Does someone know, if they kept the debian package manager (apt) on the phone? Coz debian has the full arm features, better then gentoo. Is there a gcc available on the device (and perhaps terminal, and changeable root password?) Are the drivers open source for the phone? (On Android HTCs, not) Can I boot from memory card, if I want to install another arm-based OS? And have someone tried kde programs on it? (amarok1, amarok2, konqueror, kaffeine, etc.)
WTF! I was talking here, praising the N900.
I was about to buy when I saw it doesn't support __custom ringtones__ (each contact). Can you believe? Many people will be buying it without knowing! After all, you take that for granted on any phone... my ancient 1108 that I still have has that. And it's a __monochrome__ (not grayscale) phone from 2005.
No seriously, now I know why the iPhone has the credit it has. Very limited, but at least it is only launched when it's finished, polished and now it's well supported.
So.... it has über L33T root terminal and more, but no portrait, accelerometer based mode. No SMS and no custom ringtones. What else this $550 phone (shouldn't it be MID?) does not have? What about phone book, LOL!! That would make Graham Bell obsolete, you know?
Alright, just talked to a T-mobile USA agent, they're not planning to release the Nokia N900 for the next 2 months if ever.
damn. I'm probably gonna stick with AT&T then.
0v0, 15 Nov 2009of course :)How do you say that? Where did get that information? Can you post the link of that source? Many sites say that there is no voice dialing in Nokia N900.
N, 15 Nov 2009N900 is king of multitasking :)Nokia was always known for multitasking i don't know why the palm tries to take that title from nokia for?
MY E70 was bomb back a few months ago and now i have a 5800 and soon the N900 they never let me down but my 5800 got bangged up so it's acting up now

another in-depth review:
Farhan, 15 Nov 2009LOL!
its ok Vin!
totally understandable, i would have been distracted too the whole time, i... moreI would recommend you to go to one of those website who published a review of the pre-release and just ask them as a comment on the bottom of the review.
they usually answer quickly.
0v0, 15 Nov 2009Thank you so much for the reply & thanks for your help and concern
really appreciate,,,,,:)... moreyou're welcome.
I hope they get all those apps pretty quickly.
I think they were just in a hurry to get the phone out.
But the beast has an open OS, so it shouldn't be hard to get those little extras.
as far as the compass, since I got that e-mail directly from Nokia, i tend to believe it more than the maemo community's discussion.
Ganpat, 15 Nov 2009Can anyone confirm if N900 can take videos in 30fps frame rate?
I just saw this review from... moreI would tend to believe what ubergizmo writes.
His reviews are pretty straight forward, he's not a fanboy from any brand and he knows what he's talking about.
But you can ask him any questions at the end of the review. He usually responds within a day.
here you come! Maemo 5 on Linux and Mozilla browser!!!
it's just wow!!!
