Nokia has officially unveiled the N900 mobile phone, which aims to offer a PC experience on a handset.
Following weeks of speculation, Nokia has showcased the much-anticipated mobile online and has confirmed many of the rumours that were circulating regarding its specifications.
As predicted, the N900 will be the first-ever Nokia mobile phone to employ the company’s Maemo 5 software, which had hitherto featured exclusively on it range of tablets.
This, combined with a QWERTY keyboard and a powerful processor, will give mobile phone users an experience closer to a PC, Nokia claims.
Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president for markets at Nokia, said: "The Nokia N900 shows where we are going with Maemo and we'll continue to work with the community to push the software forward.
“What we have with Maemo is something that is fusing the power of the computer, the internet and the mobile phone, and it is great to see that it is evolving in exciting ways."
The N900, which is widely perceived as the successor to Nokia’s current flagship mobile the N97, will go on sale in October.
