Nokia N900 Now Shipping

Nokia N900 Maemo phone

Only a few days to go and we will see for ourselves Nokia’s first Maemo-based smartphone as the N900 is being shipped to Europe, Middle East, Russia, and North America.  Set to compete against Apple’s iPhone and BlackBerry by RIM, the Nokia N900 is both a mobile phone and a mobile Internet device.  It runs on Maemo 5 Linux OS and the first Nokia phone powered by TI OMAP3 microprocessor with ARM Cortex-A8 Core.  Apart from its touch screen display, the Nokia N900 also featues a 5-megapixel camera, portable media player, as well as e-mail and web browsing capabilities.  Compared to other contemporary handsets, the N900 has a more "touch-friendly" interface and a customizable home screen that mixes application icons with shortcuts and widgets.

However, users in United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, and Austria are warned that the Nokia N900 will not be compatible with Hutchinson 3G SIM cards until a software update becomes available later in the year.

In the meantime, let’s see whether the N900 will save Nokia from declining market share.
