Move over S60, here’s Maemo

September 3rd, 2009

While Maemo has been around for a few years it’s the first time Nokia’s stuck it in a Smartphone.

I use a Mameo powered n810 Internet Tablet from time to time and it’s a very nice device so I’m pretty excited to see that Nokia will be using Maemo in their new n900 phone.

While I like S60 on non Touch devices I’m not so crazy about it on their touch screen ones.

The n900 will have a 800×480 display (like the n810), a pull out keyboard, 32GB of storage with a SDHC card slot, HSDPA 900/1700/2100 with support for up to 10.2mbps down, 5 megapixel camera with the ability to recover 8000×480 video. t’s dimensions are: 110.9 x 59.8 x 18.

It will be powered by a 600Mhz Coretex processor plus a 3D chip (same chip combo as found in the Palm Pre though the Pre’s runs at 500Mhz). To compare the Nokia N97 has a 434Mhz ARM 11 processor.
