N8 Starts Selling in India for INR 26,259

Nokia N8 has started selling in India for a whopping price of INR 26,259. Initially, the rumours spread about this phone to be sold at 22000 INR in India. If you look around the world the phone's price averages at about 549$ which is about the same price as it has released in India. A price so high might take away the potential buyers to look out for other options in the market as well. It cannot be denied that there are competitive phones out there in the market, like, Motorola Milestone, Sony Ericsson Vivaz, Samsung GalaxyS and many more.


The first lot of Nokia N8 will arrive around 15-16 October specially for the pre-bookers. There are high expectations from this phone in terms of user experience and much hyped optical excellence of this 12MP wonder. There isn't a huge market in India for HDMI devices as of now. However, HD televisions are seeing huge increase in sales now. In order to justify the price of this phone, I can just say that you get an year subscription of Ovi Music Unlimited and a lifetime free GPS. You would not get these with any other brand in the market today.
