Free Monster headphones when you buy a Nokia Lumia 800 or 900 in Australia!

I just got an email about this new Nokia promotion and it sounds great! (literally) Basically for the next 2 weeks, if you buy a Nokia Lumia 800 or 900 handset, you will get a free Nokia Purity HD On-Ear stereo headset worth $249 RRP for FREE. The headphone is made by Monster who are famous for their Beats range of headphones. So you are guaranteed that they will sound excellent.

I’ve actually had experienced the headset first hand for about 2 weeks and all I can say is that it is one fashionable and good sounding closed-style headphones. It is well padded, has decent isolation and has a surprisingly neutral sound without any over-powering bass or treble. If you like your headphones thumping with bass however, this may not be the right one for you. But overall, they look and sound the part. They certainly can seek attention of everyone around you depending on the color so just keep that in mind. I wouldn’t go anything other than black myself but if you are all about fashion, certainly go for the blue or pink as they definitely stand out from the crowd. =)

Official press release is below for more information.

Nokia 808 PureView coming to Australia?


I just got a tweet reply from @NokiaAustralia telling me that they are currently working out the timing and availability for 808 PureView release in Australia.

This is great news!

In another note, Damian Dinning mentioned that he expects this to be available in Q2 2012 but hopes it to be released around May. I’m really hoping that Australia will be one of the first to get it just like the N9 release last year.


UPDATE MARCH 5th: So it seems it’s not yet certain if Australia will get the official 41MP goodness.

NokiaAustralia has further commented about the release not being confirmed as of yet.
