Nokia limits N900 shipments to pre-order customers

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia fans hoping to pick up one of its N900 
| Linux-based smartphone-cum-tablets on the high 
| street may finally be able to do so on 4 
| December.
| An unnamed Nokia spokesperson yesterday told 
| website NokNok that the sheer volume of advance 
| orders the Finnish phone giant has taken for 
| the N900 means even though the first of these 
| Maemo-based handsets are going out now, only 
| folk who pre-ordered will get one in the short 
| term.



âAnd the survey says: Nokia N900 is a developers dream!

,----[ Quote ]
| Because the Nokia N900 is based on a Linux OS
| it is completely open-source, which means
| apps no longer have to be based solely on the
| Symbian platform. In this sense, the N900
| opens up Nokia to a whole new cattle of
| developers, which means a load of new,
| innovative, and useful applications, widgets
| and features for the N900. But donât just
| take our word for itâ


15 Ways Nokiaâs N900 Is Better Than Appleâs iPhone (and 5 ways itâs not)

,----[ Quote ]
| For almost 3 years, Appleâs iPhone has set
| the standard for mainstream smart phones.
| Recently, Apple has taken over a large
| portion of the smart phone market, now
| manufacturers like Nokia are taking the
| iPhone threat seriously and bringing out
| new phones to try to compete. One phone
| that looks like it has a real chance to
| compete with the iPhone is Nokiaâs new N900
| phone/internet tablet. Here are 15 ways we
| think that the N900 is better than the
| iPhone, and a few reasons why the iPhone is
| still better.
