The Nokia N900 will not go on sale this month as had previously been suggested, according to the head of Maemo marketing at Nokia.
In an interview with Espoo, Peter Schneider disclosed that contrary to recent reports, the N900 is set to “start shipping during November 2009”. This is a month later than the phone was originally expected to land on contract deals.
Mr Schneider did not give a reason for the delay, but did reveal that Nokia had given out 300 of the phones to users to test and give feedback regarding their experiences.
This is being interpreted as a sign that the launch has been put back to allow the company to make some last-minute adjustments to the handset.
Features of the N900 include a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a powerful processor.
Perhaps the key selling point of the upcoming mobile phone, however, is that it is to be the first phone to feature the latest version of Nokia’s Maemo software.
