Nokia N900 coming to the US on September 27?
However, The Nokia Blog has it that a major US distributor will receive the new Maemo-based device on September 27, and start offering it a few days later.
The N900 will be sold at the pre-order price – $649.
Since the smartphone (or Internet Tablet, if you want to call it that way) has quad-band GSM (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900) and tri-band WCDMA (900 / 1700 / 2100) connectivity, it will work on T-Mobile’s network. Of course, it can also be used with AT&T, but without 3G.
Coming as Nokia’s first Maemo-based device to have phone capabilities, the N900 features a 3.5 inch touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, GPS, FM transmitter, stereo speakers, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP Carl Zeiss camera with video recording, and 32GB of internal memory (expandable with a MicroSD card).
Nokia recently said that it supports carrier customization for its Maemo products, so we shouldn’t be surprised if T-Mobile USA will soon offer the N900 on contract.
