All the recent leaks and live photos certainly take the air out of Nokia’s N900 announcement today, but nonetheless, the Maemo 5 slider that has disappointed those who were hoping for a “real” N810 successor is now officially official.
There aren’t any surprises hidden in the press release, so the device that “has evolved from Nokia’s previous generation of Internet Tablets” does indeed pack an ARM Cortex A8 CPU and 1GB of application memory inside its sliding QWERTY housing, which of course features the same 3.5-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen that many of us were hoping would be bigger. Other highlights we already knew about include the 32GB of internal storage, microSD slot (up to 16GB cards supported), and 5-megapixel camera.
The N900 is expected to be released “in select markets” in October for €500 (€50 cheaper than previously reported), excluding carrier subsidies.
