Compare N900 Deals

The Nokia N900 slider phone is, essentially, an internet tablet/viewing device with a camera on the back, with an 800 × 480 pixel resolution resistive touchscreen (complete with stylus that fits neatly away at the bottom).

Probably the best smartphone Nokia has produced to date, the N900 runs the Maemo operating system - a Linux-based OS backed by major players like Intel - and has four homescreens, on which you can place all kinds of widgets and shortcuts. The screen does not tilt, but has a kickstand in the back.

Facing a tide of ferocious competitors in the lucrative high-end smartphone market, Nokia has produced a real beast of device in the N900: what it calls "a handheld computer with phone functionalities". Internet is fast via 3G/HSDPA and Web pages can be viewed more then ever as on a PC: Flash support comes into its own with web browsing powered by Mozilla and you can run multiple applications thanks to the powerful processor.

There is Wi-fi for hotspot and WLAN wireless, plus Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer and USB support.

There is a slide-out QWERTY keypad and a virtual keyboard, depending on your preference in producing SMS, instant messaging and email output (but no MMS support). The N900 also has a 5 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and a lens cover, with a VGA front camera. Video is captured in an impressive 848 x 480 pixels.

The N900 has 1 GB of virtual memory and 32 GB of storage (7,000 songs or 40 hours of DVD-quality video). Battery life is around 24 hours between charges when the N900 is being used a lot.
