I had a chance to hang out with Stefan Constantinescu at the S60 Summit in Madrid and shortly after returning from that trip Stefan moved from his Ring Nokia blog to serving as an editor at IntoMobile. As regular readers know I am also a participant in the Nokia Nseries Blogger Relations program and one of the most frustrating aspects of trying to educate people on the power of the S60 platform is the lack of high-end Nokia devices in the U.S. Stefan discovered something that should hopefully make it easier for people to pick up these devices in the U.S. Dell is now offering high end Nokia S60 devices, including the N80, E61i, N95 and E61. I paid about this same price, US$423.77, for my Nokia E61i from a US importer, but the thing with Dell is you can sometimes get 10% or more off with a coupon code.
I used to buy high end Sony PDAs from Dell due to their competitive prices and good return policy so I'll definitely have to check out Dell the next time I need to upgrade my device. You can also pick up Nokia devices directly from the Nokia USA, but some of the ones from Dell are not available yet from Nokia USA and the prices at Dell are a bit lower too.
