Vodafone to sell N900 from next month

Nokia N900

Vodafone has confirmed that Nokia's Linux-based N900 handset will be coming to its network early in the new year.

The device was tipped to arrive on the network as early as November, but Vodafone has now confirmed that it will be making its debut in January.

No other Vodafone-specific details are available as yet, but users can register for updates on the Vodafone website.

In addition to running the Maemo operating system, the N900 also boasts built-in GPS, a QWERTY keyboard, a five megapixel camera, an ARM Cortex-A8 processor and 32GB memory.

"What's exciting is the Maemo software, which takes its cues from the desktop computer and offers a full browsing experience like no other handset," Jos-Luis Martinez, vice president of Nseries at Nokia, said in a statement earlier in the year.

"We believe the Nokia N900 will be a very compelling device for people who are passionate about technology."
