Black Friday deal for the Nokia N8
This Friday marks, for many people living in the US, the beginning of the holiday shopping season. As is customary, the Friday after the Thanksgiving holiday known as Black Friday is a day when stores around the US offer huge deals on most of the products in their stores and Nokia USA is no exception. From Friday through til Monday, Nokia is offering reduced prices on all of their devices and even greater savings on accessories. Read on for the highlight of this weekend’s sale.
Yes ladies and gents, the N8 is now going for under $500 unlocked. While not necessarily cheap, it represents a ~10% drop in price and as the image says, is only while supplies last. All colors are available and there’s free shipping to boot. Guess this is Nokia’s way of saying Merry Christmas.
That said, does anyone think the impending product placement of the N8 in the upcoming movie, Tron Legacy, the hiring of former Verizon VP of brand management Jerri DeVard and the recently leaked X7 (which looks like a shoe-in for a Tron /AT&T branded phone for the US) signals a greater push in the US market for Nokia.
For those that might say they’d be better served increasing sales in other markets, consider that the US market has of late been one of the highest adopters of high-end smartphones as a function of population size.
