Contrary to what we had heard earlier from Nokia, US citizens can now pick up a non-tariffed, USA version of the Nokia N9 for $650 from Amazon.
Although MeeGo is basically dead, reviews for the N9 have been generally positive. Plus, $650 for an unlocked smartphone is a good deal, especially when the phone that you are buying is a good one.
If you want to take advantage of the deal, I'd suggest that you head on over to Amazon and place your order. If you're also an Amazon Prime member, you can get it shipped to you as early as tomorrow for just $3.99.
Then again, there are plenty of cheaper alternative smartphones that run operating systems that are still supported. Even off-contract, there are plenty of deals to be had from online retailers such as Negri Electronics. But if you're a fan of Nokia hardware and software, this is probably a deal you won't want to pass up.[Amazon via GottaBeMobile]
