Kalin, 17 Feb 2012i'll mostly use it for work, or games, or to chat with friends or listen to music.All phones are capable of sending instant messages and e-mails (I suppose you have a work that you need to check your emails). Also they are all capable of playing music. If you want to listen to radio stations then n9 has no radio receiver (although it has radio transmitter!), lumia 800 has receiver and n900 has both receiver & transmitter. As for games I can't help you. I know that you can play webos games in n900 and it comes with some pre-installed but I have no idea for the other two phones.
Lumia 800 comes with
- Document viewer/editor (that n900 has not by default but you can install later)
- Voice memo/command/dial
that n900 has not at all.
Finally, something that I like in my n900 is recaller application (more here: http://wiki.maemo.org/Recaller) that when talking for business can become handy and something that I don't like is that I need to charge it everyday, to be sure I won't run out of battery.
Oh, also have a look at SAR about the phones that you want.
You must know :
. Everything you see today, the "war" of technology, (single core,dual core,quad core...etc etc) is because this super mobile phone.
. When Nokia N900 arrived, nobody has this technology. Overclock to 1.15GHz ? 32GB internal memory? 1GB of RAM ? Things that even today are astonishing.
Nokia N900...the "war creator"...
hi. i cant see images of cssu for installation if viewed in my n900 browser. can somebody help?

N900 can do things the N9 cannot, especially when it comes to the browser, it may be old but still the most advanced webbrowser ever on a handheld, the Maemo browser is a full PC type browser and not some mobile version. Even Android with their full flash support is weak and incompatible when measured up against the Maemo browser.
And if thats not enough it can also run full version Iceweasel, making it the only handheld to support webpages with Java applets, thats 110% unique in the handheld world, N9 isnt even close, and Lumia is ment@lly ret@rded in comparison.
N900 is truly the best phone ever made.

I use 2 phone, N900 and N8, N900 is my prime mobile phone and N8 is 2nd mobile phone as my camera and music phone.
for me N900 tought screen is much more accurate and easy to use since N8 is too sensitive and easyer make mistake when we tought.

premji, 13 Feb 2012i tried , but in vainI suppose you already have an skype account. Created on a pc and you put that username and password in 'settings'->'voip and im'... If that fails maybe you write your password wrong. If all go ok then you should touch the time and see availability button, to connect yourself to skype servers and let others see you.

kalin Poter, 14 Feb 2012I'm about to buy new phone and i am wondering which phone is beter: the nokia n900, nokia lumi... moreThe Nokia N9 and Lumia 800 are much better than the Nokia N900. The Nokia N900 (this phone) is now very old, with old specifications. Also this phones touchscreen is using old-technology so will be hard to use.
Personally I would consider either the Nokia N9 or Lumia 800. The N9 doesn't have that much better specifications, but is far better than the N900. Personally the Lumia 800 is where Nokia want you to concentrate; it has several capabilities.
However, the Nokia N9 may soon get a port of Android. So it's totally your choice, either go for N9 or Lumia 800. :)
