Cancellation email? Why was it cancelled? I just managed to order one

Mis-price: https://www.facebook...371613726188591

They might honour some orders but *******s who bought 10-25+ of them (like a few people on hotukdeals did) have probably spoilt it for everyone.

Yet the page is still up:

http://www.argos.co....795&cmpid=COJUN

Except if you try to add it to the basket it gives a 404 (not found) error and has done for the past 2 hours, so they've obviously tried to remove the product... but their site is crap :p.

Pricing issue or not.. The 'damage' is done.. Another cheap brand exposure action by Nokia.. well done!

The few cases they cannot get away from will get delivered at stated price, the remainder will cancel and the rest.. just wished it had been true but in te meantime yet again Nokia and Lumia are plastered across webblogs worldwide ..

:punk:

Shame. Some people reported that they were able to go in store and buy one for that price (not sure about that as it said web exclusive) - but even if some people were able to buy it, the idiots at HotUKdeals made sure it was never going to last by ordering 10 or even 25 each.

Selfish ********.

Anbody who seriously considered that price to be correct must have a below average IQ. Setup or not, the price was just too good to be true and if any of these buyers who now threaten to goto court should know not only is there a disclaimer on the site, this is also obviously not a realistic price anyone who will protest in hindsight will need a reality check.

It's not just the deal itself that's online exclusive - the phone itself is only available as part of their extended online collection - i.e., they don't even stock it in stores.

Update 2: In spite of the words of comfort that Argos offered to us over the phone, the company's taken to Facebook to inform its customers that the Lumia 800 was mispriced and all orders at the erroneous price will be cancelled. Cancellation text messages have also been sent out to those who thought they'd managed to complete a successful order.

      HMD Global introduces the Nokia 6300 and 8000 with 4G and Google Assistant
      by João Carrasqueira

      HMD Global has announced the latest members of its family of feature phones, or "dumb" phones, as they're sometimes called. The new phones are the Nokia 6300 4G and Nokia 8000 4G, and they share some similarities in terms of specs and features, including the same Snapdragon 210 chipset, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage, which you can expand via microSD cards.

      The Nokia 6300 4G naturally draws some inspiration from the original Nokia 6300 from 2007 in terms of design, but it's been modernized to be more suitable for the modern day. KaiOS can run some basic apps - including popular apps like WhatsApp - and it also supports the Google Assistant, so there are still some smarts. What's notable about it is that it's Nokia cheapest phone yet to offer that feature set, coming in at an average retail price of €49.



      In addition to 4G, the phone supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, and it has an FM radio, which is enabled by connecting a headset with the 3.5mm jack. The display is a 2.4-inch QVGA panel, which isn't meant to wow anyone, and the camera is also the bare minimum, being a VGA sensor, but it does have a flash, which can be used with the camera or just as a flashlight. There's a 1,500mAh battery, which promises up to 27.9 days of standby time and 8.2 hours of talk time.

      As mentioned above, the Nokia 8000 4G is very similar in terms of specs, and the biggest differences are in the design. It has a front panel that curves at the edges, including the number keys, and the back uses a "glass-like" material to make the phone feel more premium. It also comes in different colors that make better use of that design.



      Specs-wise, the only differences are the display, which is 2.8 inches diagonally, and the rear camera, which is a 2MP sensor instead of a VGA one. Everything else is pretty much the same.

      Both phones are available in select markets from today. The Nokia 6300 4G comes in Cyan Green, Light Charcoal, and Powder White colors and costs €49 on average. The Nokia 8000 4G comes in Onyx, Opal, Citrine, and Topaz color options, and costs €79.

      HMD Global brings the Nokia 8.3 5G as the Nokia 8 V 5G UW via Verizon to the U.S.
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      HMD Global today announced that it is launching the Nokia 8.3 5G in the U.S. as the Nokia 8 V 5G UW via Verizon. The 8.3 5G originally debuted in March and was reported to be coming to the U.S. sometime this fall.

