It's been a while since the world has been as excited about a Nokia product as they are about the N900. The fact that it runs on the Maemo 5 OS instead of Nokia's old (lackluster) standby, Symbian, is reason enough alone to be giddy. We know this phone will be hitting the T-Mobile network this October and, if Boy Genius is correct, it'll be hitting the AT&T and Rogers wireless networks in fairly short order.

They have what is (reportedly) an email from a Nokia employee to a customer. In the email, the employee seems to confirm a WCDMA compatible version of the N900. Here's the relevant text;

"Regarding the network bands, you are correct – we announced a WCDMA 900/1700/2100 MHz bands. We have not made any announcements regarding an 850/1900/2100 MHz band device. An announcement will be forthcoming."

'Forthcoming' sounds very imminent in that context. Please keep in mind that the release of 850/1900/2100 MHz band N900s is still totally unconfirmed. This rumor has no independent verification and the email could very well be a fabrication. It's also entirely possible that a customer service employee at Nokia was just talking out of his ass. If this rumor IS valid, we'll see an announcement from Nokia very soon.
