    I've been waiting for this phone for weeks, was suppost to be out on the 30th October, then its been delayed by a few weeks, with many sites saying 16th November for release date. I'm tempted to book Friday 17th of work to go the Nokia store in London to buy it, if it does get released then.

    Annoyed, the £500 is sitting in bank waiting to spend....

    Loved the Video of them playing Multiplayer Quake III on it.

    Has anyone else got one then? Mine is on order from mobilephonesdirect, they reckon it will be delivered on Monday!

    It looks like a decent bit of kit, though I am aware there are quite a few bugs in the OS at the moment.

    I got mine, it's a great piece of hardware, but the software (being brand new) has a few quirks that will need to be worked out. I'll post a bit more about it when I have a minute or 2 spare.

    Thanks to whoever merged my original thread (which was in the Phones/PDA forum) with Neon's one in General Chat.
    However, shouldn't it be back in the Phones forum??

    Mobile phones direct (which are part of Nokia), free with an 18 month Vodafone contract.

    If you can live without MMS, the N900 is my best phone (well PC) yet. Just goto youtube and search for N900 for loads of interface videos. I've had a game of Quake III multiplayer with somebody on a PC and me on my N900 that was fun.
