Is this comes with multitouch capabilities like HTC Hero?
I'm guess not, since even its older brother samsung Galaxy doesn't..
I'm dissapointed :(
when will we get to see real contender of Iphone, a 800mhz cpu phone that support multitouch?? AVI / XviD will be a bonus.
I eagerly wait for this! Come on, Android..

Nokia is loosing market because of the in ability to open an application market. Developing software for symbian is most cumbersome and is bad for your brains. So if they do not come very quickly with their linux based meamo phones they will be pushed from the marked by the ones using Android.

They are loosing market share in each quarter. It's down at 36.8% now, whereas Samsung and LG are up at 19.3% and 10.7% respectively.

Sales figure for the last quarter:

1. Nokia 105.4 mil units, 36.8%
2. Samsung 55.4 mil units, 19.3%
3. LG 30.5 mil units, 10.7%
4. Motorola 15.9 mil units, 5.6%
5. Sony Ericsson 13.5 mil units, 4.7%
6. Others 65.2 mil units, 23%

so maemo 1,2,3,4 were used so little on so little number of devices that almost nobody heard much about this software. Ok number of versions isn't that important but what is important is that is usable to much more custumers than nokia users and that isn't the case. So Android is going to develpe much faster and yes whole software without widgets and tweeks is havy only 20 mb beet that .

Where do you get the information that this will sport an 800 MHz processor as your listed source mentions nothing about that?

So yeah, even though Maemo 5 isn't out yet, it does have a whole lot of history behind it. Much much much more than Android, so let's not go that way.

And to people who rate Samsung's phones as better than Nokia's based only (or mostly, which is almost the same thing) on CPU clocks, OSes vary, and have different needs. Some are "heavier" than others, and require more processing power, memory or whatever. It's not as simple as 9>8. You are free to have your own opinions, but do try to have them well fundamented.

Where I am, given the options available, Nokia's ahead. So that's where I stand.

But you do need to agree with me on one thing, no matter if you believe SE's, LG's or Samsung's options to be superior to Nokia's at the moment, the fact remains that around 40% of the market share is theirs, making them ahead of the rest of the pack.

So about "leading", Nokia is it. Might not be so in the future, but leading is what they're doing right now.

If you mean that their current line of products isn't as good as, say, Samsung, that's another story.

Sure, Sammy has some heavy-hitters like Omnia HD, but it's highly identical to the N900, so I wouldn't say the difference between them is that big.

I wouldn't say Samsung has anything better than N900 except for Omnia HD, but the N900's OS is still unmatched...

1. Samsung (no doubt)
2. Nokia (has a lot of smartphones altough with bad cpu clock)
3. SE (barely have nothing, and patheticly waited for months before release single smartphone with outdated specs and staggering price you know which.. ((:

I'm a Nokia fan, but, let's face it: Samsung's on the first place. After Samsung, comes Sony-Ericsson and then Nokia. Samsung knew how to manage price/technology raport and that's how they're leading...
Hope i am not mistaking...
