Nokia N900: The Power of a Slider

Nokia N900A New Slider Phone

The new slider phone from Nokia is certainly something special; it is simply a significant step forward for the mobile phone industry. Not only does it come with a sophisticated and classy body, it also has the brains to match. The new Nokia N900 will be bringing a new kind of mobile experience to users that should make up for its lack of extensive applications library (like that of the Iphone). It may not be the perfect phone out there but there will be no other mobile phone in the market that will allow you to do what this slider can; and that is multitasking like you were using a personal computer.

The Design and Features

The Nokia N900 comes in a 110.9 × 59.8 × 18 mm case that slides out horizontally to show a full QWERTY keypad. It also has a 3.5-inch, 800 x 480-pixel, touchscreen display that will suffice for viewing videos, photos and WebPages. The QWERTY keypad allows users to easily use the extensive email, SMS, and instant messaging features of this phone. The design is simple, yet has an understated sophistication that hides a plethora of features and applications. It also has good multimedia features, a wide range of connectivity, 5.0-megapixel camera that is packed with features of its own, a Mozilla-based browser, AdobeFlash 9.4 support and other applications typically seen in smartphones.

Multitasking Power

But the real feature of this slider phone is its use of the its Meamo software (Linux) that allows it to run multiple applications at the same time, much like one would in a personal computer. With the addition of the OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration and ARM Cortex-A8 processor, Nokia has made multitasking a fast and smooth experience. Thus, running applications all at once will not lead to lags and hanging but a nice and fluid experience. Through the dashboard, switching applications is also a breeze truly giving it the personal computer experience in a mobile handheld gadget.
