Saran, 28 Dec 2010I am impressed with performance ARM CORTEX A8 processor of N900.
I dont understand why nokia ... moreNokia didnt choose Arm11 over Cortex A8 because they wanted to, they had to maintain compatibility, Symbian doesnt handle modern processors too well. But read opinions here and for N8, the fanbois are happy with Arm11, most of them because lack of knowledge, and some coz they are die hard nokia fans and would forgive them if E7 had Arm9 at 200 MHz.
About compatibility, yes SE has used Cortex A8 in Symbian phones, but this is not the same. SE dont have to maintain Nokias compatibility and could use a modern processor. Nokia could also ofcors, but they chose higher compatibility over higher performance. Bad choice...
Dan, 28 Dec 2010Hmm looks a good phone allright but Nokia is making some mistakes:Symbian 3 is not all too goo... morei have to agree with you. No offense to Symbian worshippers, but they really dont know how good other OS' are, and then in particular Maemo5, its such a amazing OS, and N900 had "everything". Theres no doubt that N900 is still Nokias best unit, and that Symbian has nothing to put up against Maemo5.
32gig + card slot, FM transmitter, high res screen, decent processor, AF Cam/carl zeiss, everything that E7 is not. And USB-OTG? Yes, possible with N900.
However, even if Maemo5 is way better than Android, and N900 is the best Nokia, it doesnt mean N900 is the best phone. Its too old to compete with the newest android fones, the OS alone can no longer earn N900 the title as the best phone ever. Its too fat and bad battery, its easy to accept Androids limitations when facing the weak sides of N900.. =(
Wish Nokia had made an intermediate model with Maemo6 while waiting for MeeGo to mature enough to go into production models, fixing the flaws of N900 could have resulted in an amazing device (capacitive screen and better battery + slimmer). Letting Maemo sail its own sea and putting all the development resources into Symbian may turn out to be nokias biggest blunder when history is written.
Funny thing is when iphone lacked (and still is) so many things no one was complaining..but when any other phone lacks something...that phone is not big, but huge piece of crap... If E7 didn't have only one thing, something like fm transmitter or somethig ,I believe that opinions would be the same... oh,my god, no fm transmitter...oh,what a disappointment bla bla bla
Hmm looks a good phone allright but Nokia is making some mistakes:Symbian 3 is not all too good.
No card slot??
Low resolution for auch a big screen.
No carl zeiss and fixed focus?
With some little changes nokia could make a comeback and win over the market.Such as:
Using Maemo or Meego. I got n900 and maemo is the best os. my brother has android with HTC sense but i like maemo more for many reasons. I also saw meego and hell its a cool os. better than android or symbian. but with symbian, i think they are making a mistake.
also they can start making wvga resolution. at least on a 4 inch screen.
+ it wouldnt hurt much to put a card slot, carl zeiss and autofocus if they put them on lower end devices. I cont get nokia sometimes....
With some little but important improvements, nokia could make this phone the best on the market. It really would be the best with maemo or meego, a little better processor(prefarably ARM)/ram, card slot and autofucus/carl zeiss. For now N900 ftw.
Sent from Nokia N900 :D
in may nokia closed its flagship store in newyork'.a symbol of how the company gave up an important market almost without a fight,.these days nokia is viewed as a cheap brand in the united states
I am impressed with performance ARM CORTEX A8 processor of N900.
I dont understand why nokia dont use that processor for n8 or e7.
Already symbian phones have sooo many problems about operating speed, hangup problems, and nice ui.
It has got good design. But
1. Symbian cant compete with android or iOS
2. No card slot on high end device
3. fixed focus camera
4.Low resolution screen
need auto focus&superamoled externalmemory and dualspeakers from fajir tvpm(nokia c-7)
wht wud it do without a memory slot .. ?
loses on tht front.. damn essential as a backdoor when ur fone gets formatted ..
Its an amazing phone..... biggest drawback is no card slot. You have smart phone and all hightech feature and if no memory then what is the use?
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2010the last company that have their own OS, and use Windows already gone. I was a fan of Palm ... moreI don't know what to believe, but I know that the WP7 OS is NOT a cool looking OS, I hate it! Android is much better.
zamir, 27 Dec 2010is thiz a good phone?better than N8?Sure not,
if only if Nokia E7 has got Maemo 5
it would be better...
One Big mistake is "Symbian OS"
Nokia will die on Symbian disease
Nokia will resurrect only with Meego
and nothing else...
So for now, Nokia N900 Rocks
Full user manual of E7 just went online today and I guess its broad market availability should be around mid January 2011.
[deleted post]and the asking price is estimated around 700USD maximum, or 640EUR for what that`s worth :)
It so seems that the rating sistem isn`t so effective anymore; i`m just saying this after reading thru half the comments. I can only imagine that the voters are the same as the people that post comments. Now here is the thing: i`ve been using Nokia phones since 2210 I think, and went thru over 25 different models, all finnish, hungarian, german or romanian made. So,680Mhz is enough, the N97 is stable now thanks to the firmware upgrades, "no card slot" is a bold and good move, 16Gb is more than enough, Symbian is and will remain on Nokia phones for at least the next 3 years, doing nothig else but getting better, all the rumours about iPhone climbing up are just sales adverts; this phone, built as it is, deserves a 9 on all scales; I can easily predict it to rise at the level of the N95 by the end of 2011. Till then, all the best and stay healthy :)
