Nokia N900 US Release Confirmed Today Nokia N900 Pre-Orders Now Shipping Stateside

The long rumored and highly anticipated Nokia N900 is finally shipping
for US customers, as announced in an official press release today.
Apparently pre-orders for the mobile computer, as Nokia refers to it,
have started shipping and those who paid the hefty price should be
getting their Linux-based Maemo-running handsets, shortly — if not
today.
A powerful pocket computer that runs Maemo, Nokia N900 marks a move away
from Symbian. It brings multiple ways to connect to the Internet
(including access for 3G data networks, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth), 32GB of
storage and has the ability to multitask several applications or web
browsers at once. There's also a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a full QWERTY
keyboard that makes web browsing, IM and emailing very easy and a five
megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a dual LED flash, for
perfect imagery.
In the US the new N900 will cost some $649 if you plan a visit to
Nokia's flagship stores in New York and Chicago to get it yourself, or
$504.99 on Amazon.

platform and with multiple ways to connect to the Internet, the Nokia

in the palm of their hands.
Consumers from every segment of the population are looking for more
out of their mobile device – more power, more ability, more
connectivity. The Nokia N900 ushers in a new era with a very powerful
mobile computer, said Alessandro Lamanna, Vice President, Retail Sales,
Nokia. With an open source operating system, incorporated technology
like an OMAP processor, and real time web widgets, the Nokia N900
delivers the experience of a pocketable computer that has the

With the Linux-based Maemo operating platform, 32GB of storage and

consumers no longer need to leave everything that makes them them

music – anywhere but on their Nokia N900. With the Nokia N900, you
don't have to worry about missing that next great moment.
Additionally, with the ability to multitask several applications or web
browsers at once, the Nokia N900 allows for users to eliminate boredom

while talking on instant message with friends – all at the same

to commercial and everything in between; such as podcasting, Twitter and
