Well the N900 is out now and all Nokia crazy wannabe Linux phone owners from India might have skipped a heart beat if they saw the official announcement for the N900. Towards the end of the official release email , it reads as follows
The Nokia N900 will be available in select markets from October 2009 with an estimated retail price of EUR 500 excluding sales taxes and subsidies.
What does that mean ? India has not been one of those select markets in the past. For instance the N770, N800 and N810 linux internet tablets never made it here. Only USA , Europe were lucky enough to get them. Hope Nokia does not disappoint users in India over the launch of the N900. Also the price of the N900 is around 500 euros plus taxes , so the indian price (if it’s launched ) should be around Rs.35000.
That being said, don’t loose hope . We are giving away a N900 on FoneArena pretty soon. Stay tuned for announcements and keep an eye on our Nokia World 2009 Coverage. We will bring you live pictures , videos and lots more live from Stuttgart , Germany.
