Robin, 19 Nov 2010The saddest part about the N900? I've owned for 5 months now, and I'm already starting to thin... moreto robin, rajesh, lenandes, demetrius, 0v0 and all others out there....
i have been looking at this phone since may or june as i hardly remember and from the first site it became my dream phone....:)
i researched and researched about it from wikipedia to maemo.org, from google to gsmarena and was very contented with this phone, in fact i knew many things that i even used to help out many people out there...
now the date has arrived when i am going to buy a new phone and that is tomorrow.
but now am confused weather i should buy this phone or not. i know its a great phone but i think its kind of outdated and also when i read the following article about android from a n900 user, i felt the same things that he has mentioned...here is the link to the article if you wanna read it...
i am now also looking forward towards samsung galaxy s i9000...
please guys help me out as which phone would you prefer..
@demetrius- i know n900 is a great device but the processor of galaxy is the fastest processor till date i.e. 1 ghz and also here is the comparison of gpu of n900 and galaxy
nokia n900 - SGX530 (14 MPolys/s, 500Mpx/s@200 MHz)
SGS - SGX540 (35 MPolys/s, 1Gpx/s@200 MHz, Max Memory Band (GB/s) 4.2GB/s) for handheld high end mobile, portable, MID, UMPC, consumer, and automotive devices
there is a lot of gpu difference, so which phone would you prefer....
@rajesh and lenandes---
galaxy s has 4 inch capacitive touch screen and that to super amoled with more than 100000 apps against 500 apps of nokia n900's maemo os....which phone would you prefer...
@robin---which of the phone has more value for money...
on the other side, nokia n900 has a fm transmitter(really cool for me)
usb otg with software called HEN would be very useful for me,
and actual keyboard, kick stand and also openness....
guys please help me and suggest a phone...
other options are also accepted....
i am only doing this because i have joined money for more than a year to buy a great phone and i wont be able to switch to a new phone for atleast 4 more years...
so made me really confused because 'is nokia n900 a long term phone compared to galaxy s or not'

The saddest part about the N900? I've owned for 5 months now, and I'm already starting to think it's outdated.
You have to appreciate marketing! This happens to me every couple of months, where I'm wooned into a new mobile device. Everything just gets better! Yet, we all want value for money, so we ask ourselves and others, am I spending my cash wisely when purchasing a specific device?
Answer is, by now, with thw different OS's out there, no device is perfect.
It takes so much research, just to make an informed decision.
This phone/tab, is awsome!!! I will NEVER rid myself of it. Exactly the reason I still own a 6680 and 5800. And also why I wish I'd never sold my 3300, 7230, 6600, N95, N91, N93 and recently, my N97. These are legends.
But I also own a BB9700 and next week, I get a SN Experia X10 Pro.
Since Nokia seems less interested in producing high spec phones, I'm beginning to lean stongly toward the opposition, which I hate to admit.
Once again Nokia, you've pulled a master stroke in developing such an awesome device, but it does not have the appeal of i-stuff or beebees!!!
We need more, we need you to look at what's happening in the market, and once again, conquer! N8? Good, but not nearly good enough!
If things keep spiralling the way they are, mark these words... "By 18 November 2011" Samsung will be the number 1 cellular manufacturer in the world, and that sucks!
Sorry to the guys looking for device info, just had to get that off my chest... I Love my N900...
If anyone wants to know, is this mobile worth forking out the cash, I'd say a big fat yes, as long as you're comfy having to use both hands most of the time.
can n900 be charged using the USB connect thru computer...?need some response...
sarah, 18 Nov 2010Finally i Bought it .. its so Dangerous .. !! I love it Yeah it is a very good device, and it can be dangerous when you use terminal ;)

Just to let you know. I think most people knows about this.
My only hiccough when i bought N900 from India was, i dont want put more 1500 RS for document viewer and editor. I downloaded easy debian, but open office was relatively slow with non optimized touch interface.
My all worries gone in a day; when I have installed abiword yesterday only. N900 optimized abiword is working like charm. Freoffice by koffice is not that well optimized.
I am using this Nokia N900 For the past 2 Months, amazing,web browsing is very fast,with a BSNL 2G sim .
