A quick primer on Nokia Internet Tablets, plus bonus iPhone slagging.

The N900 is not directly competing with the iPhone. The iPhone is meant to make calls with and post to twitter, very little else. Comparing the two is like comparing a Netbook with a Scientific Calculator. The range of applications being made available for Maemo4 (the N900’s operating system) are MUCH wider than that of the iPhone.

I own a 770 tablet and have trialled an N810 and honestly, I've yet to see a killer app from Maemo.

But I think that will quickly change with the added utility of a GSM radio in the N900.
