Nokia E7 Preorder UK at Play for £489.99 (Feb 1st release?) – N8 then was £479.99 – now £339.99 at Amazon!
TheNokiaNetwork has seen that Play.com is listing the Nokia E7 fpr £489.99 with free delivery. Note that when the N8 first arrived at Play.com it was set at £479.99 and if you look around (not too hard I might add) you’ll see it on Amazon for a stonkingly good £339.99. C7 and C6-01 are also on Amazon for around£290 and £250 respectively.
Note that the price for the N8 and other phones may go up tomorrow with the VAT going up from 17.5% to 20% in the UK.
No sign of E7 on Nokia’s own channels for preorder though we did see it back in early December at Amazon.com for 679USD. This was back when we were expecting E7 in December 2010 (as stated by Nokia) along with the minor Symbian^3 firmware update. Given the “early 2011″ now Feb 1st date by Play, should we expect the “50 new features” upgrade to be grouped together with the next expected firmware and E7 launch? i.e. no minor upate? Having said that, word on tweets is that pr1.1 is coming soon and will still preceed pr2.0.
