New video of Nokia N900 browser

N900 At the expense of appearing to be a total Nokia N900 fanboy, which I readily admit to, here is yet another post to hold us over until the release of Nokia’s latest flagship device. Leading up to the Maemo Summit this weekend, the folks over at Nokia Conversations have posted a new video of the Maemo browser being put through its paces. The YouTube video, which is just under six minutes long and can be found past the break, shows off the browser in real-life use and yet again proves that the N900 is going to be a force in the smartphone market.

What really has me excited is the implementation of Flash, which looks very impressive in the video. Also of note is the innovative “spiral” motion to zoom in and out of web pages, which differs from the “pinch and stretch” motion that is favored by most other multi-touch smartphones like the Palm Pre and Apple iPhone.

I hope Nokia is getting closer to releasing this phone here in the U.S. so I can stop checking the Amazon preorder status everyday.

    If only it weren’t on T-Mobile’s frequency.

    That Flash demo is impressive, which I’m assuming is using the new 10.1 version that is currently in development. Hopefully the shipping version of Flash will be usable in the meantime.

    Flash 10.1 will come in Q1 of 2010, but the N900 will ship with 9.4 so basically most flash based web sites should work fine.

    I can’t wait to see some reviews of this when it’s released. When it gets proper Office support (and MMS) I might have to retire my E90.

    Off-topic: Why do I keep getting a message that the time to edit this topic has expired? It’s happened twice to me today.

    I’m trying not to get excited about this since it won’t support 3G on AT&T.

    This is worth ditching ATT for Tmobile. This phone looks awsome.

    I’m willing to fall back to EDGE data using my iPhone SIM in the N900…at least it has WiFi to make up for it.
