Thanks for the responses about GPS. 2-5 minutes to find your location isn't too bad, though I imagine with will improve with updates.

canondragon, 05 Feb 2010Can N900 make a video call? Are all the apps opearate in landscape mode??Not all apps are in landscape mode although over 90% of them are...it really isn't as bad as I had first imagined it would be. I also here more portrait mode support is in the works.
canondragon, 05 Feb 2010Can N900 make a video call? Are all the apps opearate in landscape mode??Yes the N900 can make video calls including skype video calls using its secondary camera which, unfortunately is still very fuzzy right now.
Billy, 05 Feb 2010Just have a question about the GPS - how well does it work in general? How does it work with A... moreI actually have not used GPS as I currently do not have a data plan so I could not tell you (I'm also unfamiliar with GPS in general). I can tell you however that the built in maps system is quite responsive and user friendly although it can not save locations.

Can N900 make a video call? Are all the apps opearate in landscape mode??
N900 not a big flop in the uk just come out on t-mob and o2 and still av on voda!

How does it work with AGPS disabled? Approximately how long does it take to find your location without AGPS? Thanks.
N900owner, 05 Feb 2010The N900 is very well built with a solid OS. I have not had any glitches other than a few ins... moreThanks for that. Doesn't sound too bad IMHO, certainly not deal-breakers for me. I think occasional crashes/frozen screens are to be expected from any phone. Maemo 5 is still one generation away from completion, so it's only natural that Nokia haven't ironed out all the wrinkles yet. But as long as it's reliable and stable as a whole, I don't mind a couple of minor inconveniences or bugs. Will be ordering my N900 from Amazon next week. Can't wait!
Billy, 05 Feb 2010Hi, what software issues exactly are you talking about? I'm thinking of getting this, so just ... moreThe N900 is very well built with a solid OS. I have not had any glitches other than a few instances where the new firefox 1.0 browser crashed or a game I downloaded froze. Small bugs I've faced include resetting of the theme to the default every time the system is rebooted and I had some trouble getting album artwork to show up for some music files. Another annoyance is the inability to use the volume rocker when the phone is in sleep mode in your pocket, and the browser window needs to be minimized in order to control the volume of a flash video because the rocker controls zooming when the browser is in focus. The secondary camera is also pretty fuzzy at the moment. Thats about it for now, can't wait for firmware updates.
alex, 05 Feb 2010Hi guys, I'm looking to buy this phone, but I want to ask about the battery power, did htc mag... moreI can't speak for the HTC Magic (have never used one), but I would put the N900's battery life somewhere on par with the iphone 3gs's. I haven't done any tests or anything, but my N900 lasts me a little over a day with moderate usage. I think that's pretty reasonable considering what this phone is able to do. Remember also that the iphone doesn't multitask (unless you jailbreak it) and the N900 does, so naturally it should eat up more battery. My brother who has the 3gs also needs to charge it daily with similar use to mine.
0v0, 05 Feb 2010Better to wait for the official release, cos the N900 now has a little bit of software issues,... moreHi, what software issues exactly are you talking about? I'm thinking of getting this, so just want to know exactly what software problems I may run into. I don't mind a bug or two if they are fairly minor (eg. my N97 had an alarm clock bug where the alarm would go off a couple of minutes after the time I set), as long as the phone as a whole is generally stable. From what I can read on this website about most N900 owners' experiences and other online users and critic reviews, this phone doesn't seem to have too many problems in terms of software bugs/instability. Of course some handsets may be defective (which is normal with any batch of products), but I don't get the impression that it's a high percentage of phones.
Hi, I've owned the N900 since late December 2009. The battery life is very respectable for such a powerhouse. I usually get anywhere from one and a half to three days out of one charge depending on my usage. Surprisingly it doesnt feel like playing video with onboard speakers uses a lot of power. It ran out of batteries with one day's worth of usage a few times but overall it has been very reliable. A huge upgrade from my power hungry N80.
N, 04 Feb 2010in Mumbai Nokia N900 is being sold without bill. i.e. without Guaranty n Warranty.
is it safe... moreBetter to wait for the official release, cos the N900 now has a little bit of software issues, and if you r going to buy it and if accidentally got stuck or died on you,, then WHAT to do without the warranty...!!!!!!
just wait for it till March 2010, and probably will be released then..
don't rush o spending your money then, throw it away easily.,,
