Don’t forget about the Nokia N900! Word on the net (the Meego blog to be specific) is that PR 1.3 update is coming soon and that you’ll be able to dual boot between Maemo and Meego. The last update, PR 1.2 was released last May. Do you still have your Nokia N900?
On the Maemo side, there have been interesting, supporting developments going on, as well. The PR 1.3 update is quite close now, and with that you can easily dual boot between Maemo and Meego on your N900. There is also a possibility of developing applications supporting both operating systems, based on Qt and Qt Mobility APIs on the Maemo side. It means that you can develop once in PC with Qt Creator, and test your applications on both Maemo and MeeGo, directly on your N900 device!
This is exciting news since a lot of Nokia fans are looking forward to the new Meego OS. We also love getting firmware updates on our devices, so Maemo fans are going to be happy. Dual booting different OS sounds great too. That means we can change the user experience if we don’t like one of them. We’ll keep our eyes open for updates on this development

You can flash your phone with global firmware.
One problem is if you bought the phone in India, your warrenty may turn void. Apart from that, you should have no problem flashing your device unless you dont know how to flash it. Go thru maemo.org for info on how you can flash the phone. Do some research before jumping in. All the best..

Praneeth, 13 Oct 2010Thanks Kolos. But can a new handset be flashed immediately after the purchase?@Praneeth
Yes it can.
You can flash with the global firmware and if you don't like it you can flash back to the indian without harm.
Another guide how-to flash:
My suggestion is don't buy touch gadget with "RESISTIVE" touch screen. Its performance is very contrast compared with "CAPICATIVE" touch screen.
I have experienced on my Nokia N97 mini, and it was suck at all..
richow167, 08 Oct 2010hey nokia n900 fans, i have a question and i really need help with my phone..sometimes when us... moreIt happened to me yesterday. I updated my map from ovi which had 161MB capacity and my phone started showing pup-up msge: 'memory full. Delete some data before you can send or recieve data.' I discovered that my music and video files could no longer show on my media folder. I checked my mass memory and I still had over 22GB memory AVAILLABLE. But the availlable memory for my application was below 50MB. I uninstalled a few application that were not useful and my phone became whole again. The pop-up text stopped.
"Pls help here with the query...i m in india. can i reflash the nokia n900 with global settings (RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin) since in india there is no skype integrated. Will it be a problem or i can go ahead with it? Also if i do the same, will skype be working as how it is internationally?"
PLz answer this question any1, I also want the reply for it.. I m also planning to do the same..
kolos, 13 Oct 2010Praneeth, try it, you have nothing to lose. Also you can always reflash back to the Indian version.Thanks Kolos. But can a new handset be flashed immediately after the purchase?
