Nokia's decision to give out free exclusive content to the first 200 customers only is probably not the way to go. It would have been much better for the company to entice potential customers with something beefier than a few films and a few applications. Sony gave a free £2500 HD TV to the first 100 customers when they released their PS3 gaming console on Oxford Street.
