just got my n900 3 days ago. haven't been able to put it down since! haven't encountered any obvious bugs or crashes yet, and this baby is fast! the browser is amazing - i haven't needed to use my laptop since i got this phone. it truly is a computer in your pocket. i can't wait until more apps start to appear. i was worried about the no portrait mode thing, but surprisingly i don't really miss too much. the only place i do miss it is in "conversations" - would be nice to scroll through messages with one hand. but i presume that will come.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2010Yes right out of the box native Apps like iTunes, Safari and Mail are all open at once MULTITA... moreThe multitasking on the iphone is fairly limited - it's not true multitasking like it is on other devices (eg N900). To go from one app to another, you still have to go to the homescreen then pick which app/s you want to re-enter, which can be quite annoying if you have multiple screens of apps and you need to scroll through many screens. And the fact that you have to jailbreak the iphone to enable multitasking with 3rd party apps shows it's not truly multitasking. For power users, the iphone would be insufficient, but for most people the limited multitasking on the iphone is fine.

Anonymous, 21 Jan 2010Can you send a message one handed in portrait mode?can you watch videos via in browser or can you type in cold weathers with normal gloves on or file BT with out downlading other applications or the need to"jailbreak" your phone just to add basic and extra feature thar are standard on most phones

most of the people who bought this phone are dissapointed..they thought it would overcome the iphone but they are still wrong..they cant accept the fact that iphone 3gs is still better than this nokia n900..if iphone didnt been released then we would be stuck in the old lame phones that nokia produce..we should be thankful that iphone opened our eyes to the real touch technology..
deep space bar, 21 Jan 2010you don't understand iphone can not multitask ..........IT WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR IT developers ... moreYes right out of the box native Apps like iTunes, Safari and Mail are all open at once MULTITASKING.
It is third party Apps which are NOT ALLOWED by restrictions deliberately placed into the OS, by jailbreaking you can remove those restrictions and enable FULL MULTITASKING of third party Apps.
iPhone OS 4.0 should be announced on the 27th of the month, so it might become a moot point anyway.

i'm using my N900 right now and it's been multitasking as soon as i put the battery in and powered it on
and you do that with the iphone...... NO!! cause it wasn't designed to cause apple makes excuses for everything
hi guys, i am using n97 now,n very satisfied except phone memory only 73 mb,what about n900? i suggest nokia make big phone mem. capacity,am i right? by the way, when this damn phone to be sold in indonesia?
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010comparing iphone to N900 is really like comparing sony playstation 2 with a powerfull PC
PS2... moreWhen you say "no mutitasking" on the iPhone you are wrong.
It is fully capable of controlled multitasking limited to native Apps, when jailbroken it multitasks fine using the same hardware and a modified OS.
The hardware (CPU, RAM & Graphics) are almost identical between the N900 and the iPhone so again your comparison with the PS2 and a modern PC is also wrong.
You are making the basic mistake of underestimating just how powerful the iPhone 3GS actually is.
comparing to the standby modes of n97 and 5800xm, n900 saves more power on idle mode, (maybe because of the "power saver" option on display settings)

PS2 is good in what was designed for (mainly entertainment) but
b.)can not be compared to powerfull PC with its versality (which includes also entertainment)
the same applies to comparison betwen iphone and N900
iphone is a very nice and fashionable phone with some (limited) smartphone capabilities (i.e. no multitasking)
N900 is a pocketable PC - it really gives an experience of using PC (with the way OS is constructed and it's power) + you can have it allways close to you
so when you comare N900 to any other devic please remember that it is not (and never ment to be) a phone - it is a very pocketable PC with 100% PC-like operating system (linux)
The N900 does not support rSAP ( Remote SIM Access PRotocol) via Bluetooth.
So, it will NOT function with VW, Porch, Mercedes , Seat etc" ... !
Just be aware to this "small", but important fact.
Disappointing for me again. I really thought it would work as fast as iphone and the specifications r not that great shown on its site. but no1 can beat the iphone in touch screen i guess. not even bberry. neways all d best to all the others who r using this.
in support from my last post:
both devices (5800 and n900) has the minimum brightness display, back light time for 30 secs, all vibrations are off, volumes on video and music is 50% and take note, "this was not done on the same time."
nokian900, 20 Jan 2010this is an INTERNET TABLET... does it mean that it sucks as a mobile phone???? respond.. pleaa... morehello.
I bought N900 and it's not an internet tablet.
internet tablets were N770, N800 and N810 which were not phones. This one is a phone combining all the advantages of previous models as internet tablets.
It's absolutely fantastic and by far the best phone ever made !!!!!!!
i just bought this phone 2day :D .. i bought it for 580 $ in a lebanese market, i finally got a good replacement for my former beloved n95 8gb .. i still have alot to dig in my new phone, but so far from wut i got its pretty damn solid and im very satisfied with the purchase :D ... i highly recommend it for everyone
