Highly hyped, 12 megapixeled Nokia’s N8 has at last arrived in Pakistan, well sort of. Device was launched in an event arranged by Nokia in Karachi today.
Customers who had pre-ordered the phone with Ufone service centers, are said to receive their phones soon.
However, the device would be available at retail stores after one month. Until then, you don’t have any choice but to get the device from Ufone. It’s because of some sort of exclusive agreement between Nokia and Ufone.
It maybe recalled that Ufone is accepting pre-orders at Rs. 41,900, which is 25 percent lower than the market price as claimed by Ufone.
Some (official) voices in today’s launch opined that N8 would be priced at PKR 36,000 to PKR 38,000, while few others said N8 to be priced at PKR 44,500.
