Over the last few weeks we have been watching the news and waiting for some information about the release dates for the 4 handsets, We did manage to get some info in the interim and we told you the Nokia 3 would be launching August 2nd which was true. We also had a period of FAKE Nokia 3310s doing the rounds so this news will put them out of business for sure now with the Nokia 3310 coming in at €59 however you can buy it sim free now from Argos for around 67 euro which is a fair sim free price with no contract.


From August 2nd, the Nokia 6 & Nokia 5 will be available exclusively in on Three (Yes and exclusive deal has been made) Which is a bane for some people and the Nokia 3 will be available from Three, Vodafone, Eir and Carphone Warehouse respectively. The Nokia 3310 will be available from Vodafone, Eir and Carphone Warehouse. You can also pick up these devices from the UK too but remember if you do make sure its sim free. You also have a better a chance of picking up a Sim Free/Dual sim variant across the pond.

One thing here I will openly say is carrier exclusives are a bad thing and for this to happen personally I think its a bad move, There will be many people trying to get their hands on the new Nokia6 and the majority will not move network to get their hands on one. I and many other mobile enthusiasts have agreed for a long time carrier exclusives should be banned and seeing this now reminds me of the old days particularly with Microsoft Lumia devices and we all know how that went.


We have the Nokia 3310 and Nokia 6 some time now so if you have any questions hit us up… Dont forget to watch out for the upcoming flagship #Nokia8 too next month..
