Rumors around the Internet state that the Nokia N900 will be coming out in late October or early November at a price of 600 EURO.
Nokia said that it will provide carrier customization for the N900. Couple of days ago sources suggested that the handset maker would not alter the phone’s Maemo software to suit the needs of operators.
Today on the company’s Nokia Connections blog, Nokia said:
a few people are getting ahead of themselves in terms of drawing conclusions about the company’s plans for the N900. While we have not announced immediate plans to offer an operator variant for the N900, there are many customization points for operators on the N900,
The company further said:
It would be absolutely incorrect to assume that we will not offer operators the ability to tailor future Maemo devices to suit their needs.
Nokia said its goal with Maemo is to focus on the consumer experience by integrating applications, and working with developers, publishers and operators.
David Rivas, Nokia’s vice president for devices R&D said:
Very clearly Apple, Android … are a whole lot less about providing customization to the operators and a whole lot more about providing a really cool, compelling value proposition to the end-consumer,
According to a Reuters:
We have an opportunity, that we are going to take advantage of, with Maemo platform to play the game a little bit more along those lines than with Symbian lines.
Jose-Luis Martinez said towards the closing of Nokia World 2009 in Stuttgart, and it is confirmed that Nokia will sell the device in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the same day it hits markets in Europe and the United States.
There’s a lot of passion for Nokia Nseries in the Middle East.
The N900 will not be available in all markets in the world (this year) because we are still creating the platform; so we need to create languages and some assets, but definitely we will prioritise the typical Latin versions and the Arab versions. We are planning to sell in Saudi and lower Gulf from day zero.
According to company reports, the N900 ‘high-performance mobile computer’ will be on shelves as early as next month.
Estimated cost of 500 Euro, Martinez added that local pricing for the N900 won’t be different from other international markets, and won’t deter consumers from picking up the company’s first Linux-based offering.
The Middle East will also be among the first to receive the Mini N97 smartphone. Nokia had earlier revealed that the first N97 smartphone to be sold worldwide was in Dubai following its launch in June this year.

The Nokia N900 is now official, well in image form at least. The first image of the new Nokia N900 tablet has emerged online and it looks awesome. This is an official shot showing the 3.5-inch tablet in all its glory.
The Nokia N900 has turned up in the form of an official, albeit ‘leaked’, image. If Yesterday’s announcement of the Nokia Booklet 3G wasn’t enough news for the week BEFORE Nokia World 2009, well this image confirms that Nokia has more good stuff coming out in the remainder of this year than every other company can put together.
Specs of the Nokia N900 include:
- 3.5-inch touchscreen
- 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics
- Maemo OS
- 32GB internal storage
- HSDPA connectivity
There is little extra in the way of hard facts to accompany the image, other than it confirms the presence of a strikingly similar look to the Nokia N97 flagship S60 5th Edition device. You will noticed that the front camera and other sensors have been grouped together on the Nokia N900 tablet.
The image shows a nice clean interface very much keeping in sync with the images from the Mobile Review preview of the Nokia N900. The use of Maemo 5 instead of Symbian S60 looks like it could well be paving the way for the platform’s use in future Nokia handsets.
N900′s shelf price is set at about €550, but this, along with carrier details is yet to be confirmed.
