The smartphones will be available within the next few weeks
Nokia had a pretty solid presence at this year’s Mobile World Congress trade fair. The Finnish company announced several interesting new devices, including a Nokia Belle smartphone, the 808 PureView.The main attraction of Nokia 808 PureView is by far the 41-megapixel camera on the back. The handset manufacturer promised that the smartphone would hit shelves in May, for around 450 EUR (590 USD).
However, there’s no telling which countries will get it first and for what prices. The same goes for other new handsets announced back in February, such as the Lumia 610 and the international version of Lumia 900.
We reported yesterday that the Lumia 900 and 808 PureView had been spotted in Finland and Italy, respectively.
Unfortunately, they are currently insanely priced in both countries, but this is a frequent practice for third-party resellers who want to boost their sales over naive customers.
Still, the folks over at MyNokiaBlog have been tipped off on a certain Dutch online retailer that is now taking pre-orders for Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia Lumia 900 and Nokia Lumia 610.
The amount customers are required to pay to pre-order these smartphones is a bit closer to Nokia’s suggested retail prices.
Thus, Belsimpel is now offering the Nokia 808 PureView for 567 EUR (745 USD), Nokia Lumia 900 for 527 EUR (690 USD) and the Lumia 610 for 189 EUR (250 USD).
In comparison, the Finnish company mentioned that Nokia 808 PureView would cost around 450 EUR (590 USD), the Lumia 900 would be available for 489 EUR (645 USD), while the Lumia 610 would be the cheapest at 189 EUR (250 USD).
Nokia specifically said that Lumia 900 would be launched in April in Canada via Rogers, and globally in Q2. Nokia Lumia 610 will be released on the market sometime in Q2, while Nokia 808 PureView is expected to hit shelves in May.
