Hey, Nokia — you’ve got a drip. Actually, it looks more like a leak, and from it, some press pics of the unannounced N900 have sprung out, courtesy of French site Be Geek.
Though an early review has already been done on the N900 (aka RX-51), the phone itself isn’t expected to be made official until Nokia World, which starts September 2. The Nokia Blog summed up the comprehensive assessment of Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin thusly:
- Side-slider form factor similar to the Nokia N810
- 5MP camera with lens cover similar to Nokia N97
- 1320mAh battery
- 32GB internal memory + microSDHC slot for extra storage
- Responsive 800×480 pixel resistive screen
- For simplicity sake, it runs the next version of Maemo and it differs dramatically from the Nokia N810
- Variety of visual effects, smooth transitions and decent reaction time of the touch screen which is a significant improvement over the Nokia N97
- Browser is pretty stable, and it supports flash, video and applets
- Phone’s GPS department seemed well-tuned
- Context menus are made in the form of pop-ups which are easy to dismiss. All you need to do is press on any area of the screen outside the menu and it’ll be closed in an instant
- True mobile powerhouse… that comes wrapped in a very eye-candy and functional UI at that
- Available late in 2009 for 550 Euro (subject to change).
Good job, fellas. For anyone who wants to check out the longer, full version, click here to go directly there.
