The unlocked Nokia N900 typically retails for $600, but drops to $479 with coupon code "8Q3R8HBT5HNWMD" at Dell.com (for a savings of $121). Though it's a bit larger than most smartphones and may be trickier to navigate, we recommend the N900 for anyone whose primary need is a quick and powerful browsing experience.
Featuring a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a slide-out keyboard, it supports a wide variety of music and video formats. With 32GB of storage space, this smartphone should take care of all your multimedia needs except MMS photo and video messaging, which (oddly) it does not support.
The N900 also includes a PDF reader, Nokia maps, optional photo editing software, and an outstanding 5-megapixel camera. Alas, Nokia's Ovi apps store comes nowhere near Apple's and likely never will.
