Nokia N900

You'll hear more from me when my Nokia N900 review hits the website, but all in all, I'm very impressed with the N900.  Featuring a fast processor, 32 GB of internal storage space, a large screen, and a new OS (that is neat in the fact that it's both innovative and not Symbian), it's one of the devices I would categorize as not being ready for mainstream use.  Why?  Among other reasons, the lack of a functioning app store.

As of today, Nokia is pushing the first software update to the N900, and though it doesn't provide software update doesn't provide anything in the way of new features, it does prepare the device for the introduction of the Ovi Store, which I'm told is coming an in official manner soon.  If you want to get around it for the time being, point your browser to

First step towards consumerization - could we see a subsidized N900 coming soon?  I know I'd be excited.
