The already rumored Nokia Rover Internet Tablet seems to be getting closer and closer to an official announcement. The handset was spotted in the wild at the beginning of June, when a video that supposedly showed it along with other mobile phones from the Finnish handset maker surfaced, and was reported to have received FCC approval under the name of Nokia RX-51 only a few days ago.
This time around, the handset can be admired in a series of live photos, unboxed, and it seems that it might indeed prove a great Maemo 5-based device. The Nokia Rover Internet Tablet should come to the market with a three-row QWERTY keypad and feature an ARM cortex A8 @ 600mhz up to 1Ghz processor.
Other specs of the device reportedly show that it should come with a 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen that can boast a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, and should sport a 5.0-megapixel photo snapper that comes with Carl Zeiss optics, dual-LED flash, auto focus and a sliding cover. Moreover, it is said to include a microSDHC memory card slot that will enable users to extend the 32GB of internal memory with additional storage space.
In addition, the upcoming Nokia Rover, which has also been named N900, should also include an FM transmitter, as well as a built-in GPS receiver, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth with A2DP capabilities and support for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and WCDMA 900/1700/2100 frequencies. One should agree that the specs of the device seem quite attractive, and the same can be said about its looks.
The photos with the handset come from the kaskus forum, it seems, and have been picked up by BGR. Recently approved by FCC, the Nokia Rover is supposedly on its way towards T-Mobile and might become available for purchase in the near future, though an official announcement hasn't been made yet, neither from Nokia nor the wireless carrier.
