For those who have been under an iPhone-shaped rock for the past few months, the Nokia N900 is an uber-powerful handset which uses the Maemo 5 operating system, based on Linux. This means it won't melt when you want to do multi-tasking.

Also on board is a high-res screen, 3.5-inch screen and although it's resistive we have tried it and it works like a dream.

Couple this with the fact that it will be among the first devices to have Firefox mobile and what you have is a device that looks ready to take on the Google and Apple's of this world.

The Nokia N900 is officially coming soon on the Vodafone website, with a release date of January.
