Nokia N900 gets official

Our favorite Finnish phonies haven’t exactly been building a mystery in the months and weeks leading up to today, but the countless Nokia fans waiting for Rover to sit and stay have cause for celebration nonetheless. Behold… the Nokia N900! Nokia’s first Maemo 5-powered handset — in fact, it’s the company’s first Maemo-powered phone, period — is indeed looking like a beauty in its official press renders. Specs are exactly what we’ve known for quite a while:

  • Maemo 5 OS
  • 3.5-inch WVGA (800 x 480) resistive touchscreen display
  • 110.9 × 59.8 × 18mm, 181g
  • Portrait-orientation sliding QWERTY
  • Mozilla-based browser, full Adobe Flash support
  • ARM cortex A8 processor
  • 32GB internal memory
  • 5.0 MP Carl Zeiss camera with dual-LED flash, auto-focus and sliding cover
  • MicroSDHC support up to 16GB
  • FM transmitter
  • Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA 900/1700/2100, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP
  • GPS
  • 1320 mAh battery

The N900 will launch in “select markets” in October with an expected retail price of €500. We’re still expecting it to drop with T-Mobile here in the US of course, but no word on whether or not we can look forward to an October release. Anyone excited to see it on display next week at Nokia World? We know we are. In the meantime, hit the jump for a couple of marketing videos including one that shows off great features like multiple desktop support and a Palm Pre card-like task switcher.
