Obviously, we can no longer take it as gospel, as their March date caused so much heat in the blogosphere that it got pulled, but it surely ties in with the Q2/June N97 release window that was confirmed at Mobile World Congress.
One sticking point…the price. £649.99. We know that it has 32GB of memory, has a 5 megapixel Carl-Zeiss lens and the newest and slickest Nokia interface…but £649.99?
There is no way that people will part with almost £700 for a mobile phone whilst the fabric of our economy unravels around us. I think that’ll be the most anyone could possibly charge, despite it being a cutting-edge (if flakey at present) piece of hardware.
