Nokia N900 to be released in South Africa!
While the actual scene of the Nokia N900 on the Europe and USA markets is limited due to the partial release of the phone, only available through the pre-order kind of sale, Nokia South Africa has announced today that they would release the Nokia N900.
Back in mid November Nokia revealed that they wouldn’t release the Nokia N900 on the South Africa Market. This was established by Nokia the same day that they announced the release of the Nokia N97 mini and he Nokia Booklet. But today we received the good news! the South Africa Communications Managers Tanja Steenkamp explained that back on those days the strategy was to release the Nokia N900 in select markets only. However, a “solid business case” convinced head executives at Nokia to ship the device to South Africa.
There isn’t an exact release day yet because it has just started the first approaches between Nokia, the major network provider and communication authority in order to approve the Nokia N900 for retail locally. The estimated date which the Nokia N900 is expected to be available would be sometime around the second quarter of 2010.
Steenkamp also added that the price hasn’t been set yet but you got to know that the global price is around €500 (R5,500) without sales tax or surcharges. For more information you would have to wait a few more months, more precisely on February.
