Nokia N900 launch delayed

Popular handset is oversubscribed

Nokia says that massive demand for the Nokia N900 has forced it to delay the release of the Maemo 5 handset.

Users will have to wait a week longer than expected for their Linux-based internet phones.

According to Nokia website Nok Nok: "Working on a strict first-come-first-served basis, anyone who has already pre-ordered the Nokia N900 should receive their device starting from [yesterday]."
