We had blogged about Nokia might be launching N900 formerly known as Rover, during its Nokia world event. Yesterday, Nokia officially announced Nokia N900. And boy it looks promising. Not only the newly designed Linux based Operating system Maemo but also the hardware specifications and Price tag is a huge turn ON for us.
Take a look at the videos(bottom of the post) and I am sure Nokia will take you to surprise how awesome its operating system looks. I must say even better than iPhone. For once Nokia might be able to beat up its competitors Apple, Android based phones and more. With the already depreciating market for Nokia, N900 is a new ray of hope.
Though, initially marketed as a tablet the feature to insert sim card makes it a complete Phone with the hardware we have always been looking for.
Fonearena, even went a bit cheesy and compared Nokia N900 and iPhone in their post, and Nokia N900 clearly turns out to be a winner.
