News of the GSM Palm Pre releasing in October broke out today and I’m wondering if this affects your buying decision for the Nokia N900? The Palm Pre w/ SIM slot will support UMTS/HSDPA Bands 850/1900/2100, meaning European and US 3G on AT&T. No announcements for a Nokia N900 variant supporting AT&T 3G has been made yet.
There’s a catch if you decide to get the Palm Pre over the Nokia N900. According to PreCentral, you might still need to unlock the Pre for use outside O2 or even get a QWERTZ keyboard. Here’s a quick rundown of the specs found on the Pre:
- 3.1-inch touch screen
- 320×480 resolution
- QWERTY keyboard
- 3 megapixel camera w/ LED flash
- Built-in GPS
- 8GB of user storage
- 3.5mm stereo
How does this new information affect your buying decision for the Nokia N900?
