Yes, I see what you mean. I donít expect any hardware changes to be made to the N900. Also [so far] Iím not hearing about any hardware related issues. Itís all software.
But just wait a little bit until early adopters have the units in their hands and see what they say. If there are no complaints about the hardware when many people are using the device (especially when they have paid £500 for it) then you can expect no changes.

yes, there might be a replacement for there N900, but not now, what i mean is the same N900 which we are having it now, is there going to be another release in terms of new hardware where else will be same??..
for example, if u remember, the E90 had 2 version:
1)- first one was the keyboard buttons & the hardware was a little bit not that comfortable, then Nokia released that same E900 with adjusted keyboard & strong hardware.
so my Q is: is N900 will face the same???
all the best
hope you got ehat i want to say..:)

In case you didnít know, over the last 18 months or so Nokia USA have had some fantastic sales, sometimes online and sometimes in their stores (in an attempt to garner some US market and mind share). The discounts varied widely from 40% to something like 55% if I remember correctly. However these were usually only for a few hours e.g. 3hrs on a specific evening online but once they started doing them they would repeat them for a few weeks with different offers. I havenít heard of such a sale for a while but itís worth keeping an eye on the Nokia website as well as certain Tech blogs.
I think that you were looking at the N900 and the Droid, right? The N900 is currently $480 at Amazon including a $50 MIR. The Droid is currently $150 at Amazon with a 2 year Verizon contract. Looking at the Verizon and T-Mobile websites it looks like the cheapest packages that offer the basics of voice, text and Internet are $100 on Verizon and $60 on T-Mobile (but with no contract required on T-Mobile).
0v0, 20 Nov 2009thanks 4 the details

This is assuming that Maemo 6 will be released in about 10 or 11 months along with the N900 replacement, which makes sense since 6 introduces multi-touch and capacitive screen support. The current plan is to go Alpha in Q1 2010 and Beta in Q2 2010. This could mean a public device release in Q4 2010. If all goes to plan there isnít much time for a new phone above the N900.
Having said that, I normally like to let electronic products ďsettleĒ for a little while before buying them because manufacturers often make silent changes to the hardware to take care of problems. However with the short 1-year cycle we are now seeing with mobile phones I donít think that they bother fixing hardware problems in current models anymore, they just do it in the next one.

Only one version of the hardware has been announced so far and that is the current one. It is possible that Nokia will announce a version with different 3G radios (but exactly the same otherwise) in the near future but that looks unlikely considering that they arenít even planning to ship this device in many countries. Perhaps next year.
I think that they will just try to get this model out the door and then work on software upgrades for it for a while. I donít know if they will do another phone before Maemo 6 is released but I would like to see them also release a proper tablet with a much larger screen 5.5Ē-7Ē also running Maemo and with GSM and 3G radios. A strategy that sees them using the same version of the OS on phones and larger screen tablets makes sense since it gives developers a larger user base and gives N810 users an upgrade path to a large screen device.

Spending $600 in a cell phone right now is out of the question. Even if I really want to!
This delay is a lie
i have ordered off mobilephone direct and i am canceling it as i never get a reply to my emails or my phone calls as there are some questions i have, never mind them sending me one, its too hard work for them!!
customer service is pants
Went and checked out the Nokia N900 in the flagship store in London today. Seeing is believing! The touchscreen is quite good and I love the multiple desktop function. I also went on youtube and it actually plays the videos on the website... it has a very minor lag while playing the video though... but I can assume nokia may fix this in a firmware update!

I doubt that this was the cause of the delay. The phones are shipping with portrait mode only in the phone application and the contacts you search to dial the phone. That thread talks about the development of portrait mode for the browser which ties in with what I heard earlier this month:
Portrait mode for the browser in December this year
Portrait mode for *some* applications next year
Does anyone know if I can play LIVE Streaming MUSIC (say from: www.di.fm/ ; www.iheard.com/ ; www.mpr.org/ ; www.blogtalkradio.com)?????
