Indies to see red?
The metallic red version of the N73 will be available exclusively to the independent channel, due to a lack of interest from the networks.
A Nokia spokeswoman said that operators had taken on the grey/plum and white/brown variants of the device, but would not be stocking the white/red version. Effectively, this means the independent channel has access to an exclusive colour variant.
However since its launch earlier this month, Carphone Warehouse is only carrying the silver and plum version. According to several independent dealers getting hold of any other colour variant has so far proved fruitless. 'Silver and deep plum is the only one I can get hold of at the moment, distributors (don't seem to be) getting the white and red version,' said one dealer. 'A red version is news to me,' another added.
Both 20:20 and Unique distribution confirmed that they have so far only stocked the silver and plum version.
