This Rover will fetch the internet for you
This article has been updated on August 10, 2009.

You may not be able to teach this Rover how to lie down and play dead, but the Nokia Rover (aka N-900 or the RX-51) did sit for some pictures. Equipped with a 3.5 inch resistive touchscreen with 400 x 800 pixel resolution. Internal memory is 32GB out of the box, and the device sports a 5MP Carl Zeiss camera with dual LED flash, AF and a sliding lens cover. Oh, and did we mention it will be powered by the Maemo OS? Rounding out the specs, Rover has a physical QWERTY keyboard and a ARM Cortex A8 processor with speeds of 600MHz up to 1GHz (similar to iPhone3GS and Palm Pre). This is expected to be the first in a line of Maemo powered devices for the Finnish manufacturer. No launch date or pricing info has been released yet. Rover, go fetch us our newspaper and slippers.

*Update*:
As of now, it is not certain if this would be a handset or rather an Internet tablet device. We are looking forward to more details on the matter.
