Many people know Nokia to be the biggest handset manufacturer in the world. They also sell more smart phones than everyone else as well. We now take a look at Nokia’s best offering in the smartphone arena, the Nokia N900
, and evaluate how smart of a phone it really is and whether or not it’s really a phone that can help Nokia retake their crowning title.
First of all, we would like to start off this review by stating the fact that the Nokia N900 is by no measure a “new” phone. This phone has been out for quite some time but has slowly been releasing every month or so to new markets across the globe. The N900 internally is nothing spectacular by comparison with all of the phones out today. The N900 features a Texas Instruments TI OMAP 3430 which features an ARM Cortex-A8 processor running at 600 MHz and a PowerVR SGX 530 GPU featuring Open GL ES 2.0Diagram of the OMAP3430 processor. This is the same processor as the Motorola Droid.
In addition to that, the N900 features up to 1GB of application memory utilizing 256MB of RAM with an additional 768MB of virtual memory. On top of that, it also has 32GB of internal storage and a memory card slot for an additional 16GB allowing up to 48GB of storage on the N900, still surpassing most smartphones today. The N900 also has a Lithium-Ion 1320 mAh battery which provides juice to all of the parts on this powerful phone. The phone is also a slider phone which means that it has a slide out full QWERTY keyboard, but in the N900’s case it is only a 3 row QWERTY unlike some larger ones.
When it comes to visuals, the N900 has a 3.5” screen displaying at 800x480 resolution. The camera itself shoots at up to 5 megapixels and is assisted by a dual LED flash. The video camera that is shared by the 5 megapixel camera is capable of delivering 840x480 resolution video which is effectively the same resolution as the phone’s screen. The N900 also has a front facing vga camera which enables video calling and video chatting which we will detail further into the review.
If you are into audio, the N900 has you covered from all angles. The N900 has two speakers that are setup in stereo to be on the left and right sides of the phone. It also sports a 3.5mm headphone jack for easy listening with headphones or to use a headset for making calls. As if this weren’t enough you can also wirelessly send your music via FM radio to your car or any other FM tuned device.
