Nokia N96 Available for Preorder, Due 7/31 for… $1,200?!

Nokia's upcoming N96 monsterphone might justbe coming out on July 31st with the wha-wha-whaaaa inducing pricetag of $1,200 if Play.com is to be believed. At least that's what the pre-release price is on that site - Nokia's estimated retail price is $800. That's still a bonkers price to pay for a phone, but it's significantly less bonkers than $1,200. In any case, 7/31 seems as good a date as any for the N96 to drop. We'll see if that actually happens. [Play.com via Symbian Guru]
