[deleted post]relax mate, he was just predicting...there's nothing wrong with sharing a piece of his/her mind with us now is there? at least, he/she said something better than those iphone lovers! who come in here to talk about their beloved iphone, wonder why every time some brand brings out a phone its instantly compared with the iphone!...they just can't get over the fact that they got ripped off for a few somewhat necessary so called "apple" applications+so 2000 & late specifications...so when they see all these new features on other phones they start whining!
Nokia will make mini version of this phone (Nostradamus prediction).
they copied the panoramic desktop idea from android. the spin ur finger to zoom out is ok but y didnt they use a capacitive screen so it can handle multitouch an is more responsive? (no1 can convincingly argue that resistive is more sensitive to finger touch than capacitive and touching is the most important part of a touchscreen phone). i understand that nokia wants to also be able to use a stylus for certain markets (eg: asian) but they cud simply make 2 different versions or better yet use optical touchscreen which is so far (in my opinion) the best touchscreen technology used in a touchscreen phone (used in neonode now bankrupt) it is even more sensitive than capacitive (cos u dont even need to touch the screen but u can hover above the area u wna touch) and it recognizes everything that touches it (including styli) and since this technology has to be placed around the screen rather than inside it, it does not worsen the quality of the image being displayed like resistive does cos resistive uses several layers which can make colors appear more faded especially in sunlight.
all this apart i think its a v gud phone but there is always room for improvement.
HUMMER H2, 27 Aug 2009It can't be better than X2 Rachael or Satio Idou...this phone is so ugly and dose have nothing... moreare you serious man?don't you have eyes to see for yourself?first of all...SE Rachael is X3!NOT X2!X2 in comparison to N900 has nothing to show off!The real battle will be "Rachael" Xperia X3 vs N900 although they're a bit different.That i'd like to see.Both companies have a lot to offer..all we have to do is enjoy and spice up the competition!So, please...no more fanboys k?
Can't wait to get my hands on this one. The interface looks new, Maemo 5 looks strong & smooth..... Waiting for OCTOBER 09 & Nokia World next week.... 5800 killed the iphone, this will kill everything
Nokia, The king of the mobiles strikes back!!! and Nokia haters are now confused and running around in circles in a panick mode posting incoherent childish comments.
I bet a couple of you losers will commit suicide the day the phone is released. ha ha ha

THE BIG N is back!
I blew #1 and #2. Curse this fanboy wars. Even my name has fanboy written all over it.

Being a special side dedicated to Symbian, they would only attract one kind of audience. the geeky symbian user (or many other non-symbian user would call it fanboy).
The user interface is very nice. Nokia has added their own icons and the layout and positioning is nicely done. I am just glad that Nokia did not stick to their arm 369 MHz processor. A bit bulky but man i would love to have one of these bad boys.....

1. More and more people are having non-Nokia phones in their prof/sig
2. Omnia HD/Satio review at SF
3. Disturbing/intrusive "iphone rulez/symbian suckz" forum posts by mr. S.J's fanboys.
So, you see, fanboys of all kinds are everywhere.

It's only useful for browsing the web with Wifi. So, it's different. No one that looking for buying a phone will look for N800/N810, but they will look for N900.
So, your argument that N800/N810 only a cult device on a failed OS is NOT valid!!!
[deleted post]That because this is THE gsmarena where all phone manufacture got reviewed here, and each of those manufacture have the fanboy. ;)
If you wanna come a good site that only 1 side of the fanboy, you should go to symbian-freak or allaboutsymbian. There will be only a symbian fanboy there :)
On a sidenote,
this is fun, this is called arguing.
and with this arguing you will know why people buy certain device.
Good for marketing research

I owned a Nokia 5530 XpressMusic for a few days and while the screen was hard to see outside and it had some bugs (hence I returned it), it was very fast and usable. Hopefully Nokia will optimise the N900 before launch, else it will gain a poor reputation and remain a cult device, rather than a mass market one - like some of their earlier tablets.
