Fresh on the heel of Nokia N97mini, Nokia has now announced the Nokia N900. Itís just the thing totally different: the perfect mix of internet tablet and smartphone that replacing the N810 Internet Tablet. The major weapon of the device is: Maemo 5 OS, the latest version of the Linux-based operating system. Moreover, the N900 sports QWERTY keyboard, 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 32GB built-in memory, would all this be enough for you? Read on and you may find out.

Whatís inside the box? Beside the phone, you get a battery, High Efficiency Charger, a stereo headset, Video out cable, Nokia charger adaptor, a cleaning cloth, CD and userís guide.

The N900 packs a 3.5í resistive touchscreen of WVGA resolution (800 x 480). There are no buttons on the front. It just tip you off the N900 is an internet tablet.

The QWERTY keyboard is the only hardware of N900. They are arranged in three rows (4 in the N810) which are pretty nice to press on.

Turn to the bottom, you will find the speaker next to the lock slider, the3.5mm audio jack, the mouthpiece and the stylus compartment.

On the right you get the volume rocker, the power key and the camera button. The infrared port is also here.

The other speaker is at the top of the phone along with the microUSB port and the lanyard eyelet.

There's also a kickstand here, which allow setting the phone on a flat surface at an angle suitable for watching video.

Turn to the back of the phone, it hosts the 5 MP camera and the dual LED flash which are hidden under a small protective cover.

The main menu has two-tier structure which sit in a scrollable list under the "MoreÖ" icon. And every app you would install after that also goes there.

The music player of N900, just like its gallery covers all the basics but that's basically all it does. If you just want to listen to music you'll be fine with it. But the features such as track recognition or automatically generated playlists are not appeared here.

The Operating system of N900 is runs on Maemo 5 software on Linux. The homescreen consists of 4 separate pages just like the Android-powered devices. And it is multitasking. You can just press the button in the upper left corner reveals all applications that you are recently running in the background.

Also, Maemo 5 brings along significant improvements in the phone contacts as compared to previous OS editions: the built-in support for Skype, Google Talk, Ovi, Jabber and SIP. You just need to enter your username and password for the corresponding service and the N900 will connect automatically, adding your online buddies to your phone contacts. And till now, you may ask that how to make a phone call with it. The dialing screen is opened via the phone icon at the main menu. If you decide to give someone a ring and once the virtual keyboard has popped up on screen, you will be able to choose whether to use VoIP service or make the call over the cellular network. And one more thing that N900 excels in is its own Maemo browser which powered by Mozilla based on the same technology as Mozilla Firefox and sports full Adobe Flash 9.4 supports. Web pages can be visualized just like the one on normal computer screen. It seems like an internet beast more than a phone.
