Nokia N900 Release Pushed Back to November. Amazon Taking Pre-Orders.
The Nokia N900 -first Maemo-based (Linux) smartphone - was scheduled to be released this month, but a high-level Nokia executive has confirmed a one month delay:
In reference to your questions on the expected shipment date of the Nokia N900, let me tell you the latest information from Nokia:
The Nokia N900 is a great example of what we and the open source community have been able to achieve with Maemo software. We are working closely with open source developers and for example, at the Maemo Summit in October, we loaned 300 pre-production units to get more feedback from the community. This feedback is extremely important to us and as such we also want to provide the best user experience with the Nokia N900.
We expect it to start shipping during November 2009.
Head of Maemo Marketing
In the meantime you can pre-order from Amazon here.
Okay, I straight up want one of these! Only problem is:
* Maemo 5 does not currently support MMS or underlying WAP-technology.
I wonder if that is going to be fixed in an update after the initial release?
Question - I see the two circles located in the upper left quadrant of the phone, outside of the screen. Does anyone know what those are? Initial assumption is that one is the sensor for light/dark mode shift. What is the other? Could that be a forward facing camera?
