Nokia Brings N900 Rover Tablet Device Soon

Nokia could well unveil a new mobile internet device or MID, the N900 Rover, which would be positioned as the successor to the N810 tablet computer which was launched back in October 2007.

Mobilecrunch says that the device will feature a 3.5-inch 800x400 touchscreen display, an OMAP3430 600Mhz processor (same as the one you will find in the Palm Pre), a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and dual internal LED flash, 1GB memory, WiFi, HSPA compatibility, GPS and an accelerometer.

The MID will also pack a significant 32GB internal memory which can be expanded via microSD to 48GB. The N910 boosts similar features to the N97, Nokia's flagship smartphone but is slightly stockier thanks to the built in keyboard.

The Rover weighs only 150g and as it is much more portable than its previous predecessor, could well turn out to be a sexy rival to existing 3.5-inch smartphone models from other manufacturers, including Nokia own E/N series.

The internet tablet is expected to be announced in June 2009 and will certainly sell for more than the £178.24 that the N810 Internet Tablet currently commands. The latter also had a much bigger screen and a stand. Based on Symbian (Maemo 5), the N900 is set to offer Firefox 3 with support for Flash 9.4 as well as VOIP.

Does the N900 make sense now that the netbook PCs are all over the place? It would make sense for Nokia to come up with a netbook right now and there have been speculations that the company was in talks with Taiwanese firm Elite Computer Systems or ECS to produce one by the end of the year.
