Nokia N9 release date pushed to mid-September?
The Nokia N9 flaunts one of the speediest and most impressive cameras out there, but the MeeGo-running device might be delayed and hit shelves only in mid-September, contrary to early talk about it rolling out in the middle of August. The first piece of evidence came from Orange Switzerland which listed the handset with a release date set for September 15th, while later a number of Russian retailers including second-largest phone seller Svyaznoy confirmed that they expect the phone to arrive in mid-September.

Nokia N9 release date pushed to mid-September?
This would mean that the phone is likely to meet even more competition from the very successful internationally and soon-to-arrive stateside Samsung Galaxy S II as well as the iPhone 5, which is rumored to land in either September or October. The Nokia N9 however is expected to land in only limited Western markets, most probably excluding the US and the UK.

The swipe-centric MeeGo UI will only debut on the Nokia N9 as it's more of an experimental project for the Finns who chose to adopt Windows Phone as their main platform back in February.

I know this is a stupid question but, is this phone going to be available to Verizon customers?

That's what sucks about these new articles. They never say what carriers the good phones go to. Just a release date. Then I get PO'd when it doesn't hit my carrier. So annoying...

No. Nokia historically makes GSM handsets, ergo, no Nokias on Sprint, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS, Boost, Virgin, Cricket, etc. AT&T & T-Mobile are good to go though.

That's true but recently Nokia stated that they might be throwing some CDMA handsets to the US, but more than likely the N9 won't have a CDMA version.

No it won't but I think you can get it unlocked for T-mobile and AT&T
