Take note. You should install android OS or what we call "NITDROID" on your EXTERNAL memory not on internal...dont forget that =)
yes it is possible for you to return to your old OS w/c is maemo. all you need to do is restart the handset with slider open (keyboard shown) and then press and hold "U" key (i already forgot if that is the key XD ) it will direct you to a white screen where it will give you an option to boot on what OS you want. all you need to do is select maemo. if you want to use your Android OS just do the same steps and chose android. that is simply how its done..
But installing another OS is kinda risky so you must study it first and always back up your data to avoid potential loss =)
and also study first how to flash your n900 so if things go wrong. you already know what to do.

One of my friend has samsung wave 2 (8530) has installed android on his phone now he can use only android function on his phone , no orignal bada os functions.....are use more
@Dev and regarding to your battery life.. you said that your phone is already 14 months, maybe you really need to change your battery..just an advice, don't use your handset while charging..or you can use it but avoid heavy usage like net surfing, browsing, tethering, gaming etc. or you will just burn up your battery. this is not just for n900 phones but to all electronic gadgets actually.
@Dev yes there is a video call features on n900. just log in your skype account and add your friend's skype ID on your contact. You basically need a good internet connection to use video call.If you got a good connection try to call your friends skpye ID then there is actually a menu there that will activate your front cam..that is how you do video calling.
and regarding to your queries about installing Android OS.. yes it is possible but you will install it to your external mmc (8gig is the most avisable).. you can google on how to install it to your phone. so what will happen is basically you got 2 OS on your handset w/c maemo and android.

I dont care support from Nokia as long as we get support from Maemo community since i up grade my OS from Maemo community not from Nokia updater in Nokia Suite.
I will use N900 for next few years for my prime set and N8 for my second set.
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2012is it true that n900 has being phased outYes, my sugestion is buy now, since the price is very low, you can have its for USD 200-220 only for the best mobile hand set by Nokia for this time being.
If you're looking for quality games, application and other stuff on your n900, i suggest this site noeman.org. One of the sites that helps me a lot on my n900, just put n900 on their search box.. adding repositories on you n900 is also an advice tho you should take note and study first what you will install on your device coz like what ive said on my first post most on the apps of n900 are created by dev. It can harm or it can boost your handset to its maximum performance.
manu2784, 17 Jan 2012how can i install psp games or web os games on this device??Can you find those games? It is illegal to not pay for them... But if you can find them then all you have to do is use the: wgames application for web os games.
Just tried the lumia 800, well its all simple and good...but definitely not a phone for a hardcore N900 user. God I hate Nokia for discontinuing Maemo! I doubt I would ever change my N900 to any other phone! Been two years already!
AnonD-37184, 16 Jan 2012There is an application called: "mirror" or you could try an skype videophone call.how can i install psp games or web os games on this device??
I have Nokia N900 phone tho im not using it anymore. Let me say that this handset is one of the most or top Phone that i ever had..but sad to say that there's no more support to this Great handset..I consider this handset as a small computer with a phone's functionality rather than calling it "a phone" .. If ever Nokia doesnt turn his back on this i wonder how good will it be.. For me This Handset Kick Iphone 3gs straight to his ass if were talking about the overall specifications..but like what ive said the lack of support still make this handset the under dog.. e.g lack of Applications (1,000 vs 100,000)
But,Thnx to the mods who doesnt stop giving life to this awesome handset. So there is still lot of Great Applications out there to try for n900.
