Nokia shipping N810 to US finally

You can finally get an N810 shipped to your house direct from Nokia. In case you’ve forgotten, this thing puts UMPC’s, several laptops, any PMP I’ve seen, and navigations units all to shame at once.

It comes with GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, a touchscreen, an onscreen keyboard, a slide out keyboard, 2GB of storage, a SD card slot to add up to 8GB of more storage, and maps, Mozilla with flash support, and several other apps all built in. The best part is the price point.

Nokia “tweener” tablet tipped in mobile gaming push [Video]

Nokia “tweener” tablet tipped in mobile gaming push [Video]

Nokia's tablet ambitions may see the company slotting a so-called "tweener" device in-between smartphone and the currently available slates, according to Nokia EVP Tero Ojanperä. Speaking at SXSW this week with Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka, the Nokia exec suggested that the existing crop of tablets wouldn't be the last word in innovation, and predicted something somewhat larger than a smartphone could find a niche.

Should Nokia Abandon Symbian S60 for Maemo Linux?

Should Nokia Abandon Symbian S60 for Maemo Linux?

Nokia has a problem: it is both the largest handset vendor in the world, by a significant margin, and the largest smartphone vendor in the world – again, by a significant margin. Yet it has never managed to crack the U.S. smartphone market, and it has begun losing market share even in its European strongholds, primarily to Apple, though RIM, Samsung, and HTC are also threats. Nokia admits that it was caught sleeping while Apple first redefined the mobile user experience with the iPhone, and then again when Apple reenergized app development with the App Store. Nokia’s initial response has been lackluster: adapting its existing Symbian S60 OS to support touch, applying that to a few phones (the 5800 and the N97), and stumbling in its initial launch of the Ovi Store.

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 RX-51 N900 Rover Gets an Unofficial Prerelease Review

Nokia RX-51 N900 Rover Gets an Unofficial Prerelease Review

As we just mentioned earlier today, Nokia is set to announce their RX-51, N900 Rover in just a couple weeks at Nokia World, but the guys over at Mobile Review got a prerelease model and took some time to play with it.  They aren't giving a lot of information out yet, considering they have a lot of respect for Nokia, and even mentioned that if there hadn't been so many leaks regarding the device, we wouldn't be seeing any kind of review from them. Luckily for all of us though, they did it, and they have the pictures to prove it.

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.

Nokia N900 Rover Internet Tablet details leak

Nokia N900 Rover Internet Tablet details leak

Details of Nokia's next-gen Internet Tablet have leaked, suggesting that the Finnish company have moved away from positioning the platform as a companion device and now perceive it more as a smartphone.  According to leaked specifications, the Nokia N900 or "Nokia Rover" now has quadband GSM and 3G HSPA, in addition to the WiFi and Bluetooth of the previous-gen models.  It also sheds some screen-size, scaling down to a 3.5-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen (from 4-inches) though as this leaked image suggests the overall design is very similar to that of the N810.
