Hello Nokia and Jolla Enthusiasts. As you may know, Nokia N900 was one of the most appreciated Maemo powered phones, having fans all over the world, despite the fact that the production has been dropped.
A team of third party developers have started the development of Neo900, a Nokia N900-based smartphone using Maemo as the default OS and having better CPU and bigger memory than Nokia’s similar phone, plus 4G LTE support.
While the developers are still waiting for donations to be able to release the phone world wide, the first 300 pieces are already built. Read about May’s development progress on the project’s site. Despite the fact that the development is very slow, it is important that the project is still alive and kicking.
The Neo900 phone will have a 3.5″ TFT, 800×480 display, an OMAP3 ARM Cortex-A8 SoC, 512 MB of RAM, 1 GB of NAND flash memory, support for MicroSD card, LTE model, infrared, USB 2.0, bluetooth, WiFi and 2 cameras: VGA in front and a 5 MPX rare camera.
While the Neo900 phone does not have impressive hardware specs, it will have native support for Linux based mobile systems, including Firefox OS, Sailfish OS, Tizen or Ubuntu Touch.
