Nokia Maemo 5 Apparently Perfectly Acceptable For Carrier Customizations

Nokia Maemo 5 Apparently Perfectly Acceptable For Carrier Customizations

It's only been a day since we reported that Nokia was planning on keeping carrier branding as far away from the N900 and Maemo-enabled devices as possible, but it looks like all of that just changed. In a big way. And now, it seems that Nokia is taking a stand in the other direction, leaving us to wonder what the deal really is. Was our excitement misplaced? Or is Nokia just trying to calm the waters, before any real announcements regarding the upcoming N900's release on carriers is released?

After our initial hands-on with the N900 - the video and gallery of which you can see here - we spent some more time playing with the Maemo 5 smartphone at Nokia World this week.  Our initial enthusiasm has been tempered a little by some of the real-world compromises that blending a smartphone and an Internet Tablet demand, though we're still looking forward to a full review unit; check out our hands-on impressions after the cut.

Nokia N97 mini first-impressions [Video]

We made no bones about our disappointment with the Nokia N97 back when we reviewed it in late June, so we were wary of the N97 mini.  Having played with it at Nokia World this week, it's clear that many of the issues we had with the larger model have been addressed; still, there are some glaring frustrations that leave us more enchanted by the N900 than this new, compact device.  Check out our first-impressions and a hands-on gallery and video after the cut.

Talking Nokia N900 and Maemo 5 with Ari Jaaksi

Talking Nokia N900 and Maemo 5 with Ari Jaaksi

We sat down at a roundtable this afternoon with Nokia's Ari Jaaksi, VP of software at the company, and talked about the Nokia N900 and the Maemo 5 OS it runs.  Describing the N900 as "your internet device on the go" and Maemo as "putting the internet first", it's obvious that Jaaksi - and Nokia - have the MID segment in their sights; however they're also upfront about the issues they're going to face not only with their first-gen hardware but the ongoing development of the platform.

Nokia N900 hands-on [Video]

While the Booklet 3G is certainly a neat addition to the netbook segment, there's something undeniably more appealing about the Nokia N900.  We've seen all the specifications and now know the unsubsidized price, so it was about time for some hands-on experience with Nokia's latest flagship.

Nokia N900 Gets Another Video, Showcasing Maemo 5 and Multi-Tasking

Nokia N900 Gets Another Video, Showcasing Maemo 5 and Multi-Tasking

We're starting to really enjoy seeing these N900 videos. The first ones we saw were some pretty quick, albeit informative glimpses of what the N900 was; and then we got a quick taste of what the camera is capable of; and most recently a very loud (both audibly and visually) promotional video. This time around, we've got a clear-cut display of what we're looking at, and what we should expect when the N900 finally launches.

Nokia N900 Maemo 5 Shown Off In Very Vibrant Video

Nokia N900 Maemo 5 Shown Off In Very Vibrant Video

Nokia World is coming. Did you get the memo? Or, should we say, Maemo? If you didn't, you probably still already know about it, considering "we've covered" already. And starting tomorrow, the news will start to take on a far more official standpoint. Not that the Nokia N900 isn't official, because it certainly is, but sometimes getting the information from the horse's mouth is a lot better. And who can say no to press events? We certainly can't. But just in case all those still images of the upcoming Rover weren't doing it for you, here's a video of Maemo 5, the User Interface (UI).

Nokia E52 and E55 Review

Nokia E52 and E55 Review

Nokia World is just around the corner, and the tech world is already gaping at some of the company's more unusual devices.  SlashGear, though, have already been living with some of the Finnish company's more mainstream handsets, those which will probably sell far more than flagships like the N900, in the shape of the Eseries E52 and E55.  Differentiated primarily by an unusual, half-QWERTY keyboard on the E55, they both promise lengthy battery life and smartphone strengths in a compact form-factor.  Check out our full review after the cut.

Intel & Nokia announce Moblin & Maemo collaboration; HSPA licensing

Intel & Nokia announce Moblin & Maemo collaboration; HSPA licensing

Details on the Nokia/Intel collaboration are out, and unless the duo are planning a big surprise for their imminent conference call it's not quite the announcement we were hoping for.  That means no Intel-based Nokia MID or netbook, but a "long-term relationship" to develop new mobile device architectures with integrated Nokia HSPA/3G connectivity.  The pairing will also coordinate their Moblin and Maemo Linux platforms, with common technologies and cross-OS applications.
