I'll admit - I was considering the purchase of a Nokia N900 to carry in the ol' arsenal of wireless devices, until I saw the price. Even as a certified wireless junkie, $649 is a bit too much for me (hey, I need to pay the rent first). I haven't been this excited about a Nokia device in quite some time, thanks to Maemo 5. The name of the game seems to be social networking, and from my limited time with the N900 at CTIA, it seems like Nokia gets it.
Thanks to Amazon, the N900's price has dropped to $479.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. For a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, 32 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, phenomenal browser, 5.0-megapixel camera, and Maemo 5, I'd definitely consider one for $480 after rebates. It's still listed in pre-order status, but with a ship date right around the corner, you could have this sucker in your hands in the coming weeks. I'd like to know - are you biting, or are you waiting for a US carrier release?
