The Nokia N900 is scheduled to be released in October, but it might come out just a little bit before that, if the distribution system works at maximum efficiency.
Nokia has let one of of its distributors know that this device, — which will be the first Maemo-based smartphone — is expected to arrive on Sept. 27. This company will then turn around and send it to retailers, who will then send it to customers.
This means that this high-end model could be in customer hands by the end of this month, or very early in October at the latest.
Amazon.com is already taking pre-orders for this smartphone at that price.
An Overview of the Nokia N900
This upcoming model will have the same general shape as Nokia’s earlier Internet Tablets: a slider with a large WVGA touchscreen and a landscape-oriented keyboard.
It will run a new version of Nokia’s open-source Linux-based operating system, Maemo 5, on an ARM Cortex-A8 processor. It will have up to 1 GB of application memory and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration.
This Nokia model will include a web browser based on Mozilla technology, and full Adobe Flash 9.4 support.
The Nokia N900 will have 32 GB of storage, which is going to be expandable up to 48 GB via a microSD card.
This mobile Internet device will be a GSM phone with HSPA 3G. It will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
In addition, it is going to have a 5 MPx camera and Carl Zeiss optics
