Following weeks of rumours, Nokia has confirmed its producing a handheld Maemo-powered device called the Nokia N900. It’s the successor to the N800 and N810, offering the Linux-based Maemo 5 operating system via a touch screen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
It’s equipped with 32GB of storage and a 5 megapixel camera plus “cellular features”, although we probably won’t know much more until Nokia World next week. Pricing is expected to be around 500 Euro (which these days is just over £500 by the time you’ve added VAT). [Press release]
