I was looking at the 8800 from the next Nokia 6 post and was thinking,
“hey, that looks like quite a classy affair. I remember them being expensive at launch but they must be so cheap by now”.
Well, was I wrong. The ones in good condition are fetching quite a hefty sum. A bit more so than their original price.
There are several listings going for at least 1000GBP/1200USD (man, GBP/USD conversion sucks so bad). The 8800 first came out in 2005 with a few versions being released, e.g. Gold 8800 from 2008.
The cheapest are about 185GBP/227USD for sirocco versions though.
Not bad to hold value and then gain some.
What about the likes of the 3310? They started off at around 100GBP in the UK (I think I remember getting mine for 99GBP) and considering they came out in the year 2000, they’re not doing bad either. They used to be a bit cheaper but listings for newish ones are around 50GBP/60USD. Cheaper for the used ones.
Occasionally there are these…
