The UK gets it first from Thursday
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"

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.
Vinny, 17 Nov 2009I knew people would complain about the N900 not being here on november 16th.
The funny thing,... moreVinny,
Not to argue, but this is not complaining and shows the curiousity of people for N900.
In official nokia sites like Maemo and in Nokia conversations it was already indicated that the shippment has started and this is not a speculation.
We are not expecting earlier than the date announced. Once we had a delay for improvements, agreeable, but after that they gave a hope. But still they dont stick to it, which is really not a good factor!
Instead of blindly offending, nokia needs to revise its marketing strategy!
I am really wondering why different nokia sites states different information.
BTW, in maemo.org there are two dedicated threads running regarding the shipment!
INTRODUCING NOKIA for you. this is the best phone experience i have ever had. tooo tooo good a phone. but still need to confirm the battery life. as its NOKIA hope it keeps upto it.
i will go for it .
as i previously stated, its release is this thursday for the uk. a nokia repl told me. but networks like tmobile and vodafone wont have in until the 30th november
I knew people would complain about the N900 not being here on november 16th.
The funny thing, as I said before, is that Nokia NEVER said it would be released by the 14th or 16th. Those are dates that some website or stores such as Newegg dicided to claim.
Since the beginning of november, Nokia's official website ALWAYS stated "end of the month" as the release time.
So, please people, stop complaining about nokia "delaying the phone". The only time they delayed it was when they switched the release time from "end of october" to "end of november". (and even then, it was to get feedback from those lucky people who got one of the 300 pre-series).
All the other dates are rumors from impatient users or website stores.
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2009I agree. But in Swiss now we have good offers for PostPaid with Orange. We are waiting curious... moreUnderstood clearly but you see to make a retaliatory purchase of a lesser phone would not hurt anyone but you. The N900 is going to be a major milestone (No pun intended toward Motorola) for the mobile smartphone. You've waited this long. A little longer won't hurt, will it?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I agree. But in Swiss now we have good offers for PostPaid with Orange. We are waiting curiously for long period and already some offers are over!
Till now there is no news about availability despite of Nokia announcing 16th November as date of shipment.
I guess nokia marketing is getting more and more horrible with providing unreaistic dates, just to cover the crowd and to prevent people switching to other handsets.
So far I bougt several handsets all nokia and Symbian Touch is really not worthy. I thought this will be a ray of hope, but to add disappointment, we hear only we hear the delays. Hope you understand :( !
Check the video.
I guess we can expect at least a preview soon.
