N9 now available?

| September 8, 2011 | 38 Replies

I was online at Nokia Australia, and it appears to be available online, yet the link to purchase simply refreshes the page. Here’s the screen shot.


It appears to only be 299 euros(Weird price is mentioned in Euro when we use AUD in Australia). Authorised resellers include, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Orange and O2, which, except for Vodafone, are NOT operators here in Australia. Possibly an Austria-Australia mix up?

Seen anything like this on your country’s Nokia page?

UPDATE: Sorry about the crappy post, was doing this in class. So the above screenshot is from the “Check Availability” section. It shows that the N9 is available to buy at 299 euros online and through certain resellers. Neither the currency( Euros not AUD) nor the resellers, match those here in Australia. Like many of our readers have said, it is most likely a mix up between Austria and Australia. Austria apparently have these operators and, being part of the EU, use Euros.

As for why it includes the “data plan”, this is still not clear. How can Nokia give you a data plan when it is up to operators?

    N9 will be available in singapore from October onward, 16G for S$799, 64G for S$899.

      I thought they said “within a month”? That would leave the door open for a September release. Either way, it’s taken much too long.

  • Fanel

    The buy link doesn’t work. :(

    • A-S-D

      Of course it doesn’t work. It’s a mistake.
      We use AUD not EUR in Australia.
      We don’t have orange here. It was bought by 3 a few years ago. We don’t have 3 here because it was bought by vodafone not so long ago. We’ve never had T-Mobile or O2 in Australia so clearly a mistake/mix-up. It makes more sense for the UK than Australia.

      • Kit Yeung

        3 and Vodafone merged instead of an buy out.

        • A-S-D

          Close enough
          All that’s important is 3 in Australia no longer exists and their products are no longer sold
          It’s pretty much just like voda buying three

    Anyone Can Buy???

  • http://t lovemeego

    euro 299 is good price

  • 352×416

    That is funny. The URL says .com.au but all the whole page is UK specific. Nothing on that page relates to Australia.

  • et3rnal

    just mistake! the opraters not Australians and even the price, its 799 here

  • fff

    why do you use mac? support apple?

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      It’s all I have access to at School

    • phishbone

      I’d support Apple over Google or MS any day.

      Most of the FUD you see spread all over the web against Apple comes from people that have never used an iphone, nevermind an OSX-running Mac.

      This is coming from an ex-iphone user, who currently owns an N8, uses Windows at work, but MUCH prefers Macs after using them for 2 years.

  • Marcel

    The carriers T-Mobile, Vodafone, 3 and Orange are all present in Austria. Also the Euro price would make sense here. Maxbe this was just a confusion between Austria and Australia?

    • fjfjfg

      i think so

      hope the price there is not a mistake!

      • gusn

        we dont have vodafone or o2 here in austria… the austrian nokia website just says coming soon…

  • StylinRed

    i just took a look and it says you can also choose a data plan through the site

    so maybe 300 euros is with a data plan? (although the euro pricing is still odd)

  • wes?

    available soon…
    in Austria

  • Dave

    Wait… €299? I really hope that’s the price.

  • http://justhackitnow.blogspot.com realtechie..

    it’s not at all logical to be 299euros.

  • Pökö

    Yeah, hopefully price is not 299€ for shareholders stake. Lets start with 550€ 16Gb and 650€ 64Gb on pre-orders and after month 499€ and 599€ without contract.

  • fjfjfg

    fire sale if euro 550

  • Regus

    Looks like it’s back to normal now…

    No buy option any more. Mistake I guess?

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      Click the “get notified tab”. It’s still there

  • ravo

    damn 299euro.. i would buy 2 then ahha:P i hope the price goes down here in sweden its still at about 540-590

    • http://@hasasimoonTwitter Simo

      It’s already out there?

  • wes?

    Austria has these operators:
    - A1
    - T-Mobile
    - Orange
    - Drei
    - tele.ring
    - some other rather small ones

    The operators sound more like Germany to me, although I think Orange is not in germany, are they?

  • dip86

    All those operators are available in the UK. Although euros might suggest Ireland also.

    • 352×416

      Does only UK have Car Phone Warehouse?

      • dip86

        I know carphone warehouse exists in the UK and Ireland..don’t think they can be found elsewhere. I know all the operators listed can be found in the UK, however am not sure if Orange for example can be found in the republic of Ireland.

        Tbh it’s gotta be some kinda error (though I’m wishing not!) at that price so I wouldn’t look too much into it.

  • j.

    Appeared on one of the polish web shops http://www.komputronik.pl/product/132388/Nokia_N9_Black_64_GB.html with a price around 687 euro…damn pricey…

  • rueaka

    looking for nokia N9 at 299 euros on google(.fr) I ended on this page :

    http://www.nokia.be/decouvrez-les-appareils/tous-les-appareils/nokia-n9

    looks like there will be N9 in belgium.

    P.S : in google there is mention of a price (299) but I had no success finding this on the nokia site …

    Check amazon.de

    Nokia N9 16Gb -> 619€ (Black / Cian)
    Nokia N9 64Gb -> 799€ (Black)

    Fuck! this is way too expensive, that 64 Gb version

    http://www.amazon.de/Nokia-Smartphone-Display-Touchscreen-Megapixel/dp/B005FIY8EG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1315501391&sr=8-1

    Also, Jay, can you confirm the N9 will get the 3 colors in both versions? There’s lot of information saying 64Gb version will only be avaliable in black color

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      I’m not Jay, yet my contact at Vodafone Au told me that the 64GB will be in all the colours (as far as he has been told). Yet apparently, the 64GB version is for those who are employed at Voda, at least for know.

      • Hariainm

        Of course I aprecciate your words too, Michael! ;-) Then seems we have to wait for that 64Gb Cyan version. Thanks for the info!

    • Raver

      Get a Black 64GB & one of the really nice cyan skins that the N9 already has.
      That’s what I’m doing, if the Cyan isn’t out right-away (or ever) for 64GB.
      Plus Black’s a more versatile colour & won’t look as worn-out as quickly as Cyan.
