The Nokia N96 NAM Gets Unattractively Priced

Preorder the Nokia N96 for $842.40.

If you’re looking for Nokia’s hottest smartphone right now, this ain’t it. That distinction goes to the N85, a device that looks and feels like a winner. But if you’re yearning for the plasticness that is the N96, you may be pleased to know that you can now preorder the North American version for $842.40 – that’s a savings of 5% off the retail price!

While NokiaUSA lists the preorder price for the N96 at $895, simply add it to your cart and you’ll see the new price. Whether this is a price mistake or some kind of preorder bonus recession discount is currently unknown.

The real question is if the $842.40/$895 is worth it for a phone of this caliber. Personally, I’m leaning on no – the first reason being that I just don’t see anything groundbreaking enough to justify the price tag. The second reason: it feels like plastic.
