U.S. distribution centers to get hands on Nokia N900 on September 23rd
Nokia's seek, sexy N900 is the Finnish company's first Maemo powered handset. Just on looks alone, the N900 has captured quite a buzz. In the States, the device is configured for T-Mobile, but there has been no announcement between Nokia and the nation's fourth largest wireless operator. Nonetheless, Nokia has told one of its major distribution centers in the U.S. to expect the unit to arrive on September 27th, according to the Nokia Blog. Retailers typically receive their allotment a few days afterward.

Sold on an unlocked basis at this point, the un-subsidized $650 price tag is sure to scare some off, especially since you will be laying out that hard earned cash for a device that will run on 3G if and only if T-Mobile can come to the bargaining table with Nokia and work out a deal. And yeah, you will get your 3G if that happens, but you will have missed getting the phone for a much cheaper, subsidized price that would be sure to follow an agreement. In the business world, that is a lose-lose situation. But we digress. Just looking at the device and watching what it can do, it looks like Nokia has a winner on its hands and it would be quite a feather in the cap of T-Mobile if they could get the first crack at offering the unit in the States.
