Today I was off with a start of a great day. I woke up early took my new car for a spin in the less trafficky than usual streets and arrived at work early. All was great until I came across a blog mentioning the release of the Nokia n900!
How could Nokia do this? The Nokia n97 has been released just under 2 months ago, and they come up with an announcement of a newer… much better phone! Don’t get me wrong… I haven’t regretted buying the N97 at all, it works great and I love everything about it. However as of today, I think this was probably the worst purchase ever.
The new phone features a different operating system than the Nokia’s usual Symbian OS – which probably means that Nokia might be slowly moving now towards the Linux powered Maemo 5 operating system.
The N97 features:
- a much improved touch screen navigation using the Maemo OS
- faster CPU (600mhz)
- more RAM to handle the current running applications
- improved graphics performance with PowerVR SGX with OpenGL ES 2.0 support
So if you are currently craving to buy a Nokia N97 just wait! STOP! you’d be better off waiting until October when the N900 is planned for release.
