Best device EVAR!!!!!!! (well to me at least.. lol) Nokia has just announced their new powerhouse device, the Nokia N900. It’s a mobile computer(with phone functionality) that is powered by Maemo5 Operating system. Maemo5 is the evolution of the OS in Nokia’s internet tablets like N800 and N810.
The N900 spots a horizontal slider that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard (like the N97), a 3.5inch WVGA screen (800×480) resistive touch screen, ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor with 1GB of application memory (256 MB RAM, 768 MB virtual memory), OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration, 5megapixel Carl Zeiss optics camera, Wifi, aGPS, 3.5mm headphone jack (TV Out too), 32gb of internal memory and supports microSD card expansion.
One thing I really really like about the N900 is the browser. It’s the new Fennec browser powered by Mozilla technology, supports Adobe Flash 9.4 and AJAX. Other features are like customisable ‘panorama’ desktop and multi-window task switcher. Users can now create multiple homescreens for everything! Probably one for music, one for widgets, one for favourite contacts etc. Task switcher allows user to view all open apps in a glace to see everything running in them Live.
# Unified communications and address book: voice calls, internet calls, instant messages and SMS. Includes the ability to merge phonebook, Skype contacts and other contacts into a single address book.
# Ability to share status, location with friends, keep multiple IM and SMS converstions going and move between them.
