[deleted post]In case you haven't noticed n900 doesn't come with a provider lock,3year contract and a subsided price
So who is really the cheap one here
.....go and wait in line for your 99$ - 299$ iphone for 3year
plus with the price of my n900 i can get 5 iphone 3gs 16gb
but why would i if i have a mobile computer
Apple deserve to be taken court by Nokia,as Apple have just infringed all the innovations Nokia have been investing into to improve software an services on mobiles,Apple would not like it if it was Nokia stealing there ideas,Nokia will also be hitting back at Nokia with the N8,£320 for N8,iPhone 4g will be over £500 i bet,so Apple have got to Realise you buy a Mobile mainly for calling an texting but with all the features on the iPhone are not free all the time an the iPhone way too expensive for the U.k but might be o.k for the Yanks
[deleted post]I have one. It's neat. That's it. I disagree with you 100%. I can afford any phone on the market. It is a quality novelty product but not very functional as an actual phone.
I prefer HTC and Android who promote FREE development. Nokia was great, they just became outdated with their symbian devices.
Killersmith, 10 May 2010You got owned dude....N900 runs 2 OS's....You forgot n can quad boot
Full desktop linux
Lol it was slow before since no one overclocked it but now 900mhz will make the desktop OSs looks smoother

Go Nokia, crush that fruit for all its worth!!
Then other brand, follow the leader.
The iphone is so bad, it gets all the media coverage, a section on Download.com of it's own for new apps every week, and rave reviews from the smartest and best respected websites/tech magazines in the world.
And all this is simply posturing by both companies. If Nokia won a huge court case against Apple and it's patents, then it will open up a huge can of worms, and invite itself to be sued by every innovator out there, big and small.
My prediction: A out of court settlement, with both companies sharing technology.
I`m almost certain that an US court will not let Apple loose this battle against nokia in their country (US), apple beeing an Us Corporation, as for others countrys that is another story .
[deleted post]I have tried an iPhone 3G and it did suck. I was missing basic features that I took for granted. Forwarding text messages is a good example (which my first cell a SE T39 had) of a basic features that was just missing. Much about it worked well. I likened the iPhone to a brilliant student who refused to take reading and math seriously. I dumped it after three months and got an iPod touch & a nokia.
Apple has attacked an awfully strong foe. It will be interesting how it plays out. They may win a battle or two in US courts & loose the war in overseas courts. There integrated hardware and software model has repeatedly pushed them into small market shares. Google may beat Apple as there software is comparable to apples & the volume of quality manufactures producing innovative handsets crush the iPhones hardware.

[deleted post]Because apple did it a again and released another device using nokia's tech.nokia has been leaniant towards apple thinking they could just them to pay but apple keeps ignoring them
All nokia wants apple to do is pay the licensing fee like every other company
And if they do apple will have alot of money problems
Cause they will count every unit sold plus Ipad units with 3g
Corleone, 10 May 2010IF and i say if the Iphone uses Nokia technlogy then its kinda sad that Nokia cant build a dec... moreI'm sorry you feel that IF so dearly Corleone but it seems that you know absolutely NOTHING about Nokia. If you did, then you would'nt have made such a comment about how Nokia can't make a device better than iPhone. This comparison on this very site makes everything you said utter crap:
N900 vs 3GS (Specs) - Nokia DOMINATES
N97 vs 3GS (Specs) - Nokia DOMINATES
N8 vs 3GS (Why even go there) Nokia easily DOMINATES
but if you must have the comparison:
The only thing that makes iPhone decent is the software, the hardware of the iPhone is sub-par at best and you talk about Apple has better technology. Yeah right, Apple doesn't even know how to make a phone that you can take the back cover off to change the battery. SD card? Never happen on Apple. Jobs won't allow it. Open source development? Won't happen. Jobs won't allow it.
Man, for his name to be Jobs, he's surely not supplying anybody with one. Apple sucks, Jobs sucks, Nokia BOSS!!! HTC and Nokia need to Bake Apple. That way, their crap would be of some use.
