I’ve just ordered the sim free nokia n95 for the cheapest price i could find anywhere – €676 including tax and delivery.
Rather than risk ebay, i decided a few days ago to bite the bullet and buy from a reliable source at full whack.
Ironically, that price is actually cheaper than some ebay sellers so i’m fairly happy with my buy. I was expecting to pay about €710, so the extra €30-40 off was a nice little surprise and it can go towards a 2gb micro sd
Bloody hell, do i need it! 5mp camera with MPEG-4 movie capabilities + a standard VGA camera on the front, mp3 player, integrated gps system with maps, wi-fi, bluetooth, TV -out, video calls… the bundled 160 MB internal memory is obviously more than enough for that lot 🙄
So i’m expecting delivery to be late this week (today is Monday) or else next week. The reason why it’ll be slow is that i had to pay via bank transfer, as mobilefun won’t accept credit cards outside the UK.
Thankfully, i’m with NIB who have a superb online banking system – the perfect bank for online geeks like me who like do do everything electronically. I can’t tell you how much time i’ve saved with e-banking. Credit cards bills can be cleared, bank transfers can be made instantly… i can also pay off the parent’s bills in exchnage for cash, so that saves me going to the ATM..
The only time i go into my bank is to lodge my adsense cheques that’s the way to have it 😉
So with my n95 on the way, i now have to decide what i’m going to do with my 6600. €550 it cost me 3 years ago. Still going strong. They go for about €70 on ebay so i might go for that option, or else i’ll hang on to it and store it away so that i can sell it as a ‘classic’ in 10 years time 😆 the 6600 was THE phone back in 2003/4. The equivilent of the n95 today, it crushed all it’s rivals and had everything in the one package.
Ironically, it was the first ‘big buy’ i bought when i got my first job. 3 and a half years later, i’m leaving the same job, and the n95 will be my last ‘big buy’. 😯
