Do you live in Canada? Are you waiting for the arrival of Nokia N97? Well guess what, your waiting days are overas the Canadian carrier, Bell will be launching N97 on 10th December. Unfortunately, you no longer have an excuse if you promised to gift someone this very cool device from Nokia.
The Nokia N900 is now official, well in image form at least. The first image of the new Nokia N900 tablet has emerged online and it looks awesome. This is an official shot showing the 3.5-inch tablet in all its glory.
The Nokia N900 has turned up in the form of an official, albeit ‘leaked’, image. If Yesterday’s announcement of the Nokia Booklet 3G wasn’t enough news for the week BEFORE Nokia World 2009, well this image confirms that Nokia has more good stuff coming out in the remainder of this year than every other company can put together.
Specs of the Nokia N900 include:
- 3.5-inch touchscreen
- 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics
- Maemo OS
- 32GB internal storage
- HSDPA connectivity
There is little extra in the way of hard facts to accompany the image, other than it confirms the presence of a strikingly similar look to the Nokia N97 flagship S60 5th Edition device. You will noticed that the front camera and other sensors have been grouped together on the Nokia N900 tablet.
The image shows a nice clean interface very much keeping in sync with the images from the Mobile Review preview of the Nokia N900. The use of Maemo 5 instead of Symbian S60 looks like it could well be paving the way for the platform’s use in future Nokia handsets.
N900′s shelf price is set at about €550, but this, along with carrier details is yet to be confirmed.
