Nokia N93 has started shipping to their distributors! 23 replies,9709 views

Fellow members, I wanted to let you all know that the Nokia N93 has started shipping to their distributors. How ever at the time of this post very few retailers have them and are doing pre sales on them.

Please be aware however that unless you have some deep pockets you wont be able to buy many at all. The MSRP in the UK is 525.00GBP for the standard model and about 575.00 GBP for the Golf Edition. This is extremely more pricey than the US counterpart due in fact to the RoHs/WEEE standard. The official US MRSP has not been made available although $719.99USD has been kicked around a little. The Asia-Pacific MSRP as of yet is totally unkown to me.

Contrary to other posts you may have seen on the Alibaba boards Nokia products can not be purchased directly from them. This statement can be verified simply by placing a call to any Nokia regional headquarters. Nokia uses 3 worldwide distributors an 2 smaller regional distributors. I have contacted their # 1 Worldwide distributor and they as well as others are offering Open Accounts over 100k and VAR (Vallue Added Reseller) accounts for as low as 7.5K I would point out that these distributors sell more than just Nokia brand cell phones so you can purchase other brands of cell phones as well as PDA's computers ect. Nokia's biggest distributor has over 12 distribution centers world wide.

For 7.5k you may be able to buy about 11 in the US and 7.5kGPB around 14pcs. For 100K USd 150 pcs and 100K GBP 197pcs OK some members may look at this and say I can get more in the UK but there are two things here, although you could sell the European version in the US provided you had the right charger. The US model can not be legally sold in Europe because of the RoHs/WEEE standard. The other part of this is the monetary conversion. 525.00GBP is actually about 981.75USD.

In closing I would just like to say that these are approximations based on a conversation with the largest distributor of cell phones worldwide. Each purchase from a distributor is based on your order quanity or the mix of your order quanity and Supply and Demand for the Nokia N93. I will say though that if you find anyone offering the N93 lower than 100.00USD under retail they need to be scrutinized harshly. Looking for a true distributor contact a sales representative at 1 (800) 952-2355. This company is in no way affiliated to me and is only offered here to help the small business person get a start.

Best regards,

Ranger

Replying to [lechu]:Wilhelm knows that they are scammers, due to the price.

Nokia's largest distributers can not offer it at that price (187GBP). If http://www.mobilissimob.com was for real, Nokia distributers would buy off of them, instead of Nokia.

If you see any seller offering consumer electronics for less than 50% of the retail price, the odds are that they are nothing but scammers.

lechu, Ican't comment on this enough.  If you want to find out who the distributors are for a given brand name, contact the company directly.  They will be more than glad to tell you who there distributors are.   Believe it or not most, most distributors will allow you to open an account with them for as little as 7500.00USD.   Having a line of credit of between 50,000 and 100,000 will open doors to every distributor on the planet.  Sometimes you can find start-up companies that as yet do not have contracts with large world wide distributors and you can buy the products directly from them.  Most of these companies however are not in the electronics industry.  I know that so many are focused on electronics but believe it or not the profit margin is less on electronics than on a decrative carpet made in India or Turkey.

Best regards,

Ranger
