Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at amazon.com but without a free photo-video accessories kit…

Now shipping: Olympus E-PL9 in three colors and two kit options

A dramatic entrance by the Olympus E-PL9 mirrorless camera. In a “drop the mic” fashion, Olympus announced the camera for the US market and it is already in-stock and shipping at authorized Olympus dealers. There are two options available, body only for $600 or with the 14-42 EZ lens for $700. Three color schemes are available, black, white and brown, but borrowing from the naming craze of smartphones, they call them “onyx black”, “pearl white”, and “honey brown”. I’m personally holding out for the “truly blue” or the fire orange of the HTC U11 😉

This camera too has the high speed shooting technology that can go up to 9fps. Once a feature only found in dedicated sports cameras, now it’s propagating here and there and everywhere…

The various options are now in-stock and shipping at Get Olympus and Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon by Amazon itself.

Note that orders placed at B&H and Adorama will ship next week…
