Nokia cuts price of flagship mobile

Finnish mobile phone manufacture Nokia has reduced the price of their Nokia N8 handset, by close to a quarter of the original cost.

Nokia’s on-line shop has brought down the price of the Nokia N8 to just £365, from £429; just close of £40 shy of a 1/4 of the cost of the mobile phone SIM free and unlocked to be used on any network.

The N8 is the latest flagship handset from the former Wellington boot maker, which arrives with a 3.5-inch 640x360 AMOLED capacitive touch screen, with a 680Mhz processor and 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot.

Nokia’s N8 runs from the Symbian^3 OS and has the highest specification of a camera seen in mobile from the Finnish, with a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash that can record video in a 720p HD resolution.

The N8 is also available free on a contract at the Nokia shop, starting from £25.53 a month with 600 minutes, a 500 text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance – which is also accompanied by 3 months 1/2 price line rental.

There’s been no word why the mobile phone has taken such a price cut from Nokia, although Mobile World Congress is just around the corner and a successor to the mobile might be on the cards.
