The biggest selling point of Nokia’s N900 smartphone is actually what’s under the hood, specifically the use of the Linux-based Maemo operating system, which Nokia claims delivers a PC-like experience.
Standard-issue N900s come with 32GB of base storage, though there is the microSD card slot which can add another 16GB. Nokia have also come through with a Carl Zeiss optics-based five-megapixel camera, which can take a pretty decent snap when on the move if needed.
Nokia’s boffins are looking to differentiate their latest crop of phones with splashy, attention grabbing features. While the move to a Linux-based operating system is nice, in reality the biggest selling point of the company’s new phone might just be the fact that it comes with a little stand for when you’re using it for computer-like functions.
Cute little features aside, Nokia’s latest foray into the smartphone market has the credentials of a C-level toy with some of the consumer must-haves built in.
