Nokia N900 Internet Tablet

| Also, the N900 runs on Nokiaâs Linux-based 
| Maemo platform - their replacement for 
| Symbian on their high-end devices. Maemo 
| offers great customization options and 
| multitasking abilities. But its far from 
| perfect. There are issues on its user 
| interface, and its app store that still 
| hasnât gone online wonât attract anyone 
| right away.


Nokia N900 First Impressions Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Immediately, I can feel and see that the 
| Nokia N900 is a descendant of the N800 and 
| N810, and at the same time it shares so 
| much with the N97 that you can really tell 
| that this new model represent a passing of 
| the torch for Nokia. It will be interesting 
| to see how Maemo 5 evolves from here -- but 
| so far, I like what I see, generally 
| speaking.
| At this point, all things being equal with 
| carrier support and productivity needs, it 
| would be very hard not to choose the N900 
| over the N97. It's a good device, and 
| definitely one for those who like to be on 
| the bleeding edge of mobile technology.


N900 Video Feast: Multi-tasking, Gaming, Battery, and Communication 


Official: Vodafone first to stock Nokia N900

| For those who have been under an iPhone-
| shaped rock for the past few months, the 
| Nokia N900 is an uber-powerful handset 
| which uses the Maemo 5 operating system, 
| based on Linux. This means it won't melt 
| when you want to do multi-tasking.
| Also on board is a high-res screen, 3.5-
| inch screen and although it's resistive we 
| have tried it and it works like a dream.
| Couple this with the fact that it will be 
| among the first devices to have Firefox 
| mobile and what you have is a device that 
| looks ready to take on the Google and 
| Apple's of this world.
| The Nokia N900 is officially coming soon on 
| the Vodafone website, with a release date 
| of January.

| Some may find the size a concern, but it's
| mainly a consequence of accommodating
| slide-out keyboard. In use, the keyboard,
| despite its compact layout, works very well
| and the camera is head and shoulders above
| what you'll find on the iPhone. Overall,
| the Nokia N900 is a joy to use and full of
| good things that we liked very much, though
| it still feels like something of a work in
| progress. The Maemo 5 OS is very promising
| on this evidence â fast and useable, once
| we'd got our heads around the basic set-up,
| and bound to be much more versatile in a
| few months' time as more apps and features
| are added.
