Optima OP5-E MID first non-Nokia MID to run Maemo

Nilay Patel

Honestly, now that Nokia's hooked up with Intel we didn't think we'd ever see any more straight Maemo devices, let alone random third-party Maemo MIDs, but here we are, looking at the Optima OP5-E. The 4.3-inch touchscreen MID with an 806MHz Marvell processor and 128MB of RAM is said to be going through some final software testing before release, and it apparently will support SMS and telephony in the future, so apparently those KIRF iPhone looks are for more than just confusing tourists. No pricing and likely no availability outside of China, but hey -- Maemo, people. Give it up.
