Nokia N900 Hands-On

Nokia-N900PC Mag managed to spend an hour or so with the new Nokia N900 so that they could test and see what it’s all about. The N900 is described as being a dramatic upgrade to Nokia’s internet tablets in that it actually is the right size to being a smartphone. It measures 4.4″ x 2.3″ x 0.7″ and although still not the smallest of smartphones out there, it is an OK size.

The 3.5 inch touchscreen has 800×480 pixels. It uses resistive touch rather than the more responsive capacitive touch type screen, but still works quite well.

The big change in the N900 is the operating system. Nokia have decided to use the Linux-based Maemo 5 operating system and according to PC Mag it runs very smoothly. The OS surprisingly does support Adobe Flash 9.4 which is quite a rare thing on a smartphone.

For the full hands-on check out the PC Mag article where details of the processor and various software features are mentioned.
