Nokia unveils N900 tablet phone
Nokia has officially unveiled its latest touchscreen handset, the N900.

The flagship device, built on Nokia’s Linux-based OS Maemo 5, features a 3.5-inch screen that Nokia claims will deliever a PC-like experience on the handheld tablet.

The handset is Nokia’s first internet tablet to feature cellular connectivity as well as Wi-Fi.

“With Linux software, Mozilla-based browser technology and now cellular connectivity, the Nokia N900 delivers a powerful mobile experience,” said Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia’s executive vice president for markets.

Maemo 5 allows users to run dozens of applications simulataneously, while making a phone call at the same time.

The handset represents how Nokia is “fusing the power of the computer, the internet and the mobile phone,” Vanjoki said.

Additional features include a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 32GB internal memory, microSD memory card slot, and 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics.

The N900 will launch in November at around £450.
