ZDnet just announced a new rumor about Nokia and T-Mobile. Rumored news on the next Nokia Internet Tablet referred to as the N900, Rover,coming this year to T-Mobile USA. It is very similar to the Nokia N97, but with a higher resolution display and Maemo OS rather than S60.
MobileChrunch mentions documents all specifically and repeatedly mention “TMO” launch targets. We’ve never seen this stand for anything besides T-Mobile in this context, and everything still makes perfect sense after swapping out every instance of “TMO” for “T-Mobile”. As such, we assume that is what they mean.
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
- Europe: October 2009
- GPS, along with an accelerometer.
- Dimensions: 59.7mmx111mmx18.2mm

- 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.
