I went to the New York flagship store this afternoon to look for the Nokia 5800 NAM. Unfortunately, I was told it was no longer available for purchase because of reported issues. I’m guessing it’s about the complaints of not getting 3G signal. A sales associate told me Nokia is trying to figure out what’s wrong. In the meantime, you can leave your number with the store, and they’ll call when it is back on the sales floor.
When I asked whether they sold plenty of the Nokia 5800 NAM’s already, the response was, “No, because it was only available for a span of 7 hours.”
At first, I thought the reports were just rumors, but it sounds like Nokia knows about it. I wonder if we’ll get an official press release soon. I’m also curious what’s going on inside those heads who pre-ordered through the Nokia USA online store. Are you still looking forward to receiving the phone and hope it’s not broken?
