Bought the N900 before a week. I have updated the MAEMO to the latest release. to be honest, the handset is a new great experience.
fast, clear, solid, awesome multitasking method, smooth browser, good camera, excellent voip calls and GUI, easy shortcuts and 0 problems so far.
I was worried from the landscape mode, but I was proved wrong as it is way much better to use this way (at least for me).
the battery lasts for a day or less when being used normally. besides that, it is perfect and knocks out other phones.
Many applications are launched and more are yet to come.
way to go Nokia.
its very coool set i fell in love with it, i have sold my iphone after buying n900 it works fast and it have very strong processor ,many new feature i.e online skype ,im, maps ,sms converstaion .etc etc
my opinion is GO FOR IT

gabby131, 27 Jan 2010i can only use the device at maximum every weekends, wi-fi with widgets and chat on social net... moresame here....only on weekends i use the features like wifi / gps....otherwise its just bluetooth pairing with my car kit, alls for like an hour or so, then sms about 10-20, browsing important things for like 10-15 mins...
I don't get it.. are we really talking about n900 battery issue cos unlike all other smart phones i know the battery of nokia phones is replaceble and sometimes interchangeable, keep two batteries!!!!
So looking at the details of the newly anounced Apple IPad. Nokia has absolutely nothing to worry about. N900 rules!
.what a total waste of money..battery doesnt last that long..made out of plastic materials..bulky and heavy not suited for your pocket..doesnt have a lot of applications to go with, and not updatable to maemo 6..what a crap..nokia is just trying to imitate the itunes of apple,but they suck really bad..

Just wondering about the lock screen - what alerts does it show? Does it show new text messages, and if so does it have a preview of new texts (ie where you can see sender, time and first few lines of message)? Also does it have push email? Thanks

Try saving the theme, etc you want to use to mass memory and see if it still happens.
