Maemo is already 1 year old. And the OS'd new version is PR1.3. Nokia has mentioned that with PR1.3 installed in N900 will have dual boot support for Meego Os. That means single device two OS.
Meego is officialy the new Os of Nokia for smartphone planned for 2011 mid. Its user interface is much faster and supports multitouch, and a vast lot of features. N900 is the most versatile device ever released. you can even install Android in it NITDroid is the Android for N900.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2010ok guys, thanx for the advice, the problem seems to be at my tv. I plugged it into my parents ... moreN900 tv cable put is still RCA ( yellow white red ) it still good to see in CRT TV ( the old one TV ) and also still good in LCD but after this day i try my brother phone N8 with free HDMI adapter and HDMI cable to lcd, then i compare between N900 conected to lcd via RCA with N8 via HDMI cable....Wow lot of different output. N8 with HDMI conected in LCD looks so much better ,clearer and sharper. so...i wish later nokia make a special adapter for N900 so maybe i can plug my N900 to lcd via HDMI.
manu, 17 Oct 2010ya thnx demetrius. i did found your post How to create Group on N900 : first you will ha... moreMycontacts is now in extras repository so no need to enable extras-devel or extras-testing now. Now that u have installed mycontacts disable the extras-devel and testing repositories.
i think this phone is excellent...i m very happy with this device...its features r marvallous...but battery consumtion or battery timing disappionts me alot...this device is just like mini laptop in your hand...

Demetrius, 17 Oct 2010I personally answered this question before 2 months my friend. ya thnx demetrius. i did found your post
How to create Group on N900 :
first you will have to install EXTRAS-DEVEL and EXTRAS-TESTING
you can easily do the install by clicking on the two links above with your n900 browser. it will automatically install them for you.
then open your appmanager (blue clipboard looking icon)
then type "root" and install the rootsh app.
after that is done, you can do 1 of two things to get better familiar with your n900.
1. you can type "myc" and then crochick mycontacts will show up and you can install it then.
2. to help you learn xterminal
apt-get install my contacts
and it will install it faster.
i checked yesterday till first 30 pages but when you said you answered it, i went on and on..
thanks for your reply..:)
After struggling with this machine for 4 months, I've reached the end of my tether and am going back to my old non-smart Nokia. Before I mention the downsides, there are 4 wonderful things about the N900: 1. lovely keyboard. 2. beautiful screen quality 3. excellent camera. 4. great for surfing the web. But: 1. as a phone, it is a joke. It is a fiddle to bring up the keypad, it doesn't tell you when you've missed a call, it sometimes forgets to tell you you've got voicemail, and you can't collect voice messages in a normal way (I had to run voicemail setup every time). Oh and there's no MMS. 2. it weighs a lot 3. it needs charging daily 4. it keeps slipping out of your hand, though sadly not breaking when it hits the ground, so you don't get an excuse to throw it away and buy an i-phone instead. 5. the screen is unresponsive to the touch. Bashing it against a wall a couple of times seems to wake it up. 6. When it finally notices you frenziedly prodding at the screen, it responds with a "grunt/shudder" effect. You can turn off the grunt but not the shudder. I kept both on, because the shudder seemed somehow more horrible on its own. 7. The screen becomes magically very responsive as soon as you slide it into a pocket or bag, at which point a feather-light touch will suffice to set the device to some mode you've never seen before and don't understand. 8. When you toggle between screens, it rarely takes you straight to the one you want. It jumps around randomly for a bit first, and often goes back and forth between the same 2 screens several times before taking you to a 3rd. 9. Don't do what I did, and buy it mainly for the Satnav. It insists that I am 5 or 6 streets over from my real position, and you can't correct this, so any resulting directions are useless. In any case, it's hard to figure out how to work the directions. It's OK just as a collection of maps, so long as you're online to download them; unlike with earlier Nokia phones you can't pre-load them. So that's expensive if you're abroad. 9. It's not supported by many service providers, at least in the UK. Can't complain about the build quality, though. After 4 months of banging it, shaking it, hurling it to the ground and stamping on it, it's still going strong.
Guys what do we have to do to play 3D android games on this? Install android and have a dual boot or use an emulator?? Which method is best? Reply pls,thanks.
Demetrius, 16 Oct 2010It seems like , IMPOSSIBLE, a year after ,watching posts regarding MMS, Screen resolution, GPS... morei checked every video at youtube, every software at maemo.org but could not find a way to do one thing.
CAN we make a group of friends to whom we can send message together by just selecting the group instead of selecting the names of contact every time.
you are my last hope as i could not find any answers any where else.
Demetrius, 16 Oct 2010It seems like , IMPOSSIBLE, a year after ,watching posts regarding MMS, Screen resolution, GPS... morehey demetrius.. i know it know how would you be feeling. same questions everyday.. i hope people try to find there answers themselves instead of just asking here
It seems like , IMPOSSIBLE, a year after ,watching posts regarding MMS, Screen resolution, GPS guidance, Facebook accounts, Skype, Bluetooth sharing... What happens?
Nokia managed to create so advanced device, and the hummanity left alone ?
Guys and Girls, if you really want to get to the next level, you have to study, search, study, search . Don't expect everything ready in your plate. There are thousands of pages of writen solution and answers and you are always read the page number 1. Of course , GSM Arena doesn't care because they get paid by clicks...(see the advertises?), so, don't let the device beat you.
My n900 keep rebooting I send it in but my replacement will be ship back to me on 11/15/2010 but nokia send me a new c6 to use in the mean time they send my n900 they also say that the c6 is mine to have for free.
That what a call being #1 in the world, Apple will never do something like that, well done nokia, well done.
i really want to buy this phone but i affair the nokia will discontinues this phone and not any backup in future.
So, let's say that 95% of LCD monitors in our shops are not really 16,7M but just 262K. Only the most expensive ones are really 16,7M (IPS...). Same is with LCDs on the phones where are all really 262k.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2010only 65k colours???
btw, how are the games and apps on this phone
thxYes, in spec is mentioned 65k, but I don't know what is truth. If you check info about 5800MX you will see 16M. But if you compared both phone in real you will is that N900 has better screen. Also N900 has higher pixel destiny than Desire/Nexus or Galaxy S.
I think that screen on N900 has definitely 16M interpolated, which is the same for most of PC LCDs. Most of PC LCDs are TN and they are not really 16,7M, because they are 18-bit!!! Read more on wikipedia:
