Is a Nokia Internet Tablet coming soon to T-Mobile USA?
From time-to-time I use my Nokia N810 and really do think it is a solid piece of hardware with some cool functionality. However, it often seems to lag when working with email or web browsing and it seems that the processor needs a major bump or else the OS needs more optimization. MobileCrunch posted rumored details of a possible Nokia N900 follow-up to the N810 Internet Tablet. The N900 (aka Rover or Maemo Flagship) looks similar to the Nokia N97 with many of the same specifications. The main differences are the use of an 800×480 touchscreen display and Maemo 5 operating system.
The rumored specs indicate the N900 has an OMAP3430 500/600 MHz processor, quad-band GSM and HSPA support, 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 32GB internal storage and removable memory, and integrated GPS receiver.
I was particularly interested in hearing it may even come to T-Mobile USA in August/September 2009. Given that T-Mobile is one carrier that seems interested in new technologies and trying out different things (Google Android, UMA, T-Mobile HotSpot @Home) I can see them marketing it as a couch surfing tool or mobile web browser to use at T-Mobile HotSpots.
Do any readers here use a Nokia Internet Tablet? Are you interested in another device in the series?
