A New Beginning
Nokia has big plans for the Maemo operating system (OS). Take a look at the previously launched internet tablets by the Finnish giant, namely the Nokia N800, followed by the Nokia N810. Though relatively niche and new in the mobile industry, the Linux-based OS was supposedly a fresh start for Nokia and its already ailing Symbian S60 platform. As it is, the S60 OS has been seeing a slow down, unable to adapt to the touch technology trends that have taken the mobile world by storm.
In the aftermath, Nokia is now banking on its new Maemo device, the Nokia N900. Taking stock of what they need to get right, and adding cellular features to this updated internet tablet (which shouldn't really be called an internet tablet anymore), there's a whole lot riding on this device. Here's our take on the N900 and how it will change Nokia's future lineup.
