Shakil, 17 May 2010Which one is better Nokia N900 or N8??It's the same, just different OS!
N8 is phone-computer, and
N900 is computer with phone!
If you like complicated phone with Linux go for N900, and
if you like funny and more simpler phone go for N8 or other!!!
Why should this phone of all phones not have stereo speakers.I'm disappointed but I'll still buy it.
nokia 5800 user, 17 May 2010I had nokia n73 and it still alive! i had used it more than THREE YEARS! my next phone always ... moreI am using N72 for 4 years it still do its job quite good. Nothing comes near Nokia
Shahzad, 16 May 2010If now only Nokia allows to install also Maemo/Meego on it, will make of it a killing deviceAlas !!!
Anonymous, 17 May 2010s60v5 is compactible with s60v3. I have N5800 and i know. Also symbian^3 will support s60v5 appsS60v3 apps are compatible with S50v5 N97 and N95? Yes, that must be why I can download things like DivX player for the N95 from DivX labs and it won't work, or the way the original sports tracker, won't work, or countless other apps, won't work, because they're NOT DESIGNED FOR TOUCH SCREEN.
Have you managed to get Google Mobile working on your 5800/N97 so that it doesn't report that the phone is incompatible?
KID, 17 May 2010cant agree with you mate, cause this device is using a new Symbian OS (Symbian^3), specificall... moreI wish I could have your optimism re Symbian^3 being designed for TouchScreen. Everything looks pretty much the same to me but with a face lift. Im sure its had a lot of work under the scenes, but... eh, Im still waiting to see some videos of the messaging interface!
when n8 become 2 our country (malaysia)???
n do u think how about the price,dudes..tq
with the good price and spec list this powerfull the n8 will sell as much as 5800 and be a top seller,,i would put this in for smartphone of the year.
nokia 5800 user, 17 May 2010I had nokia n73 and it still alive! i had used it more than THREE YEARS! my next phone always ... moreI have e70 for many years. It fell many times on asphalt or concrete and never failed. It just works.
come on consumer must stick together so that manufacture produce a better n quality smartphone. each OS have its own pros and cons. Live with ur OS, U hv ur best OS why u want to bash other OS saying it is old,buggy,bla bla bla... no manufacture force to to buy their smartsphone. Ok sometimes thay do make a hype about their OS to lure consumer but its not forcing. Sharing is caring... arguing is not caring. We can hv multi OS living peace and harmony in this world. PEACE.
Anonymous, 17 May 2010I can also mention that ppl use their N900 as servers, running Apache and PHP. And, want the m... moresometimes the free stuff is simpler and works better,,open office org,,gimp etc do the job and as you say its free...These developers are out there to prove that software should be free and free equivalents are just as effective as paid for stuff..I remember gimp coming out and it was very basic but the proof was there that writers were prepared to imitate paid for software and give it away..
Have not tried n900 i think it maybe a bit out of my league but if i can pick up a cheap one second hand id give it a go..
I am using pr1.2 firmware and it good but i think meego os will be very good for nokia n900 in my option.
No other smartphone or mobile computer (internet tablet) as phone feature.
the nokia n900 is in a league of it's own.
I can also mention that ppl use their N900 as servers, running Apache and PHP. And, want the most advanced photo editor on a handheld device ever? Compare the free GIMP of N900 to any overpriced photo editior on any other device, and try to run a full Office suite on any other device, and on top of it all, for free? And this is supposed to be bad stuff?
Anonymous, 17 May 2010Some powerful hardware on this phone, but I am sorry but Symbian is the poorest of all the tou... moreSo whats your problem with Maemo 5? I think the only problem is that you never tried it. Look at what N900 can do, and then tell me any other phone that comes close? N900 does not have any real competition, WinMo cant run those "full version" complex programs that was written for real PC, its not even compatible with Windows, while Maemo/Easy Debian on N900 can run pretty much anything that Debian has compiled for ARM processors. One of a kind.. But ok, too advanced for regular users for some reason, Meego will fix that pretty soon, but i do have to question peoples IQ if they cant use an N900...
N8 should be easily available in market & 12 mega pixel means you can bring person who is far away from you with clear picture their shouldnt be blurr if you zoom completely...
