“Messaging is quick with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It has 32GB of storage, which is expandable up to 48GB with a microSD card. For photography, the smartphone has a 5.0-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. ”

“The N900 uses ARM’s Cortex-A8 processor and features a high-resolution WVGA touch screen. Its browser is powered by Mozilla technology so Web sites look the way they would on a computer. ”
