Maemo 6 Announced | sporting multi-touch on capacitive displays

Nokia has announced a whole new concept when looking at the UI of Maemo 6. The idea that the screen of the device is a window to a full desktop is very intriguing and is referred to as the “Canvas Principle.” Maemo 6 will expand and build upon Maemo 5 and is described as an “iconic user experience and integrated Internet services in one aesthetic package.” Maemo 6 will also support portrait mode, which Maemo 5 currently fails to deliver on the Nokia N900.

Unfortunately it will be at least a year before we can see this come to life, and so the question remains… To N900 or not to N900? As you will need to replace your hardware in order to get the new goodies.
