To all the people out there that is considering to buy this phone, but is scared because of the negative reviews by others in this forum. Let me clear things up for you guys. First of all, I been using this phone for the past month or so. Before this phone, I had the Iphone 3gs and before that, I had the touch pro 2, the nokia n97, the samsung jet, the samsung omnia hd, the mytouch 3g, the blackberry 8900, the nokia e71, etc. All these phones in the past 12 months or less. I am not trying to show off or anything, I just want to show everyone that I am a phone lover and that I have USED all these phones before, so I feel I can qualify to compare and make opinions. UNLIKE those are have never even used these other phones, especially the Nokia N900, but they still have the nerve to make comments. bad comments. Neways, this is how I feel. I love the Iphone 3gs, I can download a shit load of games and apps and not pay a penny. Its very good to have when you are bored, it keeps you company. But I really need a keyboard because I text a lot. So, I sold that to get the N900. Also, the 3gs was too simple for me. Its good for girls. The touch pro 2 has a keyboard and its touchscreen like the N900, but its slower and it lags a lot more. My friend got one recently too, and he wants to sell it. He is complaining that it often lags. Plus, it only has a 3mp camera with NO flash. But it does have the best keyboard of all cell phones. Its spacious and 5 rows of keys. The nokia n97 is a beautiful phone, but its too laggy. Slow ass processor. Besides that, its a great phone. To save time, I am not going to get into the other phones. I figure I talk about the 2 more popular ones. In MY OPINION, not that I have to be right, but I feel that the Nokia N900 is arguably the best cell phone I have ever had. I probably had or used over 30-40 in my short life. I am 28 years old. The reason I feel this way is because it has everything I want in a phone. Its touchscreen with keyboard. The Iphone 3gs is an excellent phone, but its only touchsreen. I like the fact that the N900 has both sides of the world. The touchscreen, although resistive, is very responsive. I actually like resistive more than capacitive because you get to use a stylus. When I am looking at webpages, the stylus is more accurate to click on certain icons. On top of the excellent touchscreen, the N900 also has a very good keyboard. I know some people thinks its small, but I find it very good because the keys have a very good feel to it when you press on it. Even though the touch pro 2 keys are more spacious, they do not feel as good when pressed on as the N900. So, I only give it a slight edge over the N900. Its like 10 to 8. The N900 also has 32gb of storage built in. So, you can put in a lot of apps and movies and music. It has a 3.5mm audio jack, which the touch pro 2 does not. One more thing I have to mention is, the web surfing on this phone is amazing. NOTHING comes close. Its like using a desktop. I am dead serious on this. The flash and everything loads, fast too. So, I mean is the Nokia N900 the best phone out? well, that depends on who you ask I feel. If you do not care about touch screen, then maybe the Blackberry 9700 or Nokia E72 is the best option for you. If you want touchscreen, but do not care about keyboard, then the Iphone 3gs is definitely the best, with a few others coming in a close 2nd. But if you want both, touchscreen and keyboard, the Nokia N900 is definitely one of the best, if not the best. It has it all. Excellent touchscreen, good keyboard, 32gb storage, Very fast processor, good sound, a very good camera, especially during day time and the best web browser. I mean what more do you want? I mean I'm sure if nokia put a 8mp camera with xenon flash and HD quality video recording on this phone, it will cost like 100-200 bucks more. For the price, which is around 600, and for what it has, I feel the Nokia N900 is the one of the best phones out now. Definitely top 3.
Can you watch avi and divx movies on the n900? And can you watch avi and divx movies on your television through the nokia n900 connected to your television?
Walter, 04 Jan 2010I'm thinking of getting this phone in a few months, but from the things I read here I'm not su... moreDude....between N97 and N900 there is no question N900 is much better in all aspects. As far as battery life is concerned dont knw why is there so mch fuzz about it...with normal usage it will last 2 days like any other normal phones....so i would suggest n900 is da way !!
I'm thinking of getting this phone in a few months, but from the things I read here I'm not sure yet. I'm thinking between the N97 and this phone, the specs of the N900 just seem much nicer and better to me, but I hate it to have a short battery life. I'm not someone who keeps bluetooth on all day and browse on the web all day, so what is your opinion about it? Should I just get the N900 or should I go for the N97?

john, 01 Jan 2010to change your ring tone or message tone. just go to settings click on profile and click on to... moreI do wonder how some user of the same n900 claims that the phone is a class by itself and another user declares that this phone is a total waste of money .
Maybe this kind of communication should make the ones who spend priceless time to serf in the web , feel that they are some how educated by them who possibly know what they are claiming .
After what I have been reading here and else where , I am less able to decide if i should be thinking about changing to any other phone .It becomes just a waste of time . So , please , be serius and speak understandable if you may and if it is your intention to provide assistance to someone else in another part of the world, which is a really big thing to do .
it is availab le in bagladesh and it costs 48000tk same as the satio price and n97 is 46000 tk YYYY????

T-Mobile USA suppose to release N900 in february this year but I heard that, that maybe not`... moreI talked to a T-mobile USA representative back in november, asking if they were going to release the N900 (I'm gonna buy the N900 and switch from AT&T to T-mobile no matter what, even if I have to buy the N900 Unlocked from Nokia.com. But yes, it would be easier and cheaper if T-mobile was selling it), but the representative told me they were NOT planning on releasing the N900 for sure for the next 2 months (which send us back to mid-january. They're apparently not allowed to tell you further than 2 months).
So I'm gonna try to talk to a T-mobile USA representative again in the next few days to see if they plan to release the N900 soon or not.
I'll keep the answer posted here if I find out anything.
T-Mobile USA suppose to release N900 in february this year but I heard that, that maybe not`s gonna happened. Did someone know what is going on, or have some information.

Interesting Topic about the New Firmware for the Nokia N900:
CAN anybody tell me if there is an option within the contacts that allows the editing of field labels (like you can on the E90) ? I use that option and need to know if it available in the N900.
Also does the "in_device_search" work correctly? e.g search "text strings" within notes or notes in contacts?
