    What?! Amazon Raised Prices on the N8 :\

    Orange version raised by 70$, it's $469.81 now. Gray $422.99. They both used to be 400$. I was waiting to get the Orange one, thinking twice about it now :\

    It's like COBOL, the programming language, or Lotus Notes, the enterprise email/document system. Once they are EOL, and most people have moved on to other skills, you can make a fortune maintaining existing infrastructure around them.

    In the case of the N8, it is one of the last phones that will ever be running Symbian. Symbian, despite being end of life, remains the most capable smartphone OS out there today. Add that to the N8's unique hardware capabilities (camera, HDMI..), and you can see why a certain segment of buyers (myself included) might think about securing one for use years down the line...

    Its possible prices are rising because of parts shortages from Japan. And then again, it may also be probably what Hlorri said too.

    As I commented in another thread, the E7 jumped up almost $200 overnight.
    I want to buy your Nokia E7.

    It's got to be a part supplier issue since both phone's prices are increasing everywhere.


    With that said, Dell is due for a online coupon code special since they've haven't had one in a while. Possibly one may be coming between now and end of second quarter...

    E7 dropped back down to $549.

    What the heck is Amazon doing? Perhaps they're trying to find the sweet spot on the price -

    Its just regular Amazon price fluctuations. Usually happens before they drop a price. $350 will be the standard price on the N8.

    You are right. They are all 400$ again, with the Pink one listed at 550$ but out of stock

    they are simply gouging the last US fans of Symbian. in this market they know the only units they sell unlocked are to serious fan boys who don't buy on price.

    Got mine from Newegg @ $369. for silver. Amazon is price matching Newegg, when Newegg's existing special expired on 5/1, prices went up. Newegg then reduced prices again, Amazon's went down. Ordered mine on Tuesday, got it today (2 days !!) w free shipping, woulda waited another week on Amazon & itz Made in Finland (hope that means less chance of problem). Waiting for Anna ....
    It may come down to $350., but wasn't worth the chance of prices going UP, again.
    informed/intelligent comments are welcome ... BS - not so much ...

    peace,
    ROK
