main disadvantage: low battery capacity for too highspecs
i dont use it for skype. because it eats up the battery damn quickly.
i therefore switch on the 3g whenever i want to use the internet, dim the brightness to 2 bars only, and buy 1 spare battery and its charger.
advantage:can go online both yahoo messenger and skype (sometimes cannot)at the same time. i guess the same goes to other chatting medium. blackberry cant do this
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2009haha iphone copycat! thanks for the sliding keyboard it contrast somehow!haha nokia likes and ... moreI used to work for a Mobile distribution company and I brought the N900 from the 1st container that was shipped to UAE i have been using this phone since 7 months, and trust me its nothing like the Iphone, Iphone with its user friendly features targets only on non techie people. But the N900 even allows the user to create own programmers in case you are a Linux programmer and even the interface is sooo fantastic and since this operates on Memo 5 (Linux OS) you just cant compare it with anything in the market soo far, and as for the design of the phone, a phone is a phone it has to have a Mic and speaker what ever come in between are the additional techno the N900 is not the 1st phone that looks like the Iphone, it also has N800, and N850 which looks the same and these were not in the category of phones they where in the category of Internet Tablets, which did not support GSM. That is the exact reason why i brought this phone in the 1st place, as i don't wish to experiment with my investment in a technology that is very fresh in the market so when i heard of these models N800+ and i had confidence in this technology, and believe me the way everything is integrated in this phone, wow its like i just go to a mall, or office, or home and all my mails are sync automatically, weather forecasts are updated, facebook status are updated, i get all the lyrics of songs i am playing, this phone is like a crocodile (a crocodile is very powerful when in water), in this case the N900 is a crocodile and Wireless Internet is water, and you can actually browse any1s laptop if some1 has enabled file sharing, works real perfect, I see so find so many laptops with enabled file sharing in malls. VoIP works cool with skype (Audio & Video) and gtalk, however I admit to some main problems which would make this phone flawless if fixed,
Battery backup time really sucks it has been improvised after the latest update but still it's just unsatisfactory,
You cannot save favorite locations in the GPS maps (I was really addicted to this feature since I had a N95 8GB) I used to save all location to where i was not sure how to get 2 the next time.
No built in Yahoo IM :( .
Capacitive touchscreen feature.
my name is Danveer and i am planing to buy this phone so i want to ask that should i go for this one or not.
i heard that maemo 5 is a nice OS but nokia is shifting from maemo to moblin.
so is this phone worth buying.
also can anyone please suggest me any other phone also.
basically i want a touch screen phone with a full qwerty key pad.
i am also thinking about palm pre but i am still confused which one should i buy.
I am using this phone since one month battery backup is too wick internet is to slow before I was used E66 that model was fantastic you can use internet very fast you can install easily ebody messenger but this model is not easy to install

Thanks for your response.
I bought this phone because it was designed around Skype! What a let down! I use skype for my business calls 7 days a week. I think its time I changed it.
Does anybody know if the Nokia E72 handles Skype well or not?
I was a N900 user since February. I just switched to an iphone now. I experienced the same problem as u r facing now. In my case, it happened when i talked someone on Skype in Bangladesh. I contacted so many times to Skype support team and did many things they told me. I upgraded the OS 3 times to avoid the problem but couldn't. So lastly I got rid of it as I depend heavily on Skype. I had to even buy a 3 PAYG phone just for Skype. Now I carry only my iphone instead of 2 phones. This particular problem happens when u try to call someone who uses Skype on Fring. So try avoiding calling on Fring. One last suggestion, get rid of it if u can. This was Nokia's experimental project which even they gave up half way. Now they are working on Moblin not Maemo. Good luck.
I've had this phone the day it was released, i was so excited but after a while im disappointed, battery sucks, and no ovi maps which i need soon since I'll be traveling. E% or C6 are the next choice, I'm coming back symbian , daddy's coming home,

Cos the applications in Extras-Devel. or Extras-testing are still under testing and in their early stage.
Hope everyone will be careful.
open source phones are not safe to use. third party apps are not monitored therefore can easily damage your the software on phone as i have experienced my self. nokia need to be careful as they are risking their reputation here.
if you Guys here work's in finance,i work whit My Nokia N900 and Gsmarena is a nice place for y'all....
We are Waiting Nokia MeeGo in Gsmarena
i would again like to clarify that this phone model is not a communicator..yup it has all the features..but nokia has not announced it as a communicator..i m having nokia e90 n believe me communicators are not those kinds of street phones which come out every now and then..they have their own class n eligance which others cannot match..
