Specs and photo of the Nokia N900 Internet Tablet leaked?

Nokiarover Fans of the Nokia line of Internet Tablets have been waiting for a successor to the N810 to appear. The rumored replacement received an unofficial and brief introduction at the Open Source in Mobile Conference last September where it was revealed that the new device would have integrated 3G, a faster Ti OMAP3 processor, and a high definition camera.

It's been a long seven months of relative silence since then, but it looks like our patience may have been rewarded. MobileCrunch, citing information from an inside source at Nokia, has just provided the blogosphere with most of the supposed specs of the next generation Nokia Internet Tablet. Not to be outdone, the folks at CellPassion have produced the first photo of the device and labeled it as the Nokia N900 Rover. According to the leaked information, the N900 will run Maemo 5 and will sport a 3.5-inch 800×480 touchscreen, OMAP3430 500/600MHz processor, 5-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera (with dual-LED flash, autofocus, and sliding cover), 1GB total virtual runtime memory (256MB physical RAM, 768MB virtual memory), WiFi, GPS, HSPA connectivity, and 32GB internal storage expandable up to 48GB via external memory.

The specs include support for quad-band GSM, which with the smaller 3.5-inch screen and lack of a D-pad make the device rather phone-ish. Last December, Nokia executive Ukko Lappalainen stated that the company may consider using Maemo for some of its high-end handsets instead of Android. Perhaps this leak is not about the Internet Tablet after all but about one of those handsets instead. With a potential announcement rumored for June, we may not have to wait much longer to find out what Nokia has planned for this rather interesting device.

  • I’ve owned all the Nokia tablets so far. They have all shown great potential but not quite managed to deliver.

    Now they appear to be getting close with the operating system, and the processor speed, but I think turning it into a phone sized device is a big fail!

    We all have our phone of choice, this needs to be a MID. I want it to compete with the UMID and Viliv. A device in the form of the N810 with a better processor and operating system would have been great…

  • Nokia just want to drop it to the street, let it test the water and debug…….

    I guess the real successor of N810 is come after this.

    They use the same strategy for S60 5th Edition -> first 5800 XM then N97.

    I sure hope that Nokia has a non-phone version with a 4″ or larger screen planned, plus a more traditional keyboard with D-pad. And please, I am willing to sacrifice a few extra millimeters of thickness and grams of weight for a more robust battery.

  • This looked great until I got to the 3.5″ part.

  • Just make it an official maemo phone and be done with it…

  • Think we’ve all been beta testers for this culmination.. The tablets were obviously a inexpensive way for them to mature the o/s and transition symbian.

    They could’ve at least tossed in a 3.8 screen for the former tablet users.. 3.5 is borderline unacceptable =/
