Nokia N900 official, takes multitasking to the next level
Nokia has just announced the successor to its Internet Tablet family, the N900. The device that now features cellular connectivity and phone functionality will be powered by the Maemo 5 platform, which is said to take multitasking to the next level. The manufacturer promises enough processing power, thanks to the ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, that should allow you to have dozens of applications running at the same time. The N900 will also feature a Mozilla-based browser that will take advantage of full Adobe Flash 9.4 support, which should be enough for comfy watching of online videos. Specs wise, the Nokia N900 will come with a 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen, which is smaller compared to the 4.1-inch unit on the N810 Internet Tablet, but will result in more compact dimensions. There is also a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, along with OpenGL ES 2.0 support and a 5MP camera.

The Nokia N900 will be available in select markets from October at an estimated retail price of about $713 (EUR 500) excluding sales taxes and subsidies. Check out the videos below the screenshots!

Resistive screen=NO!. Even though the handset does look pretty nice, I can't think of having a huge screen that is resistive.

WUT? This supports flash? What computer? I think my iPhone is my mobile computer. Damn, hopefully Apple will wake up soon enough to support flash ASAP, or get owned by BB and Nokia once again soon.

After rethinking about Nokia N900 if I haven't actually bought the iPhone this might be my next phone.
