Spotted on the store shelves of InfoMax in MegaMall is a box of a brand new Nokia N900 phone. Though the rumored launch date of the N900 in the Philippines is still in March, the store had 1 of the 2 units sold already since late December.
The price of the remaining unit is a staggering Php48,000 and the store clerk says it does not come with any microSD card so you’ll have to shell a couple thousand pesos more for that.
Specs of the Nokia N900:
3.5″ display (800Ã—480 pixels) with resistive touchscreen
1GB of app memory (256 MB RAM, 768 MB virtual memory)
32 GB storage
up to 16GB via microSD

The Php48,000 is not official but you get to own Nokia’s latest Maemo-powered smartphone. The speculated retail price of the phone is somewhere in the Php39,500 when it’s officially launched in the Philippines.
