PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It's turning out to be a busy week for Nokia. Days in advance of NokiaWorld in Stuttgart, and a couple of days after lifting the curtain on its first netbook, Nokia has announced the Nokia N900, the successor to its almost four-year-old lineup of Internet Tablets. The N900 follows in the footsteps of the N810 with its slide out keyboard, but adds for the first time built-in 3G (Nokia calls it 3.5G) functionality, making the N900 the first Nokia tablet with the ability to go online without a WiFi connection or cellphone pairing. It's also the first Nokia device to run Maemo 5, Nokia's homegrown Linux distro."

It would be great if they adapted Android to run in this device. So they would have Linux (C++, Qt, python, etc)+Java+Android.

Certainly someone (google?) can make it happen, but it's unlikely to come from Nokia ;-).

Google does not want it to happen. Google chose to build a totally new toolkit that's incompatible to everything else on purpose.
Maemo OTOH uses GTK, Clutter and Qt.
