N900 - Nokia finally ups the game

Bought a N97 thinking you were getting Nokia´s flagship smartphone? Think again, because the finish giant is releasing its true top of the line handset in October, a mere 2 months after launching the N97.

To be honest, if you thought the N97 was all that, you: did not research properly; too much of a Nokia fanboy. Right now, i´m sorry, you look silly. The N900 puts Nokia finally on par with the iPhone 3GS, Palm Pre, Samsung i8910 and SE Satio in terms of hardware platform:ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor with 256MB of RAM, unlike the clearly underpowered n97. Plus they ditch the HORRIBLE s60 v5 symbian touch UI, using the much more attractive MAEMO 5.

What´s not so hot about it? Well, no capacitive screen and multitouch is enough for me not wanting it. Frankly, right now this should be in any smartphone. Also, it seems way to bulky, but i understand it can be ok for some people, this is a tablet/phone hybrid after all.

More details about the N900 here.
