Is the Nokia N900 Internet Tablet really coming to T-Mobile USA

Summary: I enjoy using the Nokia N810 device from time to time to surf, use some old Palm apps with GarnetVM, and watch movies. I do find it to be a bit laggy at times though so it isn't always with me. MobileCrunch posted some rumored news on the next Nokia Internet Tablet referred to as the N900, Rover, and Maemo Flagship. It is very similar to the Nokia N97, but with a higher resolution display and Maemo OS rather than S60.

I enjoy using the Nokia N810 device from time to time to surf, use some old Palm apps with GarnetVM, and watch movies. I do find it to be a bit laggy at times though so it isn't always with me. MobileCrunch posted some rumored news on the next Nokia Internet Tablet referred to as the N900, Rover, and Maemo Flagship. It is very similar to the Nokia N97, but with a higher resolution display and Maemo OS rather than S60.

Some of the rumored hardware specs are:

  • Maemo 5 OS
  • 3.5 inch 800x480 touchscreen (capacitive or not?)
  • OMAP3430 500/600 MHZ processor
  • 5 megaxpixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics
  • WiFi (it should have Bluetooth as well)
  • HSPA wireless 3.5G capability
  • 32GB internal storage with expandable memory (microSD?)

One other aspect of the rumor that particularly interests me is the possible T-Mobile USA availability in August/September 2009. If this is true then I will definitely be picking one up to run on my T-Mobile account.

    "32GB internal storage with expandable memory (microSD?)"

    what does that mean? does it have 32gb on board and you can put in an
    additional memory card? or no onboard memory and a maximum of a
    32gb card you have to buy in addition?

    • With the Nokia Internet Table since ...

      ... the N770 the design has been storage on board
      [b]plus[/b] a microSD slot, sometimes two slots,
      for additional storage. So it's pretty much
      guaranteed to have the same setup unless Nokia
      decided to have a "Ballmer" moment.

  • Interesting...

    Looks like T-Mobile is quietly moving to blow everyone out of the water in terms of phone offerings.
