My New Phone: The Nokia N900

It's been what..Two years? Three years? Time to buy a new cellphone. I really wanted the Palm Pre -- I've always liked the Palm family -- but it's sold exclusively by Bell and as any resident of Quebec would tell you, Bell has the worst customer services in the world, may they rot in Hell!

Don't want an IPhone because of the cult attitude of its users, so what's left? I give you the Nokia N900!!!!

From  http://www.infosyncworld.com/reviews/cell-phones/nokia-n900/10470.html 

The Nokia N900 has finally been officially announced, slated for release in October 2009 with a price tag that might surprise you.

If you were disappointed by the underpowered Nokia N97, it may be worth waiting until October for the Nokia N900 in stead. Put simply, Nokia's new N900 boasts technology that is worthy of a high-end smartphone today combined with software for the future. 

The Nokia N900 will come equipped with a slide-out QWERTY thumbboard, Quad-band GSM network support, 10/2 Mbps HSPA connectivity (with T-Mobile USA support) as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 support. Limited RAM has been an issue on the previous generation of Maemo based tablets, but the Nokia N900 will offer 256 MB RAM plus 768 MB virtual memory. This will especially be crucial for the desktop-grade, Mozilla based browser to deliver the goods as promised. The Nokia N900 is also powered by an ARM Cortex-A8 processor and 3D graphics acceleration with support for OpenGL ES 2.0. 

The Nokia N900's 3.5-inch WVGA display is of the resistive touchscreen kind, meaning that it responds both to finger and stylus navigation. A complete overview of the Nokia N900's capabilities can be found here, revealing that Widgets will just be a small part of the package. Our hope is that Maemo 5 ... and the N900 will silence the Widget craze to some extent, and that developers will be encouraged to develop real applications again. 

In addition to the new Mozilla based browser, the Nokia N900 will offer a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash. The camera should also be capable of recording WVGA video, while a front-faced camera will act as a VGA web camera. The smartphone will also be capable of video and audio playback, and offers up to 32GB of internal storage as well as a microSD memory slot capable of holding 16GB cards. A 3.5mm headphone jack has also been incorporated. 

The Nokia N900 will be available in October 2009 with the healthy price tag of 500 EUR (around 700$) before taxes and carrier subsidies.

Happy to see I won't be the only one in Quebec (Montreal?) to have this n900... Just ordered from expansys-usa.com after getting an answer from nokia.ca that they don't know the canadian release date (go figure!). Also 650 USD was less than 750 CAD on expansys.ca.

Anyone found other places to order?

Alex, have you tried searching for a local seller, maybe from an ethnic community? I think they sell cheaper. I went to expansys-usa.com but they charge an extra 7.5% tax, plus 21$ for shipping, so I'm still looking.
