Nokia’s latest offering stands out in the smartphone market for all the right reasons: Linux-based Maemo OS, PC-like performance and extensive customisation options. OK, so it’s got pretty decent guts, but what about the rest?
Pretty decent there too. It’s got a sleek, compact design that’s as practical as it is pretty, with a side-sliding, full QWERTY keyboard, removable battery and a sharp, transreflective LCD display that’s easy to see in sunlight or no light. It also comes with a stylus, so if typing accurately with your thumbs is just not your thing, this 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen is made for you.
Nokia also renews its focus on multimedia with two cameras on the Nokia N900. A VGA web camera on the front, and on the back, a 5MP Carl Zeiss camera with dual LED flash that also records DVD-quality, widescreen video. All your videos and photos can be contextualised with geotags, and, of course, you can upload them straight onto the web.
You can find all the details, including the full spec list, at Nokia’s website.
