For those considering getting this phone or the E72, get the E72. I considered both. They both have the same processor speed (600MHZ) but what put me off the N900 was the battery. Nokia are reknown for battery beasts. The N900 has to charged daily in most cases twice daily. This was the same as the Nokia N96. My E72 is charged once every four days. YES FOUR DAYS. It has the same battery as the E71. The N900 battery is decent but the handset is to powerful for it. It is like using a tank battery for a plane. The plane will only fly for a short time rather than for hours on end and will need constant refueling. If they release the next version of this phone later in the year with a great battery, I will consider it. Get the E72. You will not regret it.

It's an exellent phone & while going out I don't want a laptop even. It's so easy and also work like our computer.You should buy dis.
im enjoying using this phone.. feels so upgraded from my previous e61i.
Being a cellular user who never used mms..I dnt care care abt its presence or absence either.
What matters most to Me is the portrait mode..I would love to see the N900 switchin from portrait to landscape mode in certain apps like the browser, main menu etc
But its not at all a hinder to Me using the N900 in landscape either :D as one of My previous phone was the CLASSIC NOKIA N-GAGE..so Im used to holding it dat way :D !!
excelent phone first phone to make me say wow in a while i get this in nokia chicago a month ago and since then i am more than happy with it.
except for one think the damn 3g frequency is different in mexico so thats kinda lame...
everything else is awesome

Breaking News, Qualcomm dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon Processor Launching 2010
When looking at a smartphone one major thing to look at is the processor , that’s why Qualcomm is releasing the dual-core Snapdragon, the 8X72, this cheap features two 1.5GHz Scorpion cores and will be capable of 1080p high definition video playback and also, I’m hoping that all of our problems will be solved by this chip. LOL
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2010Had the phone for a about a month and had to get rid of it. Nothing works, too many bugs, won'... moreAgree. They did the same thing for N97. Nokia seems to have lost it. They see what the competitors are doing yet they are not able to build on their strength to produce a product that does not have so many bugs. Unfortunately I have both these phones and that is why I am disappointed with Nokia.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2010over 90 percent of n900 users are satisfied with it
no major problem
great mobil.e lin... moreN900 has lots of issues.
a) Its power management is poor under 6 hours only without intensive use
b) It is not so responsive with respect to touch scrolling within apps.
c) The email program needs to be better. Takes a long time to download emails then refresh so that you can see them. There is no option for headings only.
d) When you receive an invitation on email for a meeting in the ical format it does not recognize to add to calendar.
e) No voice dialing
f) the keyboard first row of keys are close to the screen so MAY find difficult to type if you have longer finger nails
g) they have left out "Canada English" in the regional setting but have included "Canada French"
Basically the N900 is a work in progress that needs fixing and updating. There are not enough apps yet.
