Nokia has delayed the launch of its new Maemo 5 based handset named Nokia N900, due to some unspecified reasons. The launch of this smartphone was expected at the end of October, but according to the reports it seems that the phone will launch during the end of November.
The November shipping date can be seen on Nokia UK’s online store and has been also unveiled by Peter Schneider, head of Maemo Marketing, Nokia Corporation.
“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.” says Peter Schneider, Head of Maemo Marketing.
The Nokia N900 comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen display and a 5 mega-pixel camera with dual LED flash. Other features includes a sliding QWERTY keyboard, TV-out, HTML browser, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, 32 GB of internal memory and 16 GB of external storage.
The price of this smartphone is around $649 / £499, but you can pre-order this amazing device for $565.
