Rover Previewed, Loved

After a bunch of speculation, and well, confirmation, we can assume that T-Mobile will be seeing the Nokia N900 sometime in the future.  Some lucky people, however, have had time to extensively preview this monster of an internet tablet, and luckily they documented everything.  The staff over at Mobile Review took the time to preview the Rover and give first impressions, giving some more clues on what to expect come launch time, including a great look at Maemo 5.  They are teasing a few of the specs and keeping the rest until launch day, just to keep our mouths watering.  They have confirmed, though, that the Rover will have a 5 mp camera with Carl Zeiss lens, TV out, a 1500 mAh battery (though the pictures show a 1320), an 800×480 pixel resistive screen (supposedly quite responsive), and just may have 32 GB of internal memory with a hot swappable microSD card up to another 32 GB.  They are also saying that this will be landing sometime later this year, or early next year, so stay tuned.  Choice pictures after the break and hit up the link for the extensive preview.

    It looks like there will be some kind of pull out stylus…i hope it still uses the old pin type charger in addition to the micro-usb

    this thing looks real HOT

  • SpanDee

    So people bitching about 350, this thing’s gonna really cost you both nuts!

  • Oleg

    It would be HOT if it had a phone option built in, unfortunately-it does not… I know that most of you will argue that for an additional payment you can enable Skype and talk to others for pennies on a dollar, or even Google Voice, but just HOW good is T-moblie’s coverage in terms of 3G?

    P.S. for the money they will be asking ($599 unsubsidized) I’d definitely put a capacitive screen on it. WTF MAEMO!!! YOU’RE NOT SYMBIAN!!!

    Defiantly a nice device, but the price that will come from this and no actual cell phone calls to be made from this, not really worth it. love you NOKIA

  • IwantKnoW

    nice? look at that keyboard like wth were they thinking wen they were making this phone. well im not a nokia fan so i dont know what your price range go for $1 – $2 but id say it better be at no more then $199 with a year contract

  • caban

    550 euro.. they can suck it.. fck that.. ill rather buy an iphone..

  • Sanjay

    Did I read this is not a cell phone? It will flop. Nokia is going downhill anyway. They used to be at the forefront. Why would you want this and have to carry another phone? Its all about convergance to one device (real smartphones).

    I would say this was the device for me if it had phone capabilities.

  • ChuckChillout

    Looks like a very sleek 22nd century device. If you notice on the 5th promo picture there appears to be a phone icon which hopefully designates phone capability. This icon also appears at the 46 second mark of the first youtube promo. If it is as functional as it looks, it’ll be a beast.
