Un-CrunchDeals: Nokia N810 has mysterious price increase. Wait, what?


Nokia, you teasing little minx! First you drop the price of the lovely N810 Internet Tablet almost $100 to an iPod Touch-competing $389, making many of us check out bank accounts, and then just like that you raise the price to $439? Why do you do this to us?

There are rumors of a WiMAX version to be debuted at CTIA in a few weeks, which a lot of people are really looking forward to. We’ve also heard from a third party source that this WiMAX tablet will be far less expensive than the non-WiMAX version, but you’ll be required to sign a multi-year contract with the WiMAX vendor Nokia chooses.
