Nokia N900 Leak

Nokia's long-in-progress sequel to the N800 series tablet may largely be a more advanced version of the N97 smartphone, a leak on Monday hints. Possibly called the N900, MobileCrunch claims it would have a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a slide out (if non-tilting) QWERTY keyboard but would carry a much sharper 800x480 resolution, a faster TI OMAP processor and 1GB of memory thanks to a 768MB virtual memory cache. It would run the Linux-based Maemo OS instead of Symbian.

Many of its other features would also remain familiar, including the combination of 32GB of internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, but it would gain new features in software thanks in part to the faster hardware. It would be capable of capturing 800x480 video and would run Firefox as its browser, including with full Flash support. Despite the form factor, it would still have GSM, EDGE and HSPA-based 3G and could make cellular calls as well as using the access for data.

If accurate, the N900 would ship as early as July for Asia, the Middle East and T-Mobile's worldwide divisions; T-Mobile USA would get the tablet with native 3G in August or September, and the rest of Europe would have access in October.
