Nokia confirms delay of N900 handset

Nokia will delay the release of its flagship N900 smartphone to November, Peter Schneider, the head of Maemo marketing at Nokia indicated on Friday. This represents a near one month delay and is apparently due to a wait for the feedback of software developers who received 300 pre-production units. The device will be the first from the world's top phone maker to use an open-source Linux operating system.

The device will have a 3.5-inch touchscreen with 800x480 resolution in addition to a hardware slide-out keyboard. The N900 is said to have full Flash 9.4 support. It will include a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU and a graphics chipset that supports OpenGL ES 2.0 features. GPS, Wi-Fi and 256MB of RAM are onboard, as is HSPA 3G support. There is a 5-megapixel camera and 32GB of onboard storage in addition to a microSDHC slot that allows for the addition of 16GB.

Prices for an unlocked, unsubsidized device are expected to come in around $750. [via Maemo]
