They named it as new internet tablet from Nokia but it’s more likely to have the characteristic of N97. It’s internally named as “N900″, “Rover”, or “Maemo Flagship”. Here is the hardware details spec for this device:

- 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with dual-LED flash, autofocus, and sliding cover
- Though the renders we’ve seen show two lens-like circles near the screen, we’ve got no word on what’s behind them. However, we feel safe in assuming that its a proximity sensor and a front-facing camera.

Asides from the details specs, the said documents also includes the target release dates for this device which mainly states its T-Mobile and worldwide release.
Target launch dates, as of the beginning of this year:
- T-Mobile International: July 2009
- T-Mobile USA: August/September 2009
- Middle East, Asia, South-East Asian Pacific: July 2009

We can’t still set our foot on these details, but it seems believable. Some major information is still missing right now with availability and price is still open. But to see S60 out of this next version, now with Maemo 5, this would be really an exciting upcoming device for Nokia.
