We're not sure how closely we can correlate this to shipments through Nokia's other retail partners and fulfillment of the direct preorders, but for what it's worth, Amazon is now declaring on no uncertain terms that the N97
will be "in stock on June 25." That's just under a month away -- a little later than we'd hoped
, admittedly, placed squarely in the middle of the completely inevitable Palm / Apple fracas that will consume us all. If Nokia's history is any indication, it's entirely plausible to believe that these things will be in stock at the company's flagship stores in Chicago and New York by a few days before Amazon ships, but not for $603.99, that's for sure.
