HMD Global, manufacturer of Nokia phones, has announced a number of price drops across the current Nokia suite with a number of different retailers.

Nokia 8

The flagship Nokia 8 has seen a $300 price drop at JB HiFi; now available for $599 down from $899 until 15 March. There is a $360 loyalty discount on the Nokia 8 for a 36 month contract at Vodafone. The discount applies to the $40 Red Plan and is the cheapest in market option for the handset costing a total of $539.

Nokia 5

The Nokia 5 has seen a $42 price drop at JB HiFi; now available for $287 down from $329 until 15 March. The Nokia 5 is available on pre-paid for $249 at Telstra. This is a saving of $80 on the handset and the retailer is also offering an exclusive Tempered Blu colour, featuring 3GB RAM.

Nokia 3310 3G

The Nokia 3310 3G has seen a $50 price drop at Coles; now available for $39 down from $89.

With a number of new Nokia phones announced at MWC this week, the time is right to buy some of last season’s better Nokia handsets.

Nokia 8 can be purchased for about $470 on eBay with the current 5% voucher. Available for everyone

You’d be mad to buy any current Nokia through any telco unless you are really desperate not to have to buy outright. The phones are known for their speedy updates which would get trampled all over if Vodafone was allowed to interfere in the process and I doubt HMD has Apple’s clout to demand a speedy process.

I’ve got a Vodafone Nokia 8 and to date they haven’t held up any updates at all

It would be a first for Vodafone, after 10+ years as a customer I’ve been through a vast array of handset updates that have been very slow to pass their delaying oops testing process. Some updates just cancelled altogether with nary a decent excuse given. Other Telcos are not much better so the sooner handset companies stop letting Telcos interfere in update processes, the better. There is absolutely zero valid reason for Telco gimped handsets. If JB HiFi can sell me an ungimped handset, so can the Telcos.
