Nokia announces the price of the Nokia 808 PureView in Brazil: $R 1999!

Today, thanks to the Brazilian site NosGeeks ("we geeks") I learned that Nokia announced the price for the Nokia 808 PureView in Brazil: a whopping $R1999, that's about €800 or  $990! It will be offered in Nokia stores, online and FNAC stores. I don't know if you can get it on contract there as well.

The price is... well, what can I say... breathtaking? It's much more than in many other parts of the world, or should I write any other part? We all know that the "Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price" is usually a lot higher than you'll have to pay in the end, but still, it's almost as if Nokia suddenly has the  impression it has struck gold with the Nokia 808 PureView.

Or Nokia knows the Brazilian economy is booming and is less worried by people not being able to buy it. If you are reading this from Brazil, please share what you think about the price and if you will get the Nokia 808 no matter what, or wait until the price drops.
