NZtechfreak, ya know I'm in....although...

How would we do it...do we entrust one person with all the cash to make the purchase? (risky, we don't know each other well enough)

Or do we arrange with the supplier/importer, and then we each pay the importer indivually before they come in?

Also, who do you think would be the best to deal with, offer the best price...should we all hit them up now and see what responses we all get, see who gets offered the best deal?

NZtechfreak: I'll probably get mine from one of the NZ parallel importers, but it depends on the respective prices, certainly I can ask them for a discount for purchasing multiple units...

True, we don't know each other, but as a Doctor I have far too much too lose by not acting in good faith... I'd be happy to meet with those in Auckland to deal in person, always good to meet in person with a few geekzoners. . . Whatever people need to feel secure enough, let me know...

c71931f: heres a new zealand price... http://www.expansys.co.nz/d.aspx?i=186949,

So the Nokia N900 will not work on xt then?

You again.


It is the same as my N97 you have been enquiring about on TradeMe...



The N900 at this point in time, only uses 900/2100GHz WCDMA...
The Telecom XT metwork operates using 850/2100GHz WCDMA...


So that means the N900, just like my N97, will only work on the 2100GHz WCDMA when used on Telecom's XT network...which is only used in the major centres...


I would not recommend this device for XT...but, I am sure that with time, Nokia will release a NAM version, which include 850/2100GHz which will be best suited for Telecom XT. 


Currently the N900 is best suited for Vodafone.

Hey guys, I am pretty keen on the N900 as well and I am a pharmacist that is quite keen on this deal that may happen.
I am just waiting on the release of this device so I can have a look at some reviews and some applications in action.
This phone looks better than an iphone and is unique but none of that matters if there arent any good applications or developers to backup this new era of Maemo. So ya lets see what Maemo Select has to offer.
Keep me posted. Thanks

All you need is the Styletap palm OS emulator software, then just install MIMs for palm on your n95, along with whatever other palm medical software you want to run...

I am definitely in I have been waiting with my money in the bank for a phone like this for years. Count me in for group importing. I am locked in with vodafone so don't have a problem with the 900mhz version.

Is 850mhz quite a rare frequency for most carriers or something?

Could be wrong, but I think more countries use the 900 Mhz frequency. So more of a market for 900Mhz.

Well, I am now committed, I have just sold my Nokia N97...although I am not handing it over to the new owner until October 1st.

So I'm ready...NZtechfreak...we just need to find an importer now...
I've already contacted Expert Infotech, but their answer not surprisingly, was as they don't yet have it in stock, they don't know the price and cannot give any answers yet.

I might ask some local family members if we got some relatives in the UK that could get these for us...but may be asking too much of a hassle for relatives I don't know...trying to negoiate a lower price and all....

Hmmmm.......

Here are some interesting pics, provided by Micky from Nokiausers:


An indication of the size of the N900, in comparison to the N97:















And heres one I have not seen anywhere else...the included stylus:






The N97 certainly does have more class to it, more stylish shape and feel...but its whats under the hood of the N900 that interests me!
