If someone needs N900 user guide look here:
ben, 03 Dec 2009come on 600 MHz? no way,another slow phone from nokia,im stuck between milestone,iphone and sa... moreThe N900 has a faster CPU than the Milestone and a more powerful CPU than any WinMo device to date (including ALL Omnias).
OMAP >>> Anything else (as stated previously)
Heck, a 600 MHz OMAP might even EQUAL a 1,5 GHz Snapdragon!!!
smee, 03 Dec 2009Well vinny, it _is_ silly for Nokia to invest all this money and time on N900 only to be throw... moreall good points ;)
but that is also why apple is stuck with its design for the iphone: if they want the new OS they release every year being able to work and downloaded (for money...) by the customers, they need to keep the same hardware (except the CPU).
On another hand you're totally right, that's also gonna be the problem with maemo 6. If nokia releases it on let's say a capacitive screen with no physical keyboard, I don't really think it will work with the N900. Which would make the N900 useless in comparison of its new brother running maemo 6.
But that will more likely happen in more than a year, which is (let's be honest here) usually more than what a "geek's phone life expectation" is.
But only time will tell.
Until then, I agree with you: let's hope a great success for maemo 5 and the N900!
It would have been better, had they improved the hsdpa & hasupa performance on this. on top of this - real player would be an added advantage. no mms support in any tuch screen phones...why?
no pbx support.
e75 has better blue tooth prorocol support, but just 3.2 MP Camera and again hasdpa & hsupa is not very good. also, video calls not supoported in n900.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2009It's also got a 2mm pin charger, that means it won't comply with the upcoming European micro U... moreLoL, I can't stop laughing...
U still claimint to work in a GSM store & can't tell a mic hole from a charger hole?
P.S. do you still think batteries are made out of plastic?
Any update on the Video calling and MMS feature?
I know that Nokia is gonna or has already released the potrait mode feature!
I have seen that many of you are frightened from the release of MAEMO6. Come on!!! Nokia will do the same as they did for E63 when it was released. They removed some features from E71 and said it is a new model!!!
WHO agrees with me?

vinny, 03 Dec 2009I understand your point here ;)
but I think like OvO: nokia said they were getting started on... moreWell vinny, it _is_ silly for Nokia to invest all this money and time on N900 only to be thrown to the back in less than one year and have the platform totally updated before milking all money possible. It does not make any business sense. But I am sure Nokia has business strategies that are not out in the open in order to make profit and be ahead of the competition.
In terms of updates, I wish they would just say that maemo 6 is also planned for the N900 (officially), even tho 0v0's reasoning is very valid and it will take 11+ months to actually arrive with the Maemo 6 handset. But, compare this to apple's iphone, although I hate the business model and strategies of apple to the core, but even the first iphone can be upgraded to OS 3.x (for money, yeah, milk more money apple, will you) but the fact is it's still relevant, you find applications for it, it's supported and will be for a long while.
I want the N900 to be a huge success but you can't say it is before it's out yet ;) I hope Nokia makes many competitions for Maemo developers like google and apple does, this brings more people to develop applications for it. Also I hope Nokia makes the OVI store as successful and useful as app store because that makes more people interested in the platform, which from my point of view is far superior to apple's closed platform or android's chaotic (in terms of backward compatibility) platform.
i have my n900 now and i am blown away by it. i'm still customising it now, nearly a week later, much like you do when you get a new PC. i'm getting the SDK to port a few important apps (admittedly command line) to it.
with regard to the speed of it; anybody claiming that 600Mhz is slow clearly has very little idea of the capabilities of it are. this isn't just a 600Mhz ARM chip, it's an OMAP3430. if you don't understand how powerful it is after looking at the specs on Texas Instruments' website, then there's no point arguing about clock speed. in that case, my advice is to find one (if you can) and have a play with it. i have never seen a web browser like this on a phone before; it's essentially like having firefox (yeah, i know; it isn't *quite* firefox). there's the odd 'dead tap' on the interface but the screen is sensitive enough and i can't decide whether or not the interface has been softened a bit to avoid being 'too sensitive', if this makes sense.. more importantly, the screen is incredibly accurate and registers tiny clicks on links in web pages that you just can't get on a capacitative.
battery life is very variable, depending on what you're doing and how you're connecting.
as said in a review on this site already, this is most definitely not a phone for everyone. one thing this it is, though; it's the phone i've been looking for for the last 12 months.

ian, 03 Dec 2009been waiting for this device but for the meantime got myself a blackberry & its coolohhh...:)
i feel for you...( difficult to wait..))
well, i am 100% sure, by this month the N900 will be officially in retailers shop,,
i waited almost 3 months, waiting for more 1 month will be fine...heheheheh
Also, in addition to what talked,,,,
Nokia planed about the N900(Maemo 5) since January 2009,,and till now we still didn't get the N900, it going to be available in retailer shops by this month or next month ( don't know about other countries.)
So, if there is a plan for Maemo6, so just calculate as following:
-planning period=3 months
-pre-release period=3 months
-pre-order= 2 months
-finally, officially in retailer shops= 3 months
Approx. 11 months, it will follow the same sequence as N900.
