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!
