Nokia N900 up for preorder at Amazon.com

Nokia_n900_amazon

Sure, the Nokia N900 has been available for preorder directly through Nokia USA with free standard shipping for about a week now, but if you live in an area that can also save you from paying sales tax, you might like to know that the Maemo 5 slider can now be purchased at Amazon.com too.

Amazon doesn't bundle the N900 with a free BH-703 Bluetooth headset the way Nokia does, but if you don't need a headset, don't want to pay tax, and/or just have some Amazon gift certificates you need to spend, the mega-retailer isn't a bad place to get rid of $649.

    Well, $649 USD is better than the straight conversion from the price in Euros but it is still too rich for my blood.

    One thing I am still confused about is whether the N900 will work on both T-Mobile and AT&T’s 3G networks. Since the phone is being sold unlocked with no “warning” that it will only work with T-Mo’s 3G, I am assuming that it will also be able to jump onto AT&T’s network with no problem. If not, then the product pages on Amazon and Nokia are misleading.

    I know I’d be pissed to spend $650 on a phone that turned out to be EDGE only on AT&T.

    It won’t work with AT&T 3G network, but will work for voice and 2G (EDGE).

    In order to know if, a foreign phone will work on U.S. 3G, U have to look for the specs of the phone. T-mo’s 3G uses 850mhz band frequency and AT&T uses 2100mhz. If those are not listed, U can only use 2G on the phone.

    AT&T uses 850 and 1900MHz. T-Mobile uses 1700 (?) and 2100MHz.

    I got it twisted. Thanks for the correction. AT&T use 850 and 1900 down and up. While T-mo Use 1700 and 2100 down and up.

    I’d get this in a heartbeat if only its 3G included 850/1900. It’s pricetag is hefty but not strong enough a deterrent against the attractiveness of all its features.
