With Mozilla web browsing technology and Adobe Flash Player 9.4 on board, the N900 provides consumers with a full web experience on a mobile that now includes video streaming and access to interactive websites that use drop down menus and other features to simplify usage of applications and services.

Additional features include a 5.0 megapixel camera, a 3.4-inch high-resolution touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard packaged within a sleekly designed black case.

A Tesco Telco spokesperson comments: “We are delighted to welcome the N900 into our current portfolio of mobile phones as one of the most advanced mobile computers we now offer. The N900 marks a further step forward to providing our customers with a greater variety of choice at highly competitive pricepoints.”

For existing Nokia N900 a software update last week enables video calling with Skype and Facebook IM chat, together with email and calendar enhancements.
