Nokia N900

We’ve been hearing rumors that cellphone maker Nokia was planning to launch a new tablet for a few months. The latest update comes courtesy of DigiTimes, which reports that the tablet could ship in the fourth quarter of 2010.

This isn’t an official announcement yet, so take it with a grain of salt. But DigiTimes says that it looks like Nokia has already begun testing engineering samples, and that the tablet will have either a 7 or 9 inch display.

It’s likely that the new tablet will run MeeGo, a new Linux-based operating system that was formed by the merger of the Maemo and Moblin projects. Maemo was largely a Nokia-backed project, and the company has already released several smartphones and small internet devices running the Linux-based operating system.
