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.

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

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.

Live footage of the Nokia N900 hasn't been in short supply - in fact Nokia themselves provided some decent walkthrough videos of their new smartphone/internet tablet hybrid - but there's nothing like a few in-the-wild shots to get the blood pumping.  Happily there's more than just one prototype N900 in the wild, and now that the touchscreen Maemo marvel is finally official they're starting to come out of the woodwork.

Nokia N900 Rover Gets Official Snapshot

Nokia N900 Rover Gets Official Snapshot

There's been plenty of images of the Nokia N900, or Rover if you prefer, up until this moment in time, but most of them just seemed to lack that "official" flare. That kind of picture that we all look for, especially when it comes to the alternative "blurry" cam photos. And here we have the official photo of the Nokia internet tablet, which is slated to have an official release date next week, during Nokia World. But, here's the image we've been waiting for, minus a full keyboard, but it does show some awesome headphones.
