hilarious n800 ad

i got my “have a cheap n800″ email today from nokia.

first let me say how fantastic nokia is. they absolutely don’t need to give us discounts on these devices which many of us would likely pay full price for anyway. they absolutely don’t need to make a huge contribution to guadec. but they do. that’s awesome. thanks, guys.

second, i have something hilarious to share with everyone. i was looking for information on if the n800 will be available for purchase from nokia in canada any time soon and i came across this hilarious video. watch this n800 ad on tigerdirect.

not only is it beyond corny — it goes into a very detailed explanation of how the device supports gsm and exactly which cell phone carriers you will and will not be able to use it with. priceless.

    That was funny. I feel like buying one through them, just so I could complain about not being able to pick up a signal.

    Ugh… did anyone manage to rip the video?

    It seems that they have (wisely) removed it.
