Hi, does anyone know if you can buy a sammy in frankfurt. I’m going to have a few hours there in about a week.December 27, 2008 at 4:59 pm #177510dinoMember
the huge german electronics shop chain mediamarkt will have them, but as i recall it was quite pricey now that the pound is so low.December 27, 2008 at 5:00 pm #177511AlfiharParticipant
As a side note, If you buy it in Germany you will probably get one without Bluetooth.December 27, 2008 at 5:10 pm #177515
as an aside why has BT been removed for the German Market ?
Is the hardware still there or is it simply disabled?December 27, 2008 at 7:01 pm #177509fatnbaldMember

I was in Frankfurt, Lyon and Stuttgart airports two weeks ago and none of them had the NC10 that I could find, I was specifically looking for one as well.
They had it in Manchester at about Â£310 ish as I recall.December 28, 2008 at 3:23 pm #177513
OK, but if you get one without bluetooth, you can add it later right?December 28, 2008 at 3:44 pm #177512AlfiharParticipant
I expect you could add Bluetooth afterwards,
though I’m not sure whether it will be an easy plug it in, or whether it will require difficult to obtain parts and precision soldering as I can’t find any pictures of the German NC10 to see which parts are missing.
At worst you could use an external usb bluetooth dongle.December 28, 2008 at 4:07 pm #177516
ouch they is pricey over in Europe â‚¬449 !!!
Anyways another random question
Why on the German Site is it still described as having a 10.2″ screen?
Surely the Continentals should be referring to it as a 25.9 cm screen or would that mean reanaming it as a NC26 ;o)December 28, 2008 at 11:35 pm #177514
Well, I’m form Sweden, and we always measure the display in inch, and btw, Vodafone is selling the 3g NC10 (http://shop.vodafone.de/Shop/privat/product_details.jsp?menuKey=1057&_DARGS=/Shop/core_details.jsp) for 479, without subscription and without simlock :D. The 3g card should also be compatible with OS X 😛December 28, 2008 at 11:55 pm #177517
Just seems curious even on the UK site all the measurements are primarily metric except the monitor size.
Wonder of there’s a reason for that ?January 1, 2009 at 10:31 pm #177518themausmanMember
In Holland we also use the inch for monitor and tv size. Very strange but we tend to use a lot of english words in our language so no one is talking about cm anymore. Even the mobile get referred to in inches. For the price, yo should be able to get one for 399 euros but every store here will try to take you for an extra ‘tenna’ especially in big electronic stores it pays of to negotiate a price. Not common in our country but it works for me every time 😉
