Even though Nokia said it won't officially sell the MeeGo-running Nokia N9 stateside, retailer Expansys has taken care of customers by bringing the much anticipated devices to US shores.

The N9 also has a pretty capable 8-megapixel camera on its back to round up the package.

Maybe a mistake about the price ? Or also a mistake about the OS.

Wait a few months and pay 1/3 that price. I would know; I paid $699 for a N900 that dropped to $400 2 months after my purchase. Remember, this price point was set before Android *truly* exploded, before iOS was available with multiple price points (3G, 3GS, 4, 4S), and before Nokia, Intel, and The Linux Foundation altogether tossed Maemo/Moblin/Meego into a ditch to rot--permanently. Do not make the mistake I made by hoping Nokia will support this device for more than 6 months. You can hope in one hand and sh*t in the other and see which hand gets filled first...
