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.

Well, according to Reuters, one of these phones will be a high-end one that runs on Maemo (like the N900).

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.

Nokia-Maemo

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.

    Reuters' article is way vague; it's impossible to say if Reuters is saying that another unknown phone will be launched or if it's talking about the N900.

    agree with cesar. N900 is the high-end Maemo phone. N900 is not a MID. It is similar size as N97.

    This article is retarded. The N900 is the phone. The Reuters article is vague like the other commenters said. You should delete this article – it's a waste of time and reflects how lame your “reporting” is. The N900 is obviously the Maemo phone. It has a SIM card in it. Nokia doesn't even call their own devices “phones” – they call them computers. Fold up your shop and go home, Unwired View. #FAIL
