Is the Nokia N97 overpriced?

Well I don't have any intention of buying the N97 or any phone that goes above Rs 15000. I'd rather wait for the phone prices to come down if such a phone is on my wish list. I've read on a lot of forums/sites that the N97 is overpriced. I know its got an amazing form factor, USB charging, GPS, touch screen, etc... also the E90 still costs ~ Rs 33000 , so may be the price (~35000) is just right.

Just put a poll to find out what others have to say. So do vote (poll on top of the page) and leave a comment if any.

Hands on with the Nokia N97

I spent a few minutes with the N97 . Its a beautiful device, large screen , good QWERTY, USB charging, NGage, etc...

A few pics taken from my N958G (couldn't keep my clicking hand stable , will let you know why in my next post)

The N97 launched in Mumbai


Here it is , the Nokia N97 finally launched in Mumbai.
I'm sure I'll get to see many of those soon in the 'First Class' train compartment while I travel, been seeing a lot of 5800's lately. Sites and blogs have been populated with every detail of hardware and application reviews of the N97. No one complains about anything crashing as its known that its a production firmware the device is running on. But here are some of the early owners , a lil disappointed with crashing issues

Am sure issues will be resolved with a couple of firmware updates, same happened with the N95 earlier.

Price : ~ 35000
Vodafone Offer:
As part of the tie-up, on purchase of the N97 Vodafone customers will receive an exclusive free data plan over 3 months for browsing internet services.

The offer will be valid for all Vodafone customers at all Vodafone stores retailing Nokia devices, all Nokia branded retail outlets as well as multi-brand stores in nine cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.
