I read maemo can't be used on portrait mode (only landscape). What can you do on portrait mode? All pictures I saw are in landscape except for 1.Is the portrait mode just for dialing & playing music?
I heard this phone doesn't send or receivce picture messages.. is this true?

Nokia in 2015 - The Way We Live Next
Julius, 12 Nov 2009I hope gsmarena puts a review soon... I don't know what to get this end of year... N900, HD2, ... moreI don't think they will put up a review anytime soon. They have only put up a preview of the HD2 even though the phone has been out for weeks. At first I couldn't decide between the HD2 and n900; but in the end I have never had any problems with any of the Nokias, so I am definitely getting the n900.
deep space bar, 11 Nov 2009 thanks for acknowledging my intelligents :D good news with rogers their getting the N86 this ... moren86 is definitely the best camera phone out there. My cousin and I did a camera battle with my C905 when I had it and to be honest it was 10 times better than my C905. Ill get my hands on the n900 by early dec. In the meantime Ill be checking here frequently for feedback from users. :)
deep space abar, 11 Nov 2009 sweet how is the keypad since it's longer and bigger?
your lucky to be playing with that dev... moredon't know yet which one i'd get. probably the cheapest.
but my favorite is definitely the N900 (that might change once I play with it this week end... we'll see)
the keyboard of the milestone is really nice.
but it's my first phone with physical keyboard, so I can't compare with any other device.
it's technically bigger than the one on the N900, but it's flat.
so we'll see how the curved keys of the N900 react, it might be better for my big thumbs.
point that I like about the DROID (or milestone):
- the 3.7" capacitive display.
- it's flat (read: thinner than the N900)
- it already has MMS included (no need to wait for some programmer to make the app)
- the android market is (for now) bigger than the OVI store.
- I L.O.V.E. that little station they made for this device (the one you put the device on and it turns in kind of a alarm/music/weather station... it's awesome)
point for the N900 (from what I read in reviews and the video I saw on youtube... again, that my change after this week end):
- the Maemo OS seems to correspond more to my needs.
- the camera (video AND photo) seems better as well.
- 4 screens instead of 3 for the DROID.
- it's a tinny bit more powerful than the DROID.
again, I'll probably go for whichever is cheaper or whichever is first offered by T-mobile.
why not verizon: CDMA really doesn't attract me at all.
why not AT&T: they're probably the worst: expensive, the network is not that great, and if you come to see them for a new phone and you tell them you don't want an iPhone they are (at first) rude, and then leave you alone in the store without helping you anymore.

would be great if they get either way the milestone or the N900.
Their prices are fantastic!
$60 for text, voice and web.
