From what I can see from the folks on this site the N900 is available in the US for about $550 but in the UK for £499.
At todays exchange rate of 1.68 that means in the UK we are paying $838 for the same phone.
Typical UK retail rip off !!
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to order one from the US? but with UK specs?
Nokia is always great, and has demonstrated its greatness again in n900. I love it. My only concern is the price. Can it ever come down?

how is it that this is just about available now and there are a million previews on youtube yet gsmarena doesnt even have a preview/review?
I went to the nokia flagship store in Regent Street London and they are setting up a dedicated lounge for the nokia n900! They said it will be opened by the end of the week!!!
vinny, 17 Nov 2009no arguing here ;)
I understand your point of view.
yes, some people are just showing their ... moreyeaaa, i am with you buddy,,:)
when Nokia says start shipping, this doesn't mean the N900 will be availble the next day,,,minimum takes 2-4 weeks till the sales starts...
"The #N900 selling on Thursday 19th November in our Flagship Store. £499 Sim Free. Be the first to have it"
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2009Vinny,
Not to argue, but this is not complaining and shows the curiousity of people for N90... moreno arguing here ;)
I understand your point of view.
yes, some people are just showing their interest. I think that's the case when I see people saying: " please nokia! hurry up!" or this kind of things.
Now when I read " nokia are crap! they delayed this phone again!", that's when I think people are misinformed by rumors. ;)
I agree also with you when you say nokia officially said they started shipping. And I think they did, but they never said: "ok, it's gonna take 2 days now to get all those N900 into the consumers hands".
Those are all rumors from websites and discussion forums (like you said, even from maemo community, but nevertheless, from blogs and forums, never from officials).
I think (but this is pure speculation), that they are waiting for all the stores (online or in the streets) to receive all their shipment and get ready.
I agree with you, it's kind of a shame, especially for those who ordered from nokia's website and paid full price (at least if you pay $650 from the nokia online store, i think you deserve to get your hands on it first).
but yes, I understand it can be frustrating, especially when rumors come from discussion forums like "maemo community" or from nokia's discussion forum. Nokia should'nt let those rumors spread in that kind of forums. They should have somebody official in those to deny or confirm some facts.
