Nokia N97 Pre-Order, Php40K Price Tag?

The Nokia N97 is coming out this June and you have the chance to pre-order this smartphone today and get it on launch day.

What’s conspicuously missing in the pre-order page here is the suggested retail price.

nokia n97 philippines

If we follow the earlier announced price in Europe of €550, it may end up somewhere in the Php40k range after tariffs and VAT.

Considering that the Nokia N96 had an SRP of Php37,850 (on its first release in the Philippines) and the Nokia E90 costs about Php35,500, that figure isn’t far off.

Any takers?

    yugatech’s price is exaggerated, it won’t reach 40K “duh!”.. and the n96 nowadays costs around 28k-32k.. i bet the N97 will be ranging from 33-35k.. and its a good buy, an all in one phone and you get a chance to win a router.. i’ll be getting one for sure, an upgrade from my N95..

  3. I rather by HTC Tytn II

  4. @loreen, read the last 2 paragraphs again. The announced price in Europe is €550. AT current exchange rates, that is Php36,200. Add 12% VAT and you end up with Php40,500. Gets?

    i saw that.. but it still wont hit the 40K mark.. since prices from other countries doesn’t mean they are equivalent in the forex.. some people who want to buy it might be thinking twice because of that estimated price.. but anyway, i’m sure nokia will release the prices on the pre-order period..

  8. update here in sg…comes with music 1288sgd without comes with music its 1088sgd…and its hard to find without comes with music…just to give you guys an idea on the prices as normally mas mahal ng konti dito pag nokia

    I have just upgraded my Nokia N95 to an N97. So far, so good.

    However, when anyone calls me on my phone it just displays “CALL CALLING” on the screen even though that person is listed in my contacts. I’ve had a decent look through the menus etc. but I cannot find how to make it display the contacts name when they ring.

    Am I missing something obvious or is this a feature that requires a fix?

    The only thing to mention is that I used Nokia PC Suite to backup the contacts from my N95 and then I restored them to my N97.

    if you have any good idea for a mod, please share them at

    Many Thanks…

    nokia is by and large quick to depreciate in value because they easily replace a current model with a new one simply by adding 1 or 2 more features to the next. it all depends on the gullible materialistic person who wants the latest model.. which in the philippines, we don’t lack of. lol

    40k is too much but if you wait for 3-4 months more, it’ll drop down to around 35k. and that’s the reason i prefer sony ericsson. they’ve got better phones with good resell value. can’t wait for aino. =)

    i’ve upgraded my n95 8gb with n97 and i can tell you the n97 is superb..
    With many features i can say that the pricetag is more or less worth it..i’m a great fan of the iphone long before the oldest 2g came out but i think the n97 has the greater advantage against the iphone..
    U dont want to miss a phone like kidding, this phone takes nokia on to the next level

  16. its now down to 28K. Its not new from the nokia’s phone that getting slice of price. I love nokia but im sure i want a phone like apple iphone that would take long to cut back price.

  17. sobrang mahal 40k…

    tpos n holddap…. wahahaha
