Maemo MIDs for "high-end mobile computing segment" in the works


I don't think there was really ever any doubt that Maemo 5 (and beyond) would be used on more than just the Nokia N900, but it's still nice to hear from Nokia Nseries VP Jonas Geust that the company's future plans include launching additional Maemo-based MIDs for the high-end market while continuing to release Symbian units for the mass market.

It isn't clear whether all of these upcoming MIDs will feature cellular phone functions, but with Maemo being about the "internet first" and providing a "true computer experience in small package," it seems reasonable to assume that a non-phone version of the N900 with a larger screen may not be just a pipe dream. And I know I'm not alone is saying that I would buy something like that in a heartbeat.

Wouldn't you?
