Anonymous, 03 Sep 2009Hmmm, it seems that the Motorola Sholes might, just might, be the device going against the N90... moreLOL? you must be from US if you think motorola has anything to do with SMARTphones. I mistakenly had A1000... what a junk, but hey, you guys think that razr, kazr, and krapr ar cool and iPhone is awsome :))
sry don't take it personaly
"Just the concept idea of the active desktop is a copy off se x2, this device is still piece a crap!?"
OMG I'm so lame I just realised xperia 2 has totally ripped the deskto off N97
My bad gys, this is an awsome device!
s, 03 Sep 2009Very fat and big. Very good for self-protection. mm, but omnia hd , touch pro2 or xperia will be more helpful for that...
Is the fm radio and digital compass confirmed?????
If. It has the above, this is the greatest phone
hope for other maemo based mode. From nokia

N900, 03 Sep 2009nice post,
just answer me, is the auto-rotate available now in the maemo community? how ea... morestill waiting for perfection?
n900 is such a strong step forward, can't wait to get one
but within strong competition and the urge to release more products, heavier packed, things are done in a quick manner, thus not to perfection
i'm still nostalgic about my SE p910i, so many features, everything working like a charm. it lasted me 4 years that phone, and it's still running in other hands
i have a good feeling about this n900...
will be it be much better then nokia n 97 or not.......
as there is a bit prob with the lock system of nokia n97..........
is there any option to make it better....
i believe i will not be getting this probs in that........

just answer me, is the auto-rotate available now in the maemo community? how easy is it to enable it? simple as download and install and run?
and can someone answer me, is it confirmed that N900 has FM radio? digital compass, i just need an offical word about it,
thannk you and nokia
if N900 is a success, we would see more model of it in the near future, just like nokia did with the 5800 and N97 mini, something like
N900 capacitive edition
N900 music edition
N900 with similar N97 design
N900 Xenon flash

Sorry -- maemo.org is the official development community for MAEMO OS for the N900. The people in this community also contributed to the development of the N900. Laymans term: the Nokia N900 doesn't come with auto-rotate 'activated', but it's native possible to make the applications auto-rotate.
Maemo has a very active community. Just like downloading a song for iPhone, you can also download a modification for the N900 to make it auto-rotate. I mean, it's true that the N900 doesn't come with auto-rotate built in, but the iPhone doesn't come with tons of applications, mp3's and games; you still need to download it and install it yourself. :)
The difference is with Maemo's active community and linux operating system, you aren't restricted to just mp3's, games, and applications from Apple. That's the difference between open-sourced and close-sourced.
apple is having a media event on Sept 9, maybe to answer back to Nokia's 4 punch blow but I'm not expecting anything from them specially an iphone with a physical qwerty keyboard so my plan of selling my iphone and buying this phone is inevitable. oh well, the best wins, so N900 wins my money
Does anyone have an idea of how this phone will operate on a Mac pc eg any problems on synchronisation etc????
thanx in advance
kohiiou, 03 Sep 2009Regarding Portrait mode in N900 MAEMO 5/Freemantle: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=31... moreif it auto rotate as flawlessly as symbian or winmo, then its good, without much mess, your links are mess, lay man like me cant understand that. an update of firmware should come, to make it automatic it self, i guaranty in current scene, without ability to go into portrait phone will be big failure and by default it lacks ability of portrait that's official nokia words.
Regarding Portrait mode in N900 MAEMO 5/Freemantle:
Here we have instructions on how to enable portrait mode on the N900:
giggig, 03 Sep 2009For the disappointment of all Nokia n900 lovers.
It is confirmed now now nokia N900 is all ... morehttp://maemo.org/
Modifications to the MAEMO operating system has been done for ages. Since MAEMO is open-sourced, it is easily modifiable to be landscape only to portrait/landscape function.
The MAEMO was originally based on GNOME UI, so it's most likely a Linux build that is easily modifiable to be able to auto-rotate (since there is also an hardware accelerometer in the N900), similar to how desktop linux distributions are capable of rotating to Portrait mode.
MAEMO 5 is the newest build, but MAEMO has been around since 2005 (Nokia N770, N800, and N810). The N900 is just the first to go beyond an Internet Tablet and gain the ability to work as a mobile phone, but as you can see from the website maemo.org, there is a huge community in modifying and building 3rd party functionality and applications into the operating system.
Some people in the community has even ported other distributions of linux, including those built on KDE UI, onto N810s in the past; not only does the N900 have the horsepower, it also has the diversity to grow as both a mobile device and a "mobile computer".
