Nokia N900 starts shipping

Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

The Nokia N900 has started shipping to destinations across the globe in preparation for its 16th November release, and this creepy teaser-video shows just how exciting a piece of kit it is set to be.

The Nokia N900 is shaping up to be an incredibly powerful handset. Boasting a powerful ARM Cortex-A8 processor and up to 1GB of application memory, the N900 will have all the multi-tasking functionality of a low-spec desktop PC. Its Maemo 5 operating system and an 800 x 480 touch screen, will be excellent for browsing, and already a whole range of apps have been lined up for the handset.

José-Luis Martinez, Vice President for Nokia’s N-series said “The Nokia N900 has generated a lot of interest since its public launch in August, which has been reflected in the device pre-orders. What’s exciting is the Maemo software, which takes its cues from the desktop computer and offers a full browsing experience like no other handset.”

The Nokia N900 is available to pre-order here, priced £499.00.
