n86 user, 15 Feb 2010Im using the n86 now and I plan on upgrading to the n900. I don't mind using the new Maemo OS(... morethe learning curve is not that steep if you are moving from a smartphonde esp symbian.
i have always used symbian smartphone and this is my 6th smartphone so for me the learning curve wasn't that steep. i just spent 12 hours on a straight to install some apps and personalize it to my use and that was it. it was easy as anything. but if you're moving from a impx cam then you're going to miss that a lot. and also the filesystem of maemo is really a pain. and the music player sometimes gives you such a headache that you feel that you will smash the set in wall. no equalizer, really complea way of making playlist, i still couldn't find a way to repeat one song only via the default media player. but the music quality is really great. the best from nokia. and the headphones eventhough extremely cheap looking; does a very good job of noise cancellation. please read one of my previous post about the difficulties you may face if you're using n900 on a daily basis(on the previous page i guess). i moved on from e75 though both share same form factor but still it's not at all same.
Smart phone of the year 2010
1st place goes to the HTC HD2
2nd place goes to the N900
Anyone with knowledge and experience of both, care to comment on this?
Oh and if you have any questions about either one or anything you would like me to compare just leave a comment on here and I will try to get it done.
I got bought a Droid 2 days ago for verizon in the united states and i also have my N900 on t-mobile for my other line. I have been using the Droid for most of the weekend and I felt myself going back to my N900 quite often. Every website I tried to open in the Droid always goes to the mobile version. Is it supposed to be like that? lol anyways in my opinion the Droid/Milestone does not come anywhere close to the N900.
miki, 15 Feb 2010Hi all, can any one tell me that why it do not support MMS? have anyone tried this?actually, it has MMS, you just need to install an app from the app manager

How easy is it to connect the N900 to outlook on an exchange server?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970well based on your question i will definitely prescribe you the pixon. (cause you don't even know the difference between smart and feature phones)
well i'm not saying that it's your fault or anything because not everyone is keen about cellphones.
judging by that i would recommend you pixon. because n900 can be too complicated for you.
deco, 15 Feb 2010thanks zaheed,
what is the difference between 2g and 3g ? and which one is better?well 2g is 2nd generation connectivity which has Edge and Gprs.
3g is 3rd generation connectivity which has Hspa (Hsdpa and Hsupa)
definitely 3g is better and faster but it drains more battery. it depends upon your country and provider if it has 3g or 2g.

It's a great great phone i may say. 10 star for it! the only thing that i dont like bout this phone is the size. it is just too big for my pocket. overall, it's fantastic!
thordendal, 15 Feb 2010does this have youtube?.. can you also play farmville?.. you can't play farmville on the Nokia N97it has youtube right out of the box since it displays site in full html and supports flash in browser since it has flash 9.4 and will be getting an update for 10.1 i believe
everthing you see on this phone when your using the net is how you see it on your browser on a desktop or laptop
thordendal, 15 Feb 2010does this have youtube?.. can you also play farmville?.. you can't play farmville on the Nokia N97yes it has full youtube and it plays farmville. go and search some youtube videos and you'll find it.

1. No device at this point in time can host a USB device
2. Not the device for you then, get something else.
3. How big is your pocket?
