Nokia N900 Pre-Order Details/Offers

A few weeks ago, I started a poll on The Symbian Blog about whether you will buy a Nokia N900 and here is how the results are progressing so far.

N900 - Will You Buy Poll

So if you fall in those 48% that would like to own a N900, I’d like to remind you that Nokia started taking pre-ordes for the N900 a little while ago and they have slowly been adding more and more countries to the ones that will get the N900 first. As of today, you can pre-order a N900 if you live in any of these countries:

The price of the N900 is 499 Pounds if you are in the UK, 599 Euro if you in Europe and $650 if you are in the US. But if you are in the US, there is an even better deal to be had via Amazon, they have it listed for $582.99.  In some countries, Nokia also has promotions such as a free Bluetooth headset if you Pre-Order.

Demo'ing The N900 Browser – Music Video Style

Apart from the awesome hardware and great design, one of the biggest strengths of the N900 its new ‘Maemo Browser’ that promises to brings the full ‘desktop experience’ to the palm of your hand. Marketing speak, aside how well does the N900 browser actually fare? Check out this awesome video to get an idea of its capabilities.

But since that was a little too ‘touched up’ watch this video for a something a little more fair. The word on the street is that it is way better than the experience of the current crop of Nokia smartphones like the N97 running the Symbian OS provide. Since devices like the N97 already support flash and the N900 is touted to be better, I am pretty excited about the capabilities. What do you think?
