) to pick one phone from the others. The N91 is (predictably) the most expensive Nseries phone, but considering the hardware (internal 4gb hard drive) I think the price is about right.

Let the bidding wars begin!
