0954: N97 mini launched. New features added to Nokia Maps. A couple of music phones launched.

10:05 Talking about booklet. Highlighting W7 and 12hours battery life. Unconfirmed: I think he said 1.6Ghz Atom. (N270 or N530?) Price 579 Euros.

10:10 Talking about N900…Price. 500 Euros. It’s still 599 on the Nokia Shop in Germany!

    N900. 500 inc tax and I probably would have got one to play with despite knowing the screen is too small for me.

    The Archos android tablet is looking the more likely a purchase now.

    One of the hardcore Maemo guys got a chance to play with an N900

    …and preceeded to install Open Office, GIMP and the LXDE user interface on it. Even at the premium pricepoint it’s targetting it sure sounds like an epic device.

    Hmm. That makes it rather more tempting.

    Maybe I will end up getting one for testing purposes….
