North American Availability...


Jul 9, 2012, 6:57 PM
Has anyone heard about the availability of this phone for North America? Hopefully in a store?

I know Amazon (US) has it, Expansys has it too, but it is wayyyy too pricy ($824 CDN !!! Shocked )

That's what a high-end phone actually costs. That's not all that expensive. A 64GB iPhone 4S costs $849 US without a contract.

If you want it subsidized (with a 2-year contract, etc.) I'm afraid you're out of luck. No US carriers have announced plans to carry it directly (and I highly doubt that will change.)

Yeah, I guess so.

Looks like I've been spoiled by *inexpensive* phones like my HTC One S (a mere $550!).

I like having the latest and greatest all the time, so I always just buy them outright (I know, it's really expensive).

I'll have to snoop around and see what I can find, maybe order internationally.

But you named the iPhone 4S ?? Just a little confused. Apple products should never, ever be used to compare prices, as all apple products are grossly overpriced.

Good news!

I found a Nokia 808, brand new, sealed, unlocked, on a website called (or something like that).

Yes it's from Singapore, but with the exchange rate, it works out to around $650 CAD !!

A fine price for me, can't wait to get it!

Also, that iPhone doesn't have:

2. a xenon flash (like a real camera has, not a dippy little LED)
