Nokia announces the N900, the start of their next generation of high-end smartphones

After months of rumours and leaks, the Nokia N900 has finally been officially announced. This marks the start of a brand new generation of Nokia smartphones with higher specification processors and graphics, and is arguably Nokia's first direct rival to the iPhone. The N900 uses the latest version of Nokia's Maemo Linux platform, and features a faster CPU and a lot more RAM than Nokia's current smartphones, as well as a QWERTY keyboard, 5mp camera, WVGA screen (800x480 pixels) and a slick new interface. You can find out more on our sister site All About Symbian, and we have some videos embedded below. Ovi Store will of course be coming to the N900, and together with it we expect some high quality accelerated 3D graphics too.

Read on in the full article.

Very impressive list of specs, looks awesome. I think I'd feel alot cooler luggin one of those things around over the Iphone, the only downside i see may be the speed of the network that you can use it on. Price is gonna be a kicker though $700 bucks is brutal.

I wonder what this will mean for nokia and mobile gaming. This thing has the power to do some pretty amazing things graphically.

Erm... it uses 3.5G HSPA and Wi-Fi. There are no faster networks at the moment.

Or are you worried about frequencies on certain US network operators?

Not really, this is actually a pretty typical price for a high end phone.

500 euros unlocked is the European launch price of the N900. For perspective:

European iPhone = 500 - 600 euros unlocked

European Android phones = 500 - 600 euros unlocked

They're all roughly the same price.

The US launch will probably have a lower price to stay competitive with prices there, so I would guess it would be about 500 dollars unlocked in America, and half that (or less) on contract.
