N900 Hands-on from Nokia World

Posted on 02 September 2009, Last updated on 03 September 2009 by

I’m sure we’ll see tens of these videos before Nokia World is over but here’s the first one.

Slightly out of focus but looking very very smooth indeed. JKK and I agree that that rotation zoom gesture is horrible ;-)

Another video here.

Makarus has a nice set of photos coming through from Nokia World too. (Also part of a post from The Nokia Blog)


12:46: Slashgear now have a hands-on video and photo set available. Here. “…the keyboard is compact but tactile, though we’re still not keen on the offset space-bar.”

15:34: Phone Arena have posted some videos. The N900 video is in Russian Bulgarian (sorry!) but again you get an idea of how fluid the UI is. A very short browsing demo is also included.

16:31: One of the best Maemo video overviews so far. A live demo at The Nokia Blog

19:30: Slashgear sat down with Ari Jaaksi of Nokia. There’s some interesting information about the N900 including USB mass storage mode, the Maemo 5 to Maemo6 upgrade path, over-the-air upgrades and a target 1-day connected usage battery life. Read the full article here.
