I like the sound of being part of the bulk-buy but please do check for duty fee and GST tax.

If a group buy is going to happen then please count this 'wannabe' in. Time to retire my trusty N95.

Amazon are now offering a $50 rebate, meaning they are now selling the Nokia N900 for only $509.99!!!

No one seems to agree when the Nokia N900 will actually arrive in peoples hands.
Nokia has to ship all the pre-orders and send the phone to retailers, and given that Nokia was ambiguous about when the phone will be stocked, I would not be surprised if the phone arrives in December.

Newegg changed its release date to 30-Nov-09.
Amazon USA changed its price to $509.99.
Mobile City Online change its price to $529.99 after a post purchase rebate.
Buy.com unlisted the N900 again.

Well people...the last couple days on Amazon have been interesting...

The Nokia N900 was $559 for quite some time...
Then Amazon dropped it to $509 with a $50 rebate...
Then I noticed that lasted only a couple days and Amazon put the price back up to $559, which included the $50 rebate...
Now...Amazon has just dropped the price again, to $480!!!

$480!!!

Some serious savings to be made there, if ya quick.

Well, I placed an order at that price. May yet be turned down due to address constraints, but will call the credit card company tomorrow and see if they can add my 'US address' as an alternate address on my card, since thats what Newegg suggests as a workaround.

As always, I will post up my experience.

(incidentally, my trial shipment from shipito arrived in the country today - should be delivered tomorrow)

So you have ordered it to go to the US shipito address yes, but have used your own credit card with NZ address?
Be interesting to see if Amazon apply that rule regarding credit card being the same address as the shipping address...if they don't, then sweet as.

Yup, we'll see - I'm adding my shipito address to my credit card as an alternate address to see whether that works (Newegg suggest that).

EDIT: Just got off phone from the bank. They added the address as my primary billing address, had no problems whatsoever, I just explained that I needed the address that way to make a purchase from the States and required billing and shipping addresses to match. So should be all set now. Including shipping (1 one day shipping from Amazon to the US addy, then Fedex international priority to here) and exchange rates, the total should be about $700NZ. Wow.

Hmm... that sound doable... but I'm not that adventurous with that approach :-( Will it be 3g 900/2100? or 850/2100 for the model selling on Amazon?
