In a welcome, yet odd, development, Dell
has started selling several high-end Nokia phones in an unlocked state via its online store. So far searches reveal that Dell is selling the Nokia N80
, E61i, and E61 for around $400, and the N95
for $732. Those prices don't sound too great when compared to in-contract prices, but compared to similar unlocked offerings from high street stores they're pretty damn competitive. Besides, it doesn't look as if Dell is partnering with any
mobile operators, and is instead highlighting the unlocked prices. Unlocked cellphone price war
, anyone? If Dell's in the game, then you can bet that others will join.
