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
