i only got 3 phrases to say:
Ew, Ew, Ew!
Well, for a start it has nice features but one thing that it really downs my interest in this phone is that the design is REALY FUGLY! Look at its d-pad. Its like a tin can sticked into another can. xD

Intel Pentium 3 800 MHz is nothing when you compare with Intel atom based processors at 600 mhz
This Texas industrial based processor using in PSP GO

If you hate it, then fine. Not everyone has the same taste as you.
How is the n900 that much better? 600 arm processor and 30 fps video is all i see the major difference. the biggest let down of the n900 is permanent landscape mode. It does not switch to portrait mode, only when making a phone call. now maemo does look fast and fluid i have to admit. But the dang thing is a little thick for me. Droid is pretty slim for a qwerty phone. 5 mp camera, flash, wifi, ad2p same for both. I actually would pick maemo over this but landscape mode only???!!?!? C'mon nokia get real.

Though technically very impressive the Droid looks a total mess. Is there any reason why they had to make top and bottom sides different sizes? Or use at least 4 different, non-matching, materials for the casing?
Do you think that a Lada with a vinyl roof and a 2-tone paintjob is an attractive looking car?
jjsoviet, 29 Oct 2009More features =/= better phone
Quality over quantity, my friend.N900 is still better overall.
Hopefully this won't cost more than $500 unlocked, because it really shouldn't.
