Nokia N97 Coming To India On June 23 – Pre-Booking Starts With A Rs. 3000 Upfront Payment

The N97 finally has a realistic release date of June 23 in India and the pre-booking for the same started yesterday. You can pre-book the N97 in the colour of your choice by filling in this form, selecting a Nokia Priority Dealer closest to you and then waiting for his call to confirm the order.

In order to pre-book you will need to deposit Rs. 3000 upfront with the Dealer and pay the rest on the day you take posession of the device. According to a reader Arvind, his dealer said the same thing and quoted a price of not more than Rs. 36,200. In my book, that should be closer to the Rs. 35,000 mark and even lesser within a week.

Nokia India Will Bring The N97 To Your House For An Exclusive Preview

Beat that! The latest promotion to come out of the Nokia India website is simply phenomenal. For 1000 people living in any of the following cities, Nokia India will bring the N97 to their house or office for an exclusive preview, that too before its launch. So consider yourself lucky if you are living in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Ahmedabad or Pune.

Preview The N97 At Your Home

According to the terms and conditions you have until June 11 to register, but since the program has a cap of 1000 people – I suggest you register NOW! If you are eligible, Nokia will contact you between the June 8 and 21st for a preview. Another tip from the terms is that the more the number of friends you refer, the greater is the chance of you getting the preview.

I’ve not heard of a similar Nokia promotion before, has it ever been done in any other country?

PS: If Nokia India is giving exclusive previews ‘before launch’ to people till the June 21st, it means that the official release date will be later than that, logically speaking. Sad. However, as they say, you never know! Anyway, the N97 pre-booking is open.
