The Maemo 5 powered Nokia N900 is one hot handset and is available right now for pre-order from the Nokia USA online store. The cost of the device is $649 and shipping is expected in October. This is the first Maemo powered phone offered by Nokia, and the Finnish manufacturer is planning a whole line of such devices. The model is currently configured with a radio that works on T-Mobile's 3G spectrum so there is a chance that some U.S. cellphone users will have a shot at buying the N900 for a subsidized contract price in the future. But if you must be the first on your block with the N900, you can put the wheels in motion now to malke sure that come October, you'll be the one showing off the phone to your jealous friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