      The latest 5G offering from Verizon Wireless bears the nomenclature seen on all its other devices, with the UW suffix signifying support for the faster mmWave 5G speeds. The device also supports Verizon 5G Nationwide, the carrier’s recently announced sub-6Ghz low band 5G network. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, said that the device is the company’s “first affordable flagship carrier device on Android in the U.S.”.

      As for the specs, the Nokia 8 V 5G UW is powered by a Snapdragon 765G with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage options. The device also supports expandable storage via microSD cards. At the front sits a 6.81-inch FullHD+ PureDisplay screen with support for HDR. At the rear, the device sports a quad-camera setup with ZEISS optics. The main camera duties are carried out by a 64MP sensor accompanied by an ultra-wide-angle sensor with Night video mode for improved low light performance, a macro lens, and a depth camera unit. The phone features a power button-mounted fingerprint sensor and houses a 4500mAh battery.

      The Nokia 8 V 5G UW will be available starting November 12 from $699.99 on Verizon’s website and the My Verizon app.

      Nokia report warns of rising cyberattacks on IoT devices
      by Paul Hill



      Nokia’s latest Threat Intelligence Report has warned that cyberattacks on internet-connected devices are continuing to rise at an “alarming rate” due to poor security protections. The report found that IoT devices now make up 33% of infected devices, up from 16% in 2019.

      According to the report, the most affected IoT devices are those that are routinely assigned public-facing internet IP addresses. It highlighted that networks that use carrier-grade Network Address Translation see the infection rate of IoT devices reduced considerably because the vulnerable devices are not visible to network scans.

      Commenting on the findings in the report, Bhaskar Gorti, Nokia Software President and Chief Digital Officer, said:

      Pivoting away from IoT devices, the report also looks at how cybercriminals have used the COVID-19 pandemic to launch cyberattacks. It said that criminals are using people’s fears to spread malware, for example, it said that a coronavirus map application mimicked the Johns Hopkins University app and deployed malware on the devices it was installed on. To protect against these types of attacks, Nokia’s report suggests that people should only install applications from trusted sources such as Google and Apple.

      HMD Global announces the Nokia 2 V Tella for $168
      by Jay Bonggolto

      HMD Global announced today its latest entry-level smartphone that costs less than $200. The Nokia 2 V Tella is available to purchase now in Walmart stores and through Walmart.com from $89, with availability on select Verizon stores scheduled later this month for $168.

      The device sports a 5.45-inch HD+ display and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. At the back of the phone, there's a dual camera comprising an 8MP auto focus sensor that uses artificial intelligence to provide "greater depth and brighter image results even in challenging lighting situations". It is complemented by a 2MP depth sensor.

      While most of its key specs are nothing to write home about, its battery life offers a better experience for its price range. Its 3000mAh battery features an AI-powered Adaptive Battery system to prioritize resources for your most frequently used apps, keeping your phone up for as long as two days.

      The Nokia 2 V Tella has a dedicated Google Assistant button and AI Face Unlock. Other features include support for dark theme, Focus Mode, Family Link, and many more. The phone runs Android 10 and comes in blue color.

      Nokia to build the first cellular network on the Moon
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      When NASA makes a return to the Moon by 2024, it wants its astronauts to have an efficient and reliable way to communicate with one another. To make that happen, the space agency is turning to Nokia for help and providing the Finnish company a $14.1 million funding to roll out 4G on the Moon.

      Nokia has today announced further details about the project, which will pave the way towards a sustainable human presence on the lunar surface. The firm noted that deploying the first LTE/4G communications system in space will be extremely vital for NASA's Artemis program, which seeks to establish a sustainable human presence on the moon by 2030. The announcement read:

      Nokia said that its solution will be "ultra-compact, low-power, space-hardened, end-to-end LTE," and will be deployed on the Moon in late 2022. The firm plans to integrate its wireless communications system on the lunar surface in partnership with Intuitive Machines, a Texas-based private spacecraft design firm.

      Once the delivery is made, the network will automatically configure itself and establish the first LTE communications system on the Moon, Nokia noted.
