HELSINKI, Nov 10 (Reuters) – Nokia (NOK1V.HE) has started deliveries of its new top-of-the-range model N900, a key product for the world’s top phone maker in its battle against rivals iPhone and Blackberry.
Nokia Chief Executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said in a speech the company started deliveries of the phone on Tuesday.
The Nokia press site has not yet been updated, but hopefully soon..
Update: The Nokia Conversations Blog is now covering the shipping, saying:
Today sees the first batch of Nokia N900 handsets boxed up and shipped out on their maiden voyage into wild.
Hooray! Now does this mean that they are being shipped from the factory to the resellers, or are already at the resellers ready to go to customers ?
Update 2: Well it appears, according to this blog post, to be from the factory to resellers..
The shipments of the Nokia N900 have now started. The factories are now working full speed and the devices are on their way to distribution.
So it does look like Amazon won’t have theirs to ship to my friends in the US before I get to LA, so I’ll miss the chance to play with it for a while. Oh well at least they are shipping! 😉
