While the Europeans have already had their chance of ordering the fresh Nokia N900 handset, the Americans are only now able to pre-order the first Maemo 5-based device detailed by the Finns at Nokia World 2009.


The device goes for $649 via Nokia USA and its expected release date is October. We remind you that the handset weighs 181 grams and incorporates a very hot 3.5 inch TFT resistive touchscreen display, with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, proximity sensor, accelerometer and full QWERTY keyboard.

There’s an ARM Cortex A8 CPU (600 MHz) running the show beneath the case and you’ll also find a 5 megapixel camera at the back, with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual LED flash and geotagging, plus video recording.
