Finally Nokia came to their senses and offers now a smartphone with Linux on it. They decided not to go with Android, but with Mameo Linux on the new Nokia N900. I just watched the hands-on video of the Nokia N900 that Nokia published and the Nokia N900 looks to be a solid new contender in the smartphone sector.

I called for dropping mobile only OSes in a report two years ago. Palm dropped theirs a couple months ago with the also Linux-based WebOS. Now Nokia offers a Linux smartphone with impressive hardware specifications.
Nokia says that the N900 is offering Desktop like experience and they even give you a mouse cursor.
The battle is on between the iPhone 3GS, Palm Pre, BlackBerries and now the Nokia N900.

No matter how you turn it though, Apple still has a major advantage with the huge App Store. Nokia needs to do a lot of Ovi, Ovi Magic to catch up.
