Nokia holding five hour sale tomorrow, online and in Flagship Stores

Apparently Nokia’s online sale last week was pretty effective because the Finnish manufacturer has decided to give it another go. This time around the sale is good at both Nokia Flagship Stores — in New York and Chicago — and online as well for those who don’t live near a shop. Here’s how this one shapes up:

  • 5800            $280.00
  • E63              $195.00
  • E66              $275.00
  • E71              $285.00
  • E75              $380.00
  • N79              $260.00
  • N85              $330.00
  • N95 8G         $355.00
  • N96              $440.00

Not bad at all, Nokia. As you can see, some of the prices are even better than last week’s deal and all fall into range off the 30-50 percent off. So when can you get your Symbian fix on the cheap? Thursday, June 25th in New York City from 11am-4pm local time (Eastern) and in Chicago from 10am-3pm local time (Central). The sale will also be going down in the same time slot on nokiausa.com. Anyone eyeing some new kit?

Nokia E71 and E66 Get Offical

Nokia E71 and E66 Get Offical

We know, we know. Since we gave the world an exclusive and extensive video walkthrough with the Nokia E71 last month all other E71 news has been, well, boring. We showed you just about every inch of the Nokia’s slender new stunner, both inside and out. The shinny new UI enhancements, the ridiculously hot form factor, the sleek metal case and every other nook and cranny. It seems like it took forever but Nokia has finally made the E71 official along with its little brother, the E66. Since we already knew just about everything there is to know about these skinny devices, all we were waiting for is release dates and price points. Although the official launch took place easrlier today, we’re still fuzzy on both issues. In typical fashion, we were given “Q3″ in terms of when the handsets will become available. Beyond that we were told that the E66 will be under $500 and the E71 will be over $500. We won’t get into this too much, but which would you consider a better way to announce a highly-anticipated handset: “You can get it on July 11 for $199″ or “You can get it sometime in the third quarter for somewhere around $500″? But we digress. Some new live videos are popping up around the internet today from Nokia’s not-so-secret London launch event so if you want some live E66 and E71 action – again – go seek them out. In the meantime, we’re wondering what we should do with our E71? How about a nice “Will it Blend” video? This is what the E71′s market share will look like in the US because Nokia couldn’t get its act together and release it before July… Vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Nokia E71 and E66 Demos go up Temporarily; We’ve Got Good News

Nokia E71 and E66 Demos go up Temporarily; We’ve Got Good News

iPhone iPhone 3G iPhone AppStore iPhone Apps iPhone 3G video calling iPhone iPhone Apple Apple iPhone. Oh sorry, that’s not until 1pm EST. In the meantime, Nokia fans anxiously awaiting new entries into the business-oriented Eseries lineup will be happy to learn of Nokia’s latest little slip up. For a short while yesterday, tutorials went up on Nokia’s site for the upcoming E71 and E66 handsets. Of course BGR readers have already seen just about all there is to see on the E71 but this little mistake could very well mean that an announcement is coming soon. In fact, a little bird might just have dropped an official announcement date on us. Nothing has been “confirmed” but Nokia fans might want to clear their schedules on June 16, a week from today. Yup, you heard it here people. The brief appearance of these tutorials gives even more weight to this date as it looks like someone may have just accidentally scheduled these pages to go live a week early. Our guess is that the downed demo pages, found here for the E71 and here for the E66, will go back up next Monday and there will be plenty more info to feast on as well.
