Nokia gives N900 official launch in Taiwan, teases with info on upcoming Symbian 3 and MeeGo devices
While you might have had your hands on the Maemo-based Nokia N900 for quite some time now, it was only recently launched in Taiwan and will be made available in several other places fairly soon. On May 10, Nokia launched the Nokia N900 in the Taiwanese market and has priced it at NT$22,100 or about US$697.
As you may already know, the Nokia N900 is one of Nokia’s latest high-end smartphones, and it runs Maemo instead of Symbian, while offering most of the niceties people have come to expect from a product made by the Finnish giant. These include a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, built-in full QWERTY keyboard and 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen LCD screen.
Not a lot of details related to this launch were made available, although upon reporting about it, DigiTimes mentions that Nokia is going to unveil high-end devices based on Symbian 3 and MeeGo in the second half of 2010. This is according to industry sources they are referencing, which have mostly been correct about market forecasts in the past.
