High-end Nokia Maemo phone to be announced at Nokia World?
We all know that Nokia will showcase the Booklet 3G (and probably the N900 too) next week, during Nokia World 2009. But these aren’t phones – Booklet 3G is a netbook, while N900 is an Internet Tablet with phone capabilities.
And Nokia surely has some new phones that are waiting to be announced.
The Maemo handset should be Nokia’s answer to Apple’s iPhone – I thought the N97 has this role, but the N97 failed to attract as many customers as Nokia would’ve wished.
Since Maemo is “far more flexible than Symbian”, it’s clear why Nokia wants its high-end products to run on it, and not on Symbian – which will be kept for mid to low-end smartphones, like the recently-announced Nokia 5230.
Unfortunately, at the moment there are not clear details about the upcoming Nokia Maemo phone, so we’ll have to wait for next week to see what it brings.
