maemo

As tipped, the Nokia Maemo has been announced alongside the new Nokia N900 smartphone, where this Linux-based software is able to offer a computing experience similar to that of a PC on a device that is no larger than your average smartphone. The N900 will be the next generation of Internet tablets, where it will be powered by the new Maemo 5 software that allows one to have dozens of application windows open while running simultaneously without suffering from any slowdown at all in performance. Features include an ARM Cortex-A8 processor, up to 1GB application memory, 32GB of internal memory, a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration, a WVGA touchscreen display, a QWERTY keyboard and Wi-Fi connectivity. Expect the Nokia N900 to retail for 500 Euros before taxes and subsidies, where it will arrive in selected markets from October this year onwards. [Press Release]
