Compared to the N97, the most recent Nokia N-series phone we tested, the N900 doesn’t look so particularly special. But under the hood, Nokia’s latest tablet-phone device represents a momentous change. The N900 combines Nokia’s high-quality hardware with a unique software platform, the Linux-based operating system Maemo 5. Maemo takes advantage of the device’s touch screen and creates some pretty slick, albeit simplistic, navigation.
Here are the N900’s specifications:
|Dimensions (in.)||4.37 x 2.35 x .77|
|Screen Resolution (PX)||800 x 480|
|Operating System||Maemo 5|
|Screen ||3.5" Resistive|
|Processor||ARM Cortex-A8 600MHz|
|Internal Memory||32 GB|
|Data Transfer Speed||3.5 G|
|Service Provider||Unlocked (GSM)|
The N900 isn’t your typical phone, but that’s both a strength and a weakness of this handset. Read on for our evaluation of the phone’s performance and unique features, and our discussion about whether or not this phone deserves a spot in your pocket.
