The first non-Nokia Maemo device is currently nearing production. Review samples of Optima's OP5-E have been sent out to a few lucky bloggers. ARMdevices got their hands on one, and they've put up a whole host of images of the new MID. The OP5-E has a 4.3" resistive touchscreen, 806 MHz Marvell ARM processor, 128 MB of RAM, 3G, a sim card slot, GPS, Bluetooth, and an exchangeable 2600 mAH battery that offers 8 hours of use. You'd expect a gadget like this Optima to be fairly pricey, but it only comes to $500 unsubsidized. That's slightly cheaper than the Motorola Droid. We'll need to get a more filled-out spec list first, but if this thing has a decent amount of flash memory it would make an excellent VOIPphone choice. Long live Maemo!
