Why Nokia N900 is ground breaking?

I have been an all time Nokia fan when it comes to mobile phones. I’ve always been carrying one and it’s been a decade now that I’m doing so. The launch of Nokia N900 is for sure ground breaking, and this ground has been broken after a long time.

I bought my first ground breaking Nokia phone back in year 2000. This amazing phone had many new features like a higher resolution monochrome screen, a ring-tone editor, exchangeable covers and most of all, it had no visible stick-antenna on top of the phone. How exciting that was for all of us back then.


Then things moved on and the second ground breaking Nokia I planned to buy was a Symbian smart phone. The first of its kind, Nokia 7650. By the time I collected the money, made up my mind and reached the market, the phone was not available anymore. So I ended up with the good-old Nokia 6600.

Nokia 6600 was my dream come true with multitasking applications, java installables, colored screen, camera, Bleutooth, GPRS internet connectivity and another long list that I’m not posting here 🙂

Fast forward to present date! … Nokia has announced its Nokia N-900 smart phone that happens to be the first Nokia to feature a Linux based OS.


Though all of us have been reading about the acquisition of Symbian by Nokia, upcoming Symbian ^2, Symbian ^3 and Symbain ^4 but this is an interesting turn that Nokia has taken. Nokia N900 comes with a Linux based Maemo 5 operating system which Nokia has been working on for quite some time now.

Following videos give you a preview of the look and feel of Maemo 5 OS:

Following are a few more reasons, why we are speaking so high of Nokia N-900.

Nokia N-900 has:

  • Linux based Maemo 5 OS
  • ARM Cortex-A8 processor running at 600 Mhz. One of the fastest for Nokias
  • PowerVR SGX graphics processor with OpenGL ES 2.0 support
  • Mozilla web-browser
  • 3.5″ tourch screen display with 800 x 480 resolution.
  • Amazing camera that can take photos at 2584 x 1938 resolution and videos at 848 x 480 resolution with 25 fps. Is that a wide-screen DVR or what?
  • Other stuff like 32GB memory, A-GPS, FM Transmitter, TV Out, 3.5mm Audio jack, slide keyboard, Bluetooth 2.1 and a long list again, that I cant mention here 🙂

While I’m waiting desperately for one of these gadgets to be out in the market I must inform you too that Nokia has announced the availability of N900 starting October 2009 with an estimated price of around EUR 500.

Lets all wait for the gadget and hope it comes up to the expectations of the Nokia enthusiasts like me.
