Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010to those who consider to buy N900.. Its a good handset, but very outdated by now. I was surpri... morethe G2 alright but not what u make it out to be. Android phones are fast until u start downloading apps. Just wait a couple months and u will surely see lag in your device. Killing tasks are darn near impossible because when u kill one 3 show up running. Glad you are happy but i have been there and done that now on to top quality! No one builds phones like Nokia! HTC builds plastic toys that become obselete in 6 months. matter fact without a front facing cam and 1 ghz processor your phone is already outdated. U will get software updates but so what. I have an n900 and a mytouch 3g that runs 2.2. dont have 4g speed but wait til u want to tether. can u say $15 per month in the US. Android is not open as people think
I want everyone to know I have had my N900 for about 3 wks now and am in love with it. The battery life is the only thing that bothers me. I have had several smartphones from symbian to winmo to android. Alot of people jumping on the android bandwagon and thats the reason I jumped off. I was an early adopter and preordered a G1 a couple yrs ago. I remember being laughed at by everyone who saw it saying their phone looked better and does more. Especially iphone users. Now when I look around everyone who laughed now has an android device. I hate followers. My first smartphone was a Nokia 3350 or sumn like that which introduced video to the US back in 2003. I have been loving nokia phones since. I am a proud owner of the n900 and an E73. i know android like the back of my hand and feel it is a very nice os, but never seemed as eye catchy as the iphone and gaming sucks on it. Maemo 5 might be at the end but I have not looked back at android and dont plan too. My wife has the Vibrant which displays gorgeously but p,und for pound the N900 is the champ. Lastly, its hard to keep up with the latest greatest andrid because they put out so many devices every month. if u want sumn u can keep for a few yrs iphones and nokias never get old to me
[deleted post]to those who consider to buy N900.. Its a good handset, but very outdated by now. I was surprised how much faster my HTC Desire Z is, even if the processor is only 25% faster.
Wait for N9 if you really want Linux power (just be aware of the keyboard slammer, it sux). Do not get N900 unless you find a used one for a fairly low price. Online auctions in europe shows some very cheap N900 for sale, i even seen some who could not sell for starting price. N900 owners are realizing that its hard to sell so prices are going down still.
Bye bye N900. And bye bye Nokia.
I still like my N900, but after 2 days with HTC Desire Z i am sold. Almost everything is better, smoother and more responsive and overall it feels faster. For example, using maps/gps is a totally different experience on the Desire Z, it scrolls and zooms instantly. Browser has a few things that is not quite up to the N900 internet tablet heritage, and surely android has more limitations than real linux, and google's presence with their ads in android apps is a pain in the @ss for someone who is used to full linux freedom.
overall, a slimmer faster device with bigger and better screen, better keyboard and whatever, i cant resist it, so my N900 is being retired.
Why bye bye also to nokia? Why not wait for N9? Simple explanation, the N9's keyboard mechanism is same as N97, i cannot live with that, its too painful and looks too s2pid when it tilts up whit a big bang. If nokia releases a linux keyboard phone with a usable mechanism i will be back, but that will not happen before late 2012 i guess.

dragon boy, 28 Nov 2010hi all .. i'm going to get an N900 ... so can i update it from Meamo 5 to Symbien 3 ??? ... moreDude where the hell ru? Maemo is light years ahead of symbian 3. if ur looking for symbian go for N8. hope u get the message...
is this phone outdated now cuz the n9 came u gotta be kidding me right ? why the hell nokia is releasing so much phones and its like they release a successor version of the same model for every new phone they release . so that the people are wasting too much money on unsuccessful devices right ? and then again they have to collect money for the successful next device in case there device fails .
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010How to on FM Radio? Pls tell me.Dear user,
Please search the already posted opinions before posting new.. we have now almost 573 pages of openions available here..
I tell u how to do that..
Type "FM radio" in "search opinions" window & then click the button "search opinions" & U will find ur answer..
Try doing it for ur other queries also.. It's really helpful for U as u dont have to wait for others to answer ur query.. I have posted the same thing earlier also.. Please read my earlier post below:
I am Hardik from India & a new user for this beautiful little master piece. According to me, this device should be categorized as Tablet by Nokia due to its amazing power..
Since, I am new user, I did found some basic flows in the in built applications provided by Maemo 5. But after researching on net & moreover, navigating this site, I did found answers to basic querries such as :
(1) Contact Group Making through "crochick my contact application"
(2) Java enabling after installing IcedTea6
(3) FM Radio through FM radio application
(4) MMS activation through fMMS application..
But, I still have some doubts regarding the usage of above applications.. e.g
(1) When i used My contacts application, i was able to make concact group but was unable to find how to send SMS to that group. Also customization of the group such as image, ringtone etc. remains disabled. Can anyone tell me how to use this application??
(2) The FM radio works fine but only by turning bluetooth on.. Is this the hardware issue or the FM radio application issue?? When I turned the bluetooth off, the radio also shut off.. Please guide me if anyone knows anything abt this..
Overall, i loved this phone for its screen, video/audio quality, web browser & multi tasking capability. The Image quality (except zooming) also meets my expectations. I can't ask for more. I am sure there is much more to offer from Maemo team for this device. The more I dig, more i will find..
I also have one suggestion for the new users like me for posting their querries:
Before posting ur querries, just type ur querries in "search openion" window.. there are very gr8 & clever guys here who already have posted answers to such basic things.. i followed this method & found almost all the answers. Hope this method is useful to others as well..
Have a Gr8 Day.. :)
