Nokia has confirmed the availability of its latest Internet table , the Maemo 5 laden N900 in the US market. The launch comes after almost a months delay and amidst rumors of revised launch dates for the device.
The first Nokia device based on its latest Maemo 5 platform, the N900 is the company’s flagship smartphone. Although it is positioned as an Internet Tablet, most people seem to have replaced the N97 with the N900 as the company’s flagship smartphone.
In the US, the unlocked N900 will cost $649 and will be initially available via Nokia Flagship stores in New York and Chicago, as well as online and through independent retailers. As of now, Nokia hasn’t clarified if it is in tie up with any US based carrier to offer the N900 at a subsidized price.
If you’re still wondering what the fuss is all about? Let us remind you that the N900 boats of some nice features that makes it one of the hottest Nokia products to have ever been conceptualized and eventually manufactured. It features a 800 x 480 pixels touchscreen display,offers GSM and HSDPA connectivity, has a full QWERTY keyboard and loads of storage space – thanks to the 32GB internal memory. The N900 uses the Linux based Maemo5 OS, which seems to have a fan following already. Apart from all these, there are the usual plethora of features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a very usable 5 megapixel camera
All this does make the N900 the Nokia device to own, at least for now.
