Nokia World 2009 is just a little over a week away, but it seems that the mobile phone giant can't wait that long and has decided to make the N900 official already.
As expected, the Nokia N900 will come with a 3.5-inch 800×480 WVGA touchscreen, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual-LED flash, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, quad-band GSM/EDGE, WCDMA 900/1700/2100MHz, QWERTY keypad, 32GB internal memory expandable via microSD card, and an ARM cortex A8 600MHz processor running at the helm with Mameo 5 as its operating system. In addition to that, we now know that it will also feature an FM transmitter, TV-out, A-GPS/GPS, up to 1GB application memory, OpenGL ES 2.0 support, and a Mozilla based browser with full Adobe Flash 9.4 support as well. With specs like these, it’s hard to find a reason not to be happy with the N900, but if we really had point out a flaw, it would probably have be its BL-5J 1320mAh battery which we’re curious to see if it can handle all the juice this baby is packing in. Aside from that, everything appears to be exceptional.
If that's not enough, here are a couple of videos to further get you excited for the Nokia N900.
Like their new Nokia Money service, the Nokia N900 will also be showcased at Nokia World next month. It's scheduled to hit store shelves in select markets beginning in October, and from the looks of it, T-Mobile will definitely be its carrier in the US. So, how much will this new Nokia phone cost? It’s undeniably pricey at €500 (roughly $714) pre-tax and pre-subsidy, but with its boat-load of features, we weren't really expecting this to be cheap.
