Today Nokia announced its latest internet tablet, the N900. Similar to its predecessors, the N900 is a handheld computing device that has a 3.5-inch high-resolution 800x480 WVGA touch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to ease messaging tasks. Unlike its predecessors, the N900 has quad-band GSM/EDGE and 900/1700/2100MHz WCDMA/HSPA cellular radios on board. It also has Wi-Fi, GPS/aGPS, an FM transmitter and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP. The N900 has 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics with dual LED flash and video capture. Other specs include 1GB of application memory and 32GB of built-in storage with support for 48GB. The N900 runs the latest version of Nokia's mobile Linux platform, Maemo 5. With the large amount of available memory, the N900 can run multiple applications at once, and it has a dashboard that allows for easy switching between applications. The home screen is completely user customizable with widgets and applications. The N900 comes with a Mozilla-based browser and full Adobe Flash 9.4 support for a richer browsing experience. It will be able to update its system softeware directly over the internet. The N900 will be available in select markets starting in October for about $710.
