Amazon offering unlocked Nokia N9 to be shipped September 23rd
We reported the other day that the Nokia N9 would not be launched Stateside. And while it looks like the MeeGo flavored device will not land on a subsidized carrier, the phone can be pre-ordered unlocked from Amazon at a price of $500 for the 16GB version or $650 for the 32GB variant. The Nokia N9 will be shipped on September 23rd which also happens to be when the now-removed countdown timer on Nokia's Swedish web site would have been down to the zeroes.

The Nokia N9 is the first pure touchscreen phone as it is made without any buttons on the front of the device. Gestures are used to navigate your way around the screen. For example, to leave an app and head back to the home page, the Nokia N9 user simply swipes from the edge of the right screen to the left. You can also see a thumbnail look at all of the apps you have open at one time and tap on the picture to return to the app.

The Nokia N9 is made from a single slab of polycarbonate and is available in cyan, black and magenta. The screen is 3.9 inches of AMOLED goodness with a 480 x 854 resolution. Under the hood is a TI OMAP3630 1GHz CPU with the PowerVRSGX530 GPU and 1GB of RAM is aboard. An 8MP camera with a Carl Zeiss superwide 28mm lens captures video at 720p with a speed of 30fps. The smartphone supports HTML5 video and is NFC enabled.

As we told you, Nokia plans on having a limited launch of the N9 as carriers in other countries besides the U.S. like the U.K. and Germany, among others, will not officially offer the phone

Those limitations to US, UK and Germany don't mean anything. People always find a way, an online store, to buy this device. Nokia simply isn't releasing it officially.
And yes, it IS a very di*k move by Nokia.

Yeah man, but Nokia decided not to use American carriers mainly because of WP7,5_Mango, is a big deal for them. Nokia N9, may be a great phone, may have a potential because of new cross-platform system, Maemo, but unfortunately Microsoft is Microsoft, can anyone, except Google and Apple, compete with them?

The name of the seller is Hot Gadgets, it is a brand new seller with no history, supposedly comes from UK, has no webpage, neither can you find any info about him.

C´mon Phonearena, are you really so desperate to publish as many articles as possible, or you just don´t do any research to verify the credibility of your sources?

Amazon.de has the N9 on pre-order for 619 EUR and a credible UK online retailer has it for 519 pounds.

I would love to get this phone. But the only thing I'm worried about is that since Nokia isn't releasing the N9 to the U.S which means they won't support any update(*bug fix, new features, etc) available for the phone even through the Nokia Suite program, right? Because my friend can't update her Nokia C3-01 Touch Type anymore because Nokia pulled Symbian support out of the US. Anyone that knows about this, you're welcome to reply.

Don´t worry. If you buy this phone e.g. from UK and don´t mess up with its FW, you will receive the same level of support as customers in UK.
It doesn´t really matter where you reside, important is the FW version. In other words, which version of the phone you have (for which region). For example If I bought a phone in France and then moved to Canada, all updates would be available for me as soon as they become available in France.

@rob the n900 is actually more in the line of a internet tablet or a mobile computer. as u can see from its roots the n800,n810 etc were all internet tablets

Well I'm back on. Looks like I will be getting a Nokia Windows Phone with my upgrade and also get the N9 from Amazon. I'm OK with this.
