Nokia N900
N900 promises PC like multitasking capability

Nokia is looking for every edge it can sharpen in its fight with Apple and RIM for the high-end smartphone market. Smartphones are growing in popularity and Nokia is seeing its market share drop faster than average rates in the industry.

DailyTech reported yesterday that Nokia would be unveiling a new high-end smartphone at Nokia World that ran Maemo. Today Nokia has made the Linux-derived Maemo device a reality with the official announcement.

The new Nokia N900 packs an ARM Coretex-A8 CPU in with up to 1GB of application memory and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration. According to Nokia, the result of the powerful processor and the Maemo OS is that users of the N900 get a PC-like multitasking experience. Nokia says the power of the N900 allows many applications to run simultaneously.

The N900 features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and supports up to ten personal email addresses. The device is designed for easy texting and email and sports 32GB of onboard storage. Memory expansion is offered with up to 16GB via a microSD card. The device sports a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics.

"With Linux software, Mozilla-based browser technology and now also with cellular connectivity, the Nokia N900 delivers a powerful mobile experience," says Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President, Markets, Nokia. "The Nokia N900 shows where we are going with Maemo and we'll continue to work with the community to push the software forward. What we have with Maemo is something that is fusing the power of the computer, the internet and the mobile phone, and it is great to see that it is evolving in exciting ways."

Nokia says its N900 supports Adobe Flash 9.4, something lacking from the iPhone. Other features of the handset include a high-resolution WVGA touch screen, HSPA internet connectivity and integrated Wi-Fi. The handset runs the Mozilla web browser. Nokia expects to launch the N900 in October for select markets at a price of 500 EUR.





"Game reviewers fought each other to write the most glowing coverage possible for the powerhouse Sony, MS systems. Reviewers flipped coins to see who would review the Nintendo Wii. The losers got stuck with the job." -- Andy Marken
