Emmanuel, 23 Jun 2010Hi grant i'm seriously looking for this phone, i'm in south africa. How did you get it:) i've ... moreHey Emmanuel, i got my unit from Cell C as they have it in stock, this is bar far the best phone i have ever had,still trying to get my MMS set up then it will be complete, i wanted a bold 9700 but this blows BB out of the water,browsing and everything is quick and skype works great, i can even watch the world cup games on my phone, you making no mistake getting this phone, be aware though you might lose a few friends because of jealousy,lol. enjoy.
I bought an n900 a few months and I live in San Francisco and subscribe to ATT. I made a mistake. This phone is not compatible with ATT 3G and only works on the the ATT Edge network (much slower). I was attrated to what I could do with photos, video, video streaming and the performance on a slower network makes all the wonderful features on a n900 horrible to use. I am a longtime Nokia user and believe they make wonderful products that are suited for me. However I am very dissapointed in the company and not advertising upfront that you cannot use ATT 3G. Nokia should say that on their site. I am giving the phone to my brother living in Greece because to me its worthless without 3G.
and the gsmarena site also shows as follows
* Large and heavy
* UI only works in landscape mode (for now)
* No video call capabilities, smart and voice dialing
* Outdated camera interface and features
* No preinstalled voice-guided SatNav application
* No voice recorder, no MMS, and no handwriting recognition
* No FM radio application (despite that the hardware's there)
* Limited third-party software availability
* Limited 3G support in the US (no AT&T)
i heard that nokia n900 does not support video calling facility. it has video calling facility over wifi or gprs through skype or other net based applications.. and does not support phone to phone 3G based video calling facility.
Nokia website also says "video calling facility will be announced later"...
Does the new version or the latest n900 has video calling facility?
Please someone who has the mobile advise me....
does this phone contain any application for microsoft office files ?
Demetrius, 23 Jun 2010You have to wake up sometime...you are focusing in the screen...tstststs time to wake up...Ohh i agree with you Demetrius, and i actually hate Samsung they are soo cheap and ridiculous, I remember when I once when to a soo called big event "Launch of Samsung Corby" here in Dubai, my god the whole even was soo badly organized and they served ever1 cold drinks and gave some real stupid speech, and gave some real shitty gifts to some sales reps, and finally all the ppl attending the even has to pay for there Dinner, believe me it was like an insult, A company that is not organized on basic stuff, I just cannot relay on there products.
I like Nokia and Sony Ericsson in that case ohh there events are somethings you would definitely not wanna miss trust me... :P
shiv, 23 Jun 2010boss where is the skype help me plz,,..Go to Settings-->
VoIP and IM Accounts--> Click on new
And you will be asked to enter in your user name and password and select Skype, once it says enabled, when ever you are connected to the WiFi / GPRS you will be online, and get your phone to download the latest update available you will also be able to make video calls
And best part I found out today was once you connect establish a skype, gtalk, etc connection it not only allows you to associate your contacts with IM users (Even there picture will keep changing as they upload a new pic once you merge the contact to the IM user), but also it saves the IM users birthday on your phone calender automatically,
I realized this when my calender has saved a birthday reminder of my colleague who i am not very close to but I am connected to him on skype I actually could not believe it but later i was sure because the sync type is shown as "Smart" that made me realized that it has obtained this information from some where.

Already it is official, next June 30 Nokia will launch Pre-Alpha version of MeeGo for Nokia N900. Though this one is not MeeGo‘s definitive version, already we’ll can see some features of the user’s interface and some of the most important MeeGo functions.
While we can see what can do a Pre-Alpha version of MeeGo on tablets, simply spectacular!.
