I personally find the menu key a bit stiff to use so I've placed a menu shortcut on the home screen instead. Use that if there is a problem with ur menu key and if you cant get it fixed. Cheers.
nari, 29 Mar 2011except the 32gb of internal mem in nokia n900,you can find everything in C7.you will completel... moreOk, my turn since I have a C7 AND an N900..
First off, if ur looking for a regular phone, the N900 is not it. Its an Internet tablet, which can do calls. Its bulky and heavy (181 grams compared to the 139 of the C7). It very much has GPS, and many GPS apps that work very well, but OVI maps does not have voice navigation. Only the main menus dont rotate in portrait mode (that can be changed with a mod) but most apps including the browser and dialler do.
Where the N900 beats the C7 is its great web browser (its the only 'phone' I do web banking on), great skype and voip integration..you have to see that to know what I mean, its fantastic customizability which even beats android and some others like the better still cam,fantastic multi tasking, the great keyboard and screen and some really unique apps.
Where the C7 beats it is in size, better touch screen, more apps and support (Maemo has a community supporting it but not Nokia, they've even released custom kernels).
To conclude, the N900 is a great device but not for everyone.I use it for everything except as my primary phone (I'm writing this on my N900). You can look at its spec sheet and be floored, and I have yet to meet a single person who owns the device and doesn't love it, but if ur after a regular phone and ur not much into experimenting or tech stuff, stick to a 'mainstream' phone like the C7.The N900 is a breakthrough device of which there will be no more.

hmmm i suggest you restart t phone once 2days,,

Android is far better than Symbian because in Symbian there is few applications to download from app. store and many of them are not free. Yes, it has got good battery power. So make your choice.
Saks, 28 Mar 2011Hi, Im planning to buy a new mobile..! My choice is C7 or HTC Desire Z.! these are two mobi... moreWell, you are looking for 2 apsolutly different models. HTC Desire Z is qwerty phone but C7 is not. At the other C7 has symbian^3 platform and Desire Z has Android. C7 has MUCH better quality. It's made of aluminium, it's slim but the other way it's heavy. The C7 has much better camera although it has no AF. At the end the processors used in both phones are at the similar speed, but remember that Android OS is based on Java which require much better processor and much more speed and RAM. I got my C7 one month ago and I'm satisfied with it. No bugs, excellent design, speedy, great call voice.
