danny_dumasWired.com and Wired Magazine is a popular award winning US tech publisher popular with 25-50 year old male college grads making $100k+ per year, tech enthusiasts, and the Silicon Valley tech community. With a magazine circulation of just over 705,000, and a website with 11.2 million unique users per month (it says alot for your audience when they prefer the online information to the paper periodical), it represents a popular media outlet amongst the target demographic for the Nokia N900.

Danny Dumas, their hip, young Reviews Editor, has gotten his hands on the N900. On their Gadget Lab blog, he gives a short but thorough video overview of the N900, which he described as a "portable desktop device", which I think fits perfectly. Wired is credited with coining the term crowdsourcing, and may have just coined a new one I think fits aptly.

Pointing out its internet tablet plus phone configuration, Dumas points out its Linux operating system's hacker/developer friendliness, along with multitasking and the high quality camera. He also pointed out audio streaming via the gesture enabled Mozilla based web browser, which he sees as an advantage, retorting "Suck That, iPhone!"

He found the price of the device to be a good value, stating, "$650 may sound like alot, but actually, it's not, considering how much power the N900 packs into it." His overall perception of the device was pretty good across the board, and considers the N900 "a fantastic bargain."

I think this review is an almost perfect commercial for the N900. It explains the device in a simple and concise manner without sounding to geeky. The US is severely lacking in enough information about high end smart devices from Nokia, and finally someone America's tech denizens really listen to have begun to speak up. This review gives all of the goods in a way techies and normal consumers can all understand. Good job, Wired!

Let's hope we see more reviews like this from the traditional American tech press.Wired.com and Wired Magazine is a popular award winning US tech publisher popular with 25-50 year old male college grads making $100k+ per year, tech enthusiasts, and the Silicon Valley tech community.
