This is interesting:-

"Compare the fewer then 100,000 N900s sold over five months with the 8.75 or so million iPhones sold between January and March alone."

if you have updated your n900 and you find the conversation widget and the like are not working just do the following. install Extras-Testing in app manager and save (if you have not already done it! once that's done the phone will update. if you still have the problem widgets on your phone then an update will be shown. download the updates and install. hopefully after that things should work and everything should be back to normal!

in reply to anonymous.. below, with regards to email.....just an update it appears i'm receiving emails automatically now, but i don't know if the problem is corrected or not...hopefully it has!!!!!!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-05-27 13:40 from mJqb - click to readi got in touch with the developers of the widgets and they said download Extras-Testing in apps manager and save (if necessary google the settings). the phone updates and shows updates for conversation widget and data plan and any others that are not working with the new update. install them all and you should find they will work as normal as they do on my n900!

I hope that helps!!!!!!

just one other thing i've noticed....my email does not update automatically even though the phone suggests it does cos when i access my hotmail account on my laptop it shows there is new email. i've tried deleting and reloading the email but still does not work!
Any ideas anyone????? anyone with the same problem?????

Make sure to uninstall Brain Party (otherwise a great game) when updating OTA.

I've just updated my N900 OTA, while at work. No need to connect to a computer just do an update in applications manager. One problem though, i had downlaoded 'conversations inbox desktop widget' before the updated and although it shows i still have it. It does not appear as a widget on any of the home screens, and i can't even set it as a widget????? anyone else with the same problem? Otherwise i have portrait web browsing and a few other tweeks! Just make sure you charge your phone otherwise it won't update! If it helps also i'm on vodafone in the UK.

> In reply to [deleted post]Android is nice, but S^3 and S^4 are on par. Please do not compare with Maemo or MeeGo. When Android stops being a VM, loses all the java, and can run python servers and do proper multitasking, then maybe it can play in the same league.

Imagine the n8 with MeeGo or Maemo5, that would be something. IMO Nokia should have made the N900 their top priority they had such a good start with it. Instead of slowing themselves down trying to fix Symbian, sticking with the N900 and making MeeGo more important than Symbian their status would been unharmed.
