Specs of the new Nokia N900 include:
With the unsubsidized price of approximately EUR500 (US$712) it is going to be a pricy device so I will have to get rid of something to help pay for it. The N97 was announced last year at Nokia World and released a few months ago to the disappointment of most. I have tried getting by with the N97, but the anemic amount of included RAM frustrates me to no end as the browser cache builds and apps get closed in the background. The N900 has a similar form factor with a 3 row QWERTY keyboard, but with a higher res display and much better internal components.
With Linux software, Mozilla-based browser technology and now also with cellular connectivity, the Nokia N900 delivers a powerful mobile experience," says Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President, Markets, Nokia. "The Nokia N900 shows where we are going with Maemo and we'll continue to work with the community to push the software forward. What we have with Maemo is something that is fusing the power of the computer, the internet and the mobile phone, and it is great to see that it is evolving in exciting ways.
The N97 now appears to be more phone/messaging focused while the N900 is more data/media focused and since I am a data hound and make few calls the N900 is the simple choice.
Are any of you excited about the N97? Will this come to T-Mobile USA to compete with the iPhone, BlackBerry Storm, and Palm Pre? I think it could fit in with the myTouch 3G running Android becuase the N900 has the keyboard while the myTouch 3G is focused on the touch experience and the consumer.
