Hey guys,

This is an extremely sad moment for me, but I have to sell my Nokia N900, running short of cash and this was one of my more extravagant recent purchases. This phone is in perfect condition and runs Maemo Linux, a debian based distro made by Nokia, with a great community (www.maemo.org) and loads of applications available in debian style repositories, including many of the apps you're used to using on Ubuntu! It runs an 600 MHz ARM Processor, has 32GB memory, and has a touchscreen as well as a full physical qwerty keyboard. Nokia actually describes this as a mobile computer with phone capabilities. I love it because it harnesses the power of Linux desktop on the mobile platform. Wish I didn't have to sell it but necessity calls. I am UK based, but can will post to most placesI will be putting it on ebay in about a week, but if anyone wants to buy it before then just message me here, I am looking for about 300 for the phone (retails at 499 here in UK),

Cheers!

Matt

EDIT: Now looking for 260 pounds, leather case included.

I'm in Australia and have already got an n900 :)
I don't want another one though, I've got enough phones as it is.

They are a good little unit, I've got a debian chroot environment on mine in addition to Maemo, so I can actually run and install debian apps on it. It even has an LXDE desktop if I wish to load it up :)

Anyway, so if there's people out there here that are considering getting one, I would recommend it.

Heh, now I sound like an eeky mobile phone salesman.

I can't afford it, but I wish you success with your financial predicament.

Matthew,

I am from London, UK. I would give you 120 on it, CASH (or PayPal, fees on me, whichever you prefer) - if you like to make a deal please PM me, I know I don't offer the same price you asked for but if you want 120 cash on it then I'll pay you straight away.

Thanks!!

It's a shame you have to sell it. It's an excellent bit of kit.

You could try the Maemo forums: http://talk.maemo.org/forumdisplay.php?f=7

Or Ebay.
