Nokia N900 | Review, Features, Pics, Price & Tech Specs
Only recently Nokia finally unveiled the brand new Maemo powered Nokia N900 Mobile Computer and Internet Tablet and this device taken the world of mobile computer devices and smartphones/cell phones by a storm. In the time period when potential customers are already in awe with all the jam-packed features and beauty of the recently launched Nokia N97 Symbian Smartphone device, the Nokia N900 have knocked everyone out off their feet (literally!).
Let me honestly tell you my cut on this device:
After reading through all the technical details and looking at the Nokia N900 videos, many N900 images and reading through other posts for hours after hours, I am simply stunned! I really feel astonished and I am totally convinced that Nokia N900 is “The Beast” that will change the cell phones and smartphones trend completely! This beast of an internet tablet which is nicely dressed to appear as an expensive smartphone will be the one of the few phones that people will probably never forget about in the far future.
Why is the Nokia N900 device so damn impressive?
The answer is simple and straightforward to be honest. It brings all the features of any other Nokia phone, smartphone or tablet pc from the past and then multiplies it by 100 times, and that is just the beginning. Innovation is what the Nokia N900 brings with the package and it is no surprise that N900 is being so talked about and famous already after a mere 5 days of official announcement. It blows the Nokia N97 (or any other PDA/smartphone) away in terms of feature, specification, hardware and software and can even replace some of the more high end Netbooks.
