T-mobile’s exclusive Nokia Lumia 521 went on sale at Walmart’s online store this weekend, but it quickly became unavailable. The price was $129.99 without requiring a 2-year contract. It wasn’t supposed to go on sale until the 11th, so maybe someone at Walmart accidentally pressed a button early and quickly fixed their mistake. Or maybe they decided to sell some devices early to check interest.
The Nokia flagship store in Helsinki re-opened last week. Here’s a quick 30-second look inside. It feels like you’re flying while watching this video, so I think the cameraman is using one of those fancy steadicams. Video after the jump.
A Nokia Lifestyle Shop just opened in the center of Bangkok. It is the first of its kind in Thailand. If my translation is correct, the first customer who bought a Nokia Lumia phone received another phone of the same model for free. The first 100 customers also received either Nokia Purity earphones or Nokia DC-16 portable chargers.
Want the Nokia Lumia 800 Entertainment Bundle, but don’t live near a Microsoft retail store? Well, now you can buy it at the Microsoft online store. It’s available in Black or Magenta for $899. It’s an insane price, but doesn’t seem so bad if you actually calculate the total cost of buying the devices in the bundle separately.
Nokia is currently hiring web developers to work on the next Nokia Store. Two positions were listed on Monday at the Nokia Careers Page. Nokia aims to make this a team of about 40 people, and will gradually hire to reach this number.
I always tell the readers in the US to avoid the official Nokia Online shops and buy at Amazon because of lower prices. I’m not sure where Nokia users in France and Spain buy their devices, but they will no longer be able get them directly from Nokia’s online stores. Notices were posted today to redirect them to other outlets.
The Ovi Store was scheduled to go offline on Monday, March 29, 2010 from 05:45 EDT until 15:30 EDT while Nokia make updates and enhancements. No additional details were provided on upcoming features, so I guess we’ll find out when it comes back online.
The Nokia Ovi Store team rolled out an update on Thursday to provide faster access to relevant content with new content sorting for the store. This seems to apply to S60 devices only like the Nokia N97 mini because I do not see the changes on the Nokia N900. The update is available through a prompt when opening the Ovi Store.
