It's looking like the launch of the Nokia N900 has been delayed, with two online retailers pushing back their estimated release dates to the end of October. Amazon UK is now suggesting that the N900 will arrive come October 26th, rather than at the beginning of the month as was previously expected.
Meanwhile Nokia.de, the company's German site, is not expecting stock of the N900 until October 30th. Amazon US recently stopped accepting pre-orders for the smartphone, but has recently begun to take them again; however there's no sign of a release date estimate on their product page.
The N900 is the first Nokia device to run Maemo 5, and has a large resistive touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth. There's also a 5-megapixel camera and VoIP support. In terms of size, it falls in-between the company's smartphone and Internet Tablet range.
