As far as I'm aware this is not exclusive to Vodafone in Australia. 

If you want to keep updated on launch details for NZ you can follow the NZ product page.

He informed me that it is being launched in Australia next month, exclusive to Vodafone retailers. The 16GB model will be available for all, but apparently he was told the 64GB is for “Vodafone employees only”


To quote from the link above.  I'm not sure this report can be be all that credible.  Why on earth would Vodafone restrict sales of the 64Gb phone to it's employees?

I see it's being advertised here in New Zealand (Air New Zealand's September Kia Ora in flight mag) as being avialable next month, so a fair guess we might see it at the same time as they do in Oz.

Yep -- there is no confirmed exact date but it will be around the time of the AU launch.

Nokia N9 “all-screen” smartphone available in New Zealand exclusively through Vodafone

Auckland, New Zealand – 19 September 2011. The Nokia N9, which was announced in New Zealand at the end of June, will be sold exclusively through Vodafone.

The stunning high-end smartphone, available in October 2011, will come in black with a RRP of NZD$999.

Vodafone’s director of sales, Grant Hopkins, said, “Vodafone are pleased to be able to offer the Nokia N9 exclusively to their customers. It’s great to add the N9, with its sleek design and simple operation, to the Vodafone smartphone range.”

The Nokia N9 is all about design and simplicity. It features a 3.9-inch AMOLED panel with a ClearBlack display, which makes the dark bits darker and the colours much more vivid.

The casing is made from material commonly used in ice hockey helmets and the paint is bled right through the material so the colour remains even if you scratch it. The material also allows for a superior antenna performance which means better reception, better voice quality, fewer dropped calls and a higher GPS accuracy.

The Nokia N9 “all-screen” design means there is no physical home button. Instead, it has touch and swipe gestures which lets you navigate around the homescreen.

The user interface is designed around the things people typically do the most – use apps, socialise and multitask. There are three homescreens, which are arranged in a carousel. The first homescreen is for accessing your apps; the second for social networking, calling, texting and calendar; and the final screen shows which applications are open. The screen can be pinched or zoomed to show either four or nine open app icons.

The Nokia N9 also comes with an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, wide-angle lens, HD video capture and large lens aperture for greater performance even in lowlight conditions. It is also NFC-enabled, which allows the user to share images and videos between devices by simply touching them together.

Rounding the package is Nokia’s free turn-by-turn drive and walk navigation with voice guidance and Nokia Store, which gives you access to the apps you need.

Go to www.nokia.co.nz/n9 to pre-register.

$999 Maybe is for the Black 64GB model?

I'm after the 16GB cyan (blue) version. :)

It would be unusual to only list the most expensive price when trying to build up buzz in a press release. I'd say that would be the entry level price.
