Arggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Arggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

So what were you doing last night from 8pm ’til about 12 midnight? If you’re like me, you were probably doing nothing useful. And also like me, you probably missed out on the Nokia phone deal of the century. I’m talking about the N97 of course, officially available for preorder at NokiaUSA last night. But not for $699.99, the retail price of the phone.

A coupon code that was supposed to take off a mere 10% of the price ($69), actually took off 35% ($245), making the final price of the N97 an ungodly $455. And thanks to a little preorder promotion, the order also included a BH-703 headset, worth around $50-$60 on its own. Wow. The deal was so smoking hot that I’m at a loss for words.

Sometime early this morning Nokia fixed the coupon code, and the N97 is now available for $699 with the BH-703 headset, or $629.10 with the 10% discount (but no headset).

Of course, just being in the right place at the right time doesn’t necessarily guarantee anything – there are reports of American Express users whose cards were being declined for unknown reasons. The good news is, Nokia seems to be honoring the purchases at the $454 price so some people should be getting their N97s sometime in early July.

For everyone else, though, you’ll have to settle paying through the roof for what is shaping up to be Nokia’s Greatest Phone yet.
