Nokia phone to use Maemo software

The Nokia N900 handset will run on Maemo software previously found in Internet tablet devices, and it plans to use the technology in other high-end models.
The model lets customers multitask and browse more easily than previous smartphones, the Espoo, Finland, company said in a statement. The touchscreen-and-qwerty device will cost about $713 without subsidies and ship in its first markets in October, Nokia said.

Nokia has used Maemo since 2005 in touchscreen tablets wihtout built-in phone functions. The system is based on Linux open-source software, which may help Nokia attract developers in competition with Google’s Android, which is also based on Linux, and Apple’s iPhone.

Nokia N9000
Set to pander to the needs of multitasking mobile users everywhere, and building on the back of Nokia’s previous generations of Internet Tablet technology, the N9000 runs on new Maemo 5 software and will be able to handle dozens of open application windows simultaneously – much as if it were a conventional desktop.

The compact but “computer-grade” N9000 will be looking to flex its muscle thanks to the inclusion of a powerful ARM Cortex-A8 processor, up to 1GB of application memory, 32GBs of data storage (expandable to 48GBs via microSD), OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration, and a capable 5.0 mega pixel digital camera.

The handset also takes advantage of high-speed cellular connectivity (10/2 HSPA and WLAN), a Mozilla-powered Web browser, and will come complete with a high-resolution WVGA touchscreen user interface, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, support for Adobe Flash 9.4, and widget and application personalisation.

Attached to a potentially pocket-testing retail price of €500 Euro (excluding taxes and subsidies), the new Nokia N9000 is expected to hit stores this coming October and will be debuted at next week’s Nokia World event in Stuttgart, Germany.
