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?

I want advanced call manager software in build on set, is this possible or not?
htc touch pro 2 is to slow compare to n900.I have both phones htc look is great but the feel is real bad.N900 is the way.
Check out http://maemo.org/ for Maemo 5 apps.
Even though very less but useful apps.
Also number of downloads for each apps is interesting...
capactive, xenon flash, leica lense, optical zoom should be added in the successor of n900
had my htc hd2 for 2 weeks now, bought it from clove.co.uk cost me 750 dollars and sold it out for 500 dollars yesterday. htc hd2 is a awesome phone but im a heavy texter so i sold it out. thinking buying this phone or the nokia e72, but this phone still new and we have to wait for more 3rd party software
Been using N900 for about a week or so and I am completely sold. Phone is brilliant and I think none of reviews do it justice. The platform is potentially the best right now. The only thing it lacks is vast number of applications. Which is just a matter of time.
One disappointment is the battery life. It's not great! Expect just under a day on full usage.
Other than that things is are promising. OS is able to do multitasking nicely. I tried testing version of OpenArena FPS game and it runs nice and smooth. TV out is great with video and audio quite good. Keyboard is pretty good as well.
Just waiting for the portrait mode. Not that it's a biggie even though I was concerned about this lack of feature before I bought the phone. You can use phone in portrait mode which is pretty useful. For other apps landscape makes perfect sense.
Last but not the least the browser. It just works as you expect. Flash player is laggy at times but it's a lot better than my Lenovo netbook so no complaints.
Integrated skype is very useful. You don't realise it unless you actually use it. And better still, you can find plugins in testing repository to use yahoo and msn in the same way as skype.
Applications: Several available in official repository. Add extra-repo and you get several more. Add testing and you get a lot more. Just add testing if you know what you're doing.
what do you guys think, are these reliable websites to order?
