How much does an N900 cost? Nokia don't know…

by Ben Smith on 4th December 2009

“How much for an N900?”, a friend asks.  Hmmm… I’m not sure. I got a discount code when ordering mine, but otherwise it was always £499 in the Nokia online store.

I’ll just check Google…
Naughty Nokia - wrong price on their adverts
Oh wow! A sponsored search listing right at the top of the page! It looks like they’ve discounted it £50 now it’s generally available. That’s cool…

Ah… but they haven’t. This is where that advert brings you…
What Nokia actually charges
So, how much does an N900 cost? About £440 pre-ordered from Handtec right now.  You probably wouldn’t want to use the Nokia online store right now anyway.

This is either a typo or a timing cock-up on an impending price-cut, but either way the whole Nokia online retail experience feels half-baked and careless at the moment. Give your money to someone else until they get their act together. They’ll get the message quickly enough…
