6230i @ 99,- EUR

It almost bro­ke my heart today when I saw a rela­tively modern Nokia 6230i (series40) pho­ne sel­ling for EUR 99,- EUR in a bund­le tog­e­ther with a pre­paid sim card in Germany.

Buy that pho­ne, take it to Kenya and remo­ve the simlock.

EUR 99,- is how many Kshs.? ~ 9100 Kshs? And afa­ik tho­se refur­bis­hed ones for sale in Nbo sell for at least 12.500 Kshs or even more.

Why can’t they have Nokia pho­nes with Series60 OS on such deals? Damn…

(The Nokia 6230i has beco­me a very popu­lar pho­ne on the euro­pean mar­ket sin­ce it’s release two years ago and cur­r­ent­ly retails at around EUR 159,-, without bran­ding or any other soft­ware restrictions.)

On the other hand, though, sin­ce I alrea­dy drop­ped my Voda­fone con­tract (= no sub­si­di­zed pho­ne every 24 mon­th), I shall get my next pho­ne @ Moi Ave­nue in beloved Nairobi.
