Nokia N900 getting configured for 3G on AT&T/Rogers?
The sexy looking Nokia N900 has been confirmed for a landing at T-Mobile. The Maemo powered handset will be equipped with a radio working on the 900/1700/2100MHz bands which spells 3G for the nation's fourth largest carrier. One concerned AT&T customer named Alvin (when you hear that name, you can't stop hearing Dave Saville screaming ALLLL-VINNNN) wrote to Nokia asking if there were plans to make a N900 variant with the AT&T 3G spectrum. The Nokia employee who answered, Joe, recapped everything that had occurred up to the moment.  Yes, the N900 was announced but where it will be released was not made public. The handset will be launched in select regions. Yes, we announced that the radio on the device will cover the WCDMA 900/1700/2100MHz bands. No, we have not yet made an announcement regarding the 850/1900/2100MHz bands but "An announcement will be forthcoming."

Common sense would tell you that Nokia would not make an announcement just to say that a certain radio spectrum would not be covered on a new handset. Thus, the feeling is that the N900 and the Maemo goodness it brings, will indeed have a 3G version for AT&T/Rogers. As for Joe, we can only say thanks for the reply!
