Nokia N900 Rover Internet Tablet with Maemo 5 coming soon?
The unannounced (and, hence, unconfirmed) internet tablet should be the rightful successor of the Nokia N810. Unlike the N810, though, the N900 / Rover will apparently have phone capabilities, thus being somewhat like the N97, but without Symbian S60 on-board.
According to MobileCrunch, Nokia N900 will be available starting this summer.
The first carrier to offer it, sometime in July, should be T-Mobile – although T-Mobile USA will only get it in August or September.
Also in July, the N900 should become available in Asia and the Middle East, while October 2009 should see the device in most of Europe’s markets.
The price of Nokia N900 is obviously not known for the moment, but we do have an image showing the new tablet (found via CellPassion):
Sure, the image isn’t too big, and neither too clear, but at least we have a clue on what to expect.
Specs-wise, the Nokia N900 Rover should bring the following:
- 3.5 inch touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels
- Quad band GSM connectivity (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz)
- Tri band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity (900 / 1700 / 2100 MHz)
- Firefox 3 with support for Flash 9.4
- VoIP support
- 5MP autofocus camera with sliding cover and dual-LED flash
- OMAP 3430 CPU at 500 or 600 MHz
- 1GB of virtual runtime memory
- 32GB of storage space, expandable with MicroSDHC cards of up to 16GB
- 1320 mAh battery
- 111 x 59.7 x 18.2 mm
- 180 grams
Almost a perfect set of specs – although I can’t help noticing that a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU (or something alike) would have made it all even more attractive.
Sadly, Nokia said nothing about the N900 Rover for now, so until the company officially unveils it, all the above info should be treated as “uncertain”.
