The evil doppelganger of the N9 has finally made its appearance in Malaysia. The love child of Stephen Elop. Whatever you want to call it. Here, I shall share my occasionally politically incorrect views on the Lumia 800. Be warned that I am biased against anything from the loins of Redmond in general. Continue reading
So, a couple of days ago, I received an invite through a “proxy” that allowed me to infiltrate the tightly guarded ranks of Nokia Malaysia during their “preview” of the Lumia 710 & 800 in Kuala Lumpur. At this launch, my main objective was to eat pastries – as can be seen below.
I am now grinning like a retard.
Here are some pictures for you to digest while I continue grinning like a retard for the rest of the day.
A quick summary:
- The Nokia N9 comes with:
- Nokia N9
- Wired headset
- Charger (USB header)
- USB data/charging cable
- strange pieces of paper with words on them
- The BH-505 comes with:
- Nokia BH-505 NFC
- Charger (with strange 2.5mm looking head)
- bunch of rubber squiggly things
- more strange pieces of paper with words on them
Total price: RM2088 (approx USD670)
Now, back to grinning like a retard. Bye!
I made full payment for my 64GB Nokia N9 today at the Nokia Store in Gardens, Mid Valley. According to the staff there, they “should” receive stock by then – and customers who have either paid a deposit (or paid in full) will be given priority for the device.
A nice plus point is that Nokia Malaysia is apparently allocating a certain number of BH-505 NFC enabled headsets to be given out to a few of the aforementioned lucky customers!
