Maemo or Symbian, if it has that Nokia touch it all look the same. If you'll going to ask any N97 user/owner right now, i think they're ready to ditch their N97 for N900. Wanna bet?
if someone doesn't like what nokia has to offer with this phone than i've got 3 words for u, "don't buy it!" BUT stop complaining about each & every phone that comes out...cause even WE are not perfect, when we are to be the best creation by the Creator & phones are just a mere creation of us human beings. so, don't expect everything from 1 phone...a little bit of this & that sets us apart from each other...the same applies to phones...peace!

i'm getting this phone period, one of the best phones to come out in a while
Why in the name easy living would anyone want multi-touch zooming? It's ridiculous! You actually need to use both hand when multi-touch zoom which is mot innovative at all. The circle zooming in the N900 you can do with one hand, I use to have that same circle motion zoom in HTC Touch Cruise, it was very comfortable.
Soul, 28 Aug 2009Nokia needs to make a non QWERTY variant of the N900, a lot of people don`t want a WERTY phone... moreThese apps are for an older version, not all of them would work on this device. But hey it's just a few months after the release and the Maemo Select would be full of apps, useful apps :D

This is a nice way to kill the N97, way to go Nokia. And i bet people who bought the N97 shouts in unison, like...BUMMER! LOL!

But my thoughts are that Symbian will be for less high-end phones, while Maemo will be the one for upper smartphones.

symbian is dead, is slow, freezing and nokia with other os can make a storm so please nokia remove symbian
Now this is something we r expecting from Nokia.it will be a blast.&
off course it will be an artistic one.With the hand of Nokia,We want to feel the true power of technology
Soul, 28 Aug 2009Nokia needs to make a non QWERTY variant of the N900, a lot of people don`t want a WERTY phone... moreLol. I can clearly see when Nokia announces Maemo phone without qwerty: "Nokia is copying gayPhone, where is the innovation" shouts.
I think that this is a few months too late. They should have sold this to compete with the iphone.
I fully expect Apple to copy a few features of this device in their next release of iphone.
And people complain about Nokia not being innovative anymore. *rolls eyes*
honestly, i don care about the multi-touch... i rarely use the pinching thing on my ipod touch - it's just too awkward for me. I thought the circular motion zoom is very innovative.
