Here at the Mobiles.co.uk Blog, from time to time, we get things wrong. We’ll put our hands up and admit it. So, last week when we told you that the Nokia N900 was delayed until January, we were a little wide of the mark. But before you sob into your S60 device expecting to wait till February for Nokia’s next flagship device, listen up because we’ve got some news that could save Christmas. That’s right, the Nokia N900 is launching this side of Christmas and better yet, you can reserve yours now at Mobiles.co.uk!
The N900 is Nokia’s first mainstream Maemo offering having formerly reserved the Linux based OS for its internet tablet devices (which lacked sim card slots). For those unfamiliar with Maemo (and that will probably be quite a few of you), the operating system promises to put a desktop user experience in the palm of your hand. Set up multiple home screens and populate them with numerous apps, shortcuts and live web feeds, run multiple applications and manage them through one easy to access dashboard that gives you an overview of everything that’s running and browse the web just as you would on you laptop thanks to full flash support. Navigating the many features of Maemo is a breeze thanks to the excellent 3.5 inch touchscreen display which is ultra responsive reacting to gentle sweeps across the screen rather than forceful prods. For messaging purists, there’s also a slide out QWERTY keyboard to compliment the on screen variant letting you decide how you want to email, text and instant message your friends.
Away from the operating system, the phone itself packs a punch thanks to an ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz processor (as found in the iPhone 3GS) and up to 1GB of application memory making for a slick and smooth user experience. Combine this with 32GB of internal memory and a memory card slot supporting up to 16GB memory cards (for a potential 48GB of memory!) and it becomes clear Nokia aren’t holding back with the N900. Throw in a 5.0 Megapixel camera, HSDPA and Wi-Fi and a GPS receiver and you’ve got all the makings of a world beater.
But, chances are if you’re reading this you already know a fair bit about the N900. The real news here is that the N900 is now available to pre-order at Mobiles.co.uk! With limited stock expected on the 21st of December, reserve yours now to be one of the lucky few to get your hands on an N900 this Christmas!
