Moments after launching their first netbook, Nokia has their rumoured Nokia flagship out - the N900 is indeed a PC-like internet super-phone running on the Linux-based Maemo 5 operating system.
A powerful ARM Cortex-A8 processor, OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration and 1GB of application memory means lots of multitasking, with many apps running simultaneously. The browser is a Mozilla based one with desktop-like powers, including Flash for websites that render just the way they would on the bigger screen.
Like the internet behemoth N97, a slide-out QWERTY as well as full WVGA touch-screen makes for mighty pleasant texting and emailing, and the N900 will also come with the top notch Nokia Messaging, which supports up to ten personal email accounts which you'll be able to get push notifications on. Text messages or IM exchanges are shown in one view and all conversations are organized as separate windows.
32GB of on-board storage can be beefed up to 48GB via the microSD card slot, while the camera rocks a five-meg Carl Zeiss lens. Available from October at around EUR500.
