First things first, don’t confuse the Nokia N900 with Nokia’s N and E series smartphones. The N900 uses the Linux-based Maemo operating system instead of Symbian S60 and is related to the N700 and N800 series of internet tablets that Nokia has produced over the past several years…

Like the N800 models, the N900 has a pull-out QWERTY keyboard as well as a touch screen.

The N900 isn’t shipping the U.S. yet. But, I found that Amazon already has a discounted price for an unlocked model usable on any GSM based network (AT&T & T-Mobile in the U.S.). Amazon’s pre-order price for the N900 is $582.99 (compare this to the $649 list price).
