Some Sony Ericzn models has better sound, but thats all. Its nice with the keyboard, just start typing song or artist and it will pop up the results while u type. u dont have to go to "artists" to search for artists, and so on, as it is on most N-series, N900 searches everything right away.
And the FM transmitter brings a new dimension to music when you are for example in the car. The transmitter is weak even when using the boost, but good enough most of the time.
The included headset is the best nokia has included with any fone preceeding the N900, but that says more about how bad headsets Nokia is using than the audio quality of the N900 headset. Even the cheapest Sony earplugs will be a good upgrade.

hhhe, yes but it can onli eat them for breakfast, when the N900 is fresh from the charger. By lunchtime the N900 is already low batt and the androids got the whole afternoon and evening all by themselves =)

It's my suggession that if u would go for nokia n900, u will get the best of nokia. it's one of the best phones ever made by nokia. there are many games in it and its the best ever phone. i m using it from past 8 months.. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL.. Go for it..
miuru., 19 Dec 2010thanks for your comment dude.but in the gsmarena page is noted that it has 65k coloursI think it is 16M color screen, because images look very good on N900 screen, so I think 65k color screen couldn't produce such a nice quality view.
Hi friends..help me out..after lot of researching i have shortlisted two phones out of which i have to select 1..n900 and nokia n8..Nokia n900 is very very fast maemo OS as compared to nokia n8 which runs on symbian and is not that fast...everything's ok with me except one thing that n900 does not support java ...i.e jar files wont be supported means u don't have much option regarding games and many other things..is it so..one more thing i would like to ask is that how good is it's sound quality..?
Pls guys i'll love to know about the music quality of this device.Is it great and groovy?your response will be welcomed tanx.

Thanks Hardik for ur reply. u r absolutely right that i m using WH-701 (which comes with 5800 express music). The application naming "headphone deamon" claims that it can make any handsfree work with n900. plz help...

Which wired handsfree model are you refering?
The one which comes with teh N900 sales package is WH-205 & its not having music control keys.. Its just having call answering button on it.
Another one is WH-701, the one which comes with N97 or N97Mini with call answering as well as music control (volume, next, previous,rewind, forward)keys. But as we both know, this handsfree is not supported by N900 although the hardware of the tablet is capable to do so..
My WH-205 is working perfectly fine & i am able to listen music as well as answer the incoming calls without any additional handsfree plugin installed on it..
Please elaborate your problem in more detail so that we can discuss it & search the solution for it further.. :)

I agree with you wholly and thats why i have a nokia e73 close by. for the great battery life and the wonderful navigation experience. U are right I dont use the N900 for navigation at all. also, i have 2 garmins for road travel anyway. Again though, I agree with you whole heartedly and the N900 is definitley not better "phone wise" than the G2/Desire Z, but as a gadget it does plenty more
sly, 06 Jan 2011outdated??? you people need to stop the madness! its the best out there and other devices ar... morei also hate android and the socalled "free apps". But Htc Desire Z is still a better fone than N900. Coz N900 is not a fone, its an internet tablet/pocket computer, with a simple fone app added. Its still the best for internet but Froyo is giving me flash support, Android has become "good enough".
I can live with Android instead of the N900, its good to not always have to plan ahead to not run out of battery, and it good with bigger and better screen, and not to mention navigation, you have to admit that Ovi Maps for maemo is so slow that its not practically usable. Zooming and panning takes forever, this is insanely much better on my HTC, so smoooth and fast, i can easily drive and zoom pan at the same time, i cudnt even stop and do that on the N900, wasting time in fighting a virtually unresponsive app? Even S40 Nokias with GPS are by far superior.
It was easy to forgive N900's shortcomings when there was no alternatives that had full flash support, but that is no longer the case, so now it has tunred around, its now easy to forgive androids pushiness to make money for google. I need battery time and working maps also, i guess im not like you who love to go around and show off that Maemo5 is the best OS. It is best, yes, but i dont feel the need to go door to door like a jehovas witness to convince everyone that its best.
