Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009i disagree that the iphone has the best music player with a mono speaker and no fm transmitter... moreFM transmitters are a waste of time, on my drive to work I go past around six communty radio stations, it's impossible to get a clear channel all the way, hardwired sound quality is so much better and is readily available for iPhone's, most new cars have iPod docking as standard or an optional extra.
So why would you want to fiddle with changing stations all the time?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I work in a noisy enviroment numnuts where i have to hear if I'm being paged and at least my n97 is loud enough on its own for music unlike the iphone with its low volume.Headphones and docking doesnt work all the time stupid.

I see you were smart enough not to say that iphone has the best battery life and the best camera or the best viewing experience. Iphone seriously fails in this department.

HD on a phone? Come on. Like I'm really going to dump my LED HDTV at home for the omnia. Be realistic. All they're doing is throwing in seemingly impressive features that produces mediocre results compared to the real thing. Be realistic. Do you think a videophile like me would enjoy watching or taking videos using your omnia. Geez louisse. I refuse to watch or take videos from any phone unless it's merely for trivial purposes, and I do not need hd technology for that. Rather use hardware space for something else.

Nokia phone's are bland and old fashioned, the N900 has a lot of things missing lot's of things are half finished and it doesn't have the polish of the iPhone.
You should tell the sheep who spent $700 on N97's about the N900 so they can feel happy about Nokia releasing such a wonderful phone a few months after the N97.

actualy ... moreWhat "high tech" features are you talking about?
600MHz ARM 8, 256MB RAM, PowerVR, 7.2 HSDPA these ARE the latest"high tech" features.
You are just a biased hater.
As far as "best" phone there is no such thing, different people have different needs.
Best music player, best web browser (NO ADOBE) best applications, etc, etc all belong to the iPhone.

Sorry it's got no document editing.
Can't send MMS.
Most things are stuck in landscape mode.
Here's something about the browser:-
"The browser boasts built-in support for Flash 9.4 as well as AJAX. It would seem not much has changed compared to the previous version, but in terms of philosophy Nokia have tried to deliver browsing experience as close to Apple's Safari as possible, since it's the effective benchmark on the market, that is still unreachable for many other phone makers. And Nokia with their Maemo Browser are not an exception.
But the first thing we need to find out about this browser is how quickly it renders pages. For reference, The Nokia N810, compared to any iPhone, ends up hopelessly behind Apple's smartphone. Being an owner of both devices, however, I must say that my bedside table has been occupied by the iPhone for quite a while now - the simple fact is that it is speedier and doesn't have as many flaws (it does crash occasionally, but in return its page rendering speed is phenomenal). That's why I had been really looking forward to the new N900 and its revamped browser, however after a month of quality time with it I reached an unfavorable conclusion - even though Maemo Browser is developing at a rapid pace, it hasn't caught up with the rest of the pack yet, as it still can't stand comparison to the browser application found in Android-based phones or Apple's iPhone (Safari WebKit). Why so? Perhaps there is not a whole lot of resources allocated to this department, although Maemo Browser still beats the application available in S60 devices."

Here's some more of the "buzz" I've heard about the unwanted N900:-
"It makes very little sense to review this side of Maemo5 in isolation from the hardware department, so we'll try to focus on all aspects right here. The platform employed by the N900 (and Nokia aren't planning to ditch it any time soon) sports DAC33 audio chipset, identical to the one found in the Nokia N97, meaning that all phones running on this platform will have fairly good audio quality. But unfortunately music-related software has never been the top priority for Maemo, so what we can see in the N900 are merely first steps in the right direction, as its player doesn't even feature any equalizers yet. Another drawback we can't overlook are the on-screen volume controls that are way too small and fiddly to use - in most cases you'll be better off punching the volume rocker mounted on the casing. For some bizarre reason the handset doesn't have FM-radio, even though it does offer an FM-transmitter (that allows you to pick a frequency and broadcast some nonsense) whose quality is on par with other transmitters found in mobile devices - in other words, it leaves much to be desired."
I think you should go tell the Nokia sheep who wasted $700 buying N97's about this phone, I'm sure they will appreciate having to shell out for a new phone after a couple of months.

So please don't boast about the maemo being a computer os, because the iphone's os has been powering macs for many years now. And that's what nokia called the n95, n96 and n97 as well, mini computers, or that is what they want to you to think it to be. Well the appropriate term is "smartphone". Who is nokia trying to fool? No phone will ever be as capable as laptops, ok, so stop it. The iphone is more realistic and practical. It's not a wannabe camera or a wannabe computer. It's simply a smartphone.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009I dont hate the phone I hate how most iphone users think. Lets call a spade a spade, if the ip... moreLol, and why would you hate us if we think that the iphone is the best? Why do you think we bought the iphone? Because for us it's the best. Power users? Lol. What powerful stuff do you do with your phone? Lol. Get a laptop my friend. It does more powerful things than any phone :) What we think should not affect you mister. I'm sure that you have your own best phone and I don't care because for me, the iphone is the best :)
"The iphone would not do what the omnia could do because it does not want to because as of the moment, it's impractical."
Impractical? Are you seriously that dense?

You made a choice and good for you if you are happy with the n95's 2.8 display with no touchscreen. Can your n95 learn to recognize touch on its screen? Never. Iphone users felt that the iphone was the best phone 2 yrs ago because for them, it is the best phone. Why do you think they bought it? And who said that the iphone is some god? I think it's just you. As you've said, it's only a phone. So let people choose what phone is best for them and respect their choice instead of you whining in here.

It's HD features? Lol. Sorry, but for people like me who own real hd cameras, with LED HDTV's at home, the omnia does not impress us a teeny weeny bit. We don't need it on our phones. For us, a slim phone with a stable OS, fluid UI, responsive touchscreen, thousands of apps, fast and stable web browser, and awesome music player, is what impresses us the most. The iphone would not do what the omnia could do because it does not want to because as of the moment, it's impractical.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009that just happen in ur company, other company is notUmmm hello, the iphone sold over 50,000,000 units already (in 3 yrs only). So I am sure that it is not just happening in his company.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009it is not about money, some people can easily buy ur entire family, don say cant aford iphone.... moreWell it's about choices as to which phone works the best for you. The iphone is far from being a low tech phone. You don't have to be an engineer to be able to tell that the iphone is a high tech device. Only a bitter hater like you would call it low tech. Unless of course you could show us a professional review, stating proofs that the iphone is indeed a low tech device. Or maybe you could explain to us technically why you think the iphone is a low tech device.

I can't believe some people can be so hatefully evil that they would go as far as making up stories just to pull down a device. Your desperation makes you look so dumb.

hey, i updated my iphone to the last version and now the music that i have sorted in playlists and that was sorted by album is now m ixed up. Can you help???
You must of heard all the buzz lately, about Nokia’s upcoming N900 Internet Tablet right? If not, you don’t know what you’re missing, as the phone is definately shaping up to be great device.
After seeing all the videos of the Nokia N900, as well as the first look at the stylish Maemo 5 interface, could the N900 step up to be a competitor to the iPhone? If you are not too bothered about the N900, then what about the Nokia X6? That has just been announced too and looks like a good option for those looking for an iPhone alternative coz it knocks spots of Kiddy phones
