Nokia N8

Just been to Tescos and picked up the latest catalogue winter 2010

In there is the N8 for 299 could be a print error but worth keeping an eye on

Thats good if correct

Play.com as it listed at 419.99 for pre order early october- but only the black version at present (silver listed but no date schedule)? no other colours present.

Crikey, that's one helluva price - they'll be inundated. Or it's a misprint....

Are they still obliged to sell them at that price, if it's a mistake? Can they sell one handset priced at 299 and then declare that they sold out, and the new batch will be 400+?

what does it say on page 617?

ie the terms and conditions page .. maybe that is an on-contract price??

page 617 just waffles on about the "triple you credit" and 5 favourite numbers.

The catalogue does not have any contract phones inside only pay as you go !

This is their xmas catalogue that was sitting on pallets outside the store. They must of printed off thousands upon thousands of them, surely it cant be a print error ?


every little helps

I didn't think before to search online using the cat number,

but it gets better 289.97 it say's, now im not sure if that is with the clubcard points.

here is the link 289:97 with free delivery

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.209-8479.aspx


obviously it says out of stock

So this has got to be the price

This will be the price for pay-as-you-go but locked to Tesco Mobile network. Their Ts&Cs say that they will not unlock PAYG phones until 12 months after the first activation date.

still... 290 is a deal.

And yes, they can pull it despite putting the price in print.

T-Mobile allow you to unlock 3 months after the sim is first activated. It costs 20-25 and takes a month to get the code.

Still a good deal though.
