Nokia N900: Delayed ‘Til November

October 24, 2009

Nokia’s October launch for the N900 smartphone has been delayed until November, according to a number of sources and Nokia’s USA store. The reasons are still unclear, although some people have suggested that bugs found on pre-production units might be to blame.

The N900 is Nokia’s latest and greatest handset, featuring the Linux-based Maemo OS.

This latest news (and a lot of angry posts that I’ve seen on various forums) makes me wonder why Nokia (and other companies) doesn’t just follow Apple’s example when it comes to releasing products. Instead of announcing a product months in advance, only to have it delayed for some reason or another, why not just announce/release it when it’s actually ready? This has the side advantage of not tipping your hand to your competitors, too.
