is the interface always in landscape mode ,, can it never be operated in a portrait mode ??
wel people of the universe now is the time to tell nokia to be serious than before coz as market leaders we expect them to start 12mega pixel series on the n900 unlike 5m if they want to mantain a markert shere or else samsung leads the way

UNIX is a SHELL. Not an OS.
OS X runs on UNIX.
It's not copying it or w.e.
MS BOUGHT DOS- still the foundations of some of the features in the Vista OS- for $50,000.
So don't go on spreading crap about Apple when they're both not innovative- just manipulative.
Also, it was only in the OS X series where the Macintosh operating systems even used UNIX.
Before then they used their own shell.
So please, just shut up rather than trying to make one-sided posts which actually have nothing to do with the subject in hand.
It's debatable whether or not Symbian is a better OS than Maemo, but most who actually know what Maemo is and have had experience with it will agree that it is by far superior to any other mobile OS on the market and comparable to a desktop OS.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2009...but not java??? Most of the apps that contain java code don't need neither the VM nor the libraries, but there are some cute applets loved by hackers so I think someone might port it.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2009...but not java??? N900 will not need Java, since it has powerful graphic card
What puts N900 above other smartphones or even beyond the class of smartphones:

And for psion, psion became symbian, it's THAT easy.
As for N900 it's pointless to make a new OS when there already are so many out there.
The lamer here is apple wich aalways wanted to compete with microsoft without having an OS.
When both companies started, that's when operating systems were made, only apple was never able to make one of their own.
MACos is more UNIX than "based on unix" hence it's lameness.
i don't know anything about the Maemo 5, can i download 3rd party applications?

See Apple contributes openly without suing people.
Unlike nokia who think they invented cellphones and wifi so sue people for making a phone.
They also took Psions work and built on it, what are they going to sue Symbian users, now they are taking from the Linux community, I hope they end up like SCO.
