Nokia has officially unveiled its first Linux powered smartphone couple of months ago on 27 August, but only started taking pre-orders for the device last month but unfortunately company failed to deliver phone as promised which makes the long wait even more frustrating!
However, it seems that long wait is nearly over, as Softpedia and Pocket Lint reports that phone is rumored to make an appearance in the US as soon as on November 14, while it is expected to hit the shelves in the UK two days later on November 16.
Nokia's highly anticipated smartphone will be available on Orange with £0 price if the buyer agree to signing 2-year contract for £35 monthly data plan. Mobile comparison site Omio also reveals that it will be able on contract for £20 per month, although that'll be a two year contract and you'll have to shell out a £170 initial fee for just 200 minutes and 300 texts a month.
A similar 24-month deal from O2 for £30 per month will net you 600 minutes, and the phone itself will only cost £10. If you're determined to get the handset free, then a 24-month deal from Orange will set you back £35 per month with 900 minutes.
The cheapest 18-month contact is £25 per month, again from Orange, with 600 minutes and £220 upfront phone cost.
The word from Orange is that they will not be stocking the Nokia N900 themselves, with “no plans to launch it at this time – if we do at all.” In which case, these deals from BuyMobilePhones are likely to be a standard Orange SIM only package bundled with a subsidised, unlocked handset, rather than Orange’s own doing.
Whilst you may be in for a long wait if you’re looking to buy an N900 from Orange directly, these competitive third-party retailer prices mean Nokia’s super-computer is set to be within reach of the average consumer…
