Anonymous, 14 Oct 2009about time nokia step up from 5mp and got to 8mpN900 is a tablet so it just need and has a standard camera
On the other hand i would like to see some special dev made features for the camera like face or smile detection or a countdown that says the countdown on speaker so everyone can hear it
Or a wicked video editor like movie maker on Windows

news on battery life.
the prep-release version lasts about 8-10 hrs with really heavy internet tablet type of use(nonstop browsing, audio, video, voice and video calls) ; and about 2 days with average smartphone type use.
it has about the same bat life as the n97, touch pro 2, and iphone.... taking into consideration the multitasking capabilities... I think n900 has more than impressive bat life.
sourse: the review on ustream.tv.... thanks to the one that gave us the link a few posts below
If you have seen the 3hrs hands-on video on UMPC Portal then you must agree, that no other phone can compete with this one. Incredible handset. Everyting's there in a way that is simply fantastic.
It was launched at Nokia World on 2 September 2009 and was expected to be released on 27 September 2009 in the United States and on 19 October 2009 in 9 European countries.

Are you happy with your iPhone? By the time you spend here researching and discussing Nokia phone I guess not. Give it time. Save your disposable income/allowance and within 5-8 years you can buy yourself a Nokia. Don't get depressed my friend.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2009Symbian will be 100% open source by the end of the year 2010, but it still won't match Maemo :)I can't wait to see symbian v2.0 and maemo 6 and i hope nokia starts putting 256mb as a standard in their smartphones and have 1gb of phone storage
But i have some ideas for the new look of symbian 2 cause they haven't made one yet
But i'm working hard to get this smartphone/tablet i'm kinda thankful they held off the release date
More work to surpass the perfected OS and gives me time to check out the dev programs for this platform and work on the qt work

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970No matter how good the hardware is, Android will most likely never even be close to real Linux (like Maemo). Android is more like Google's own OS, for the mid-end market. Why else doesn't any Android phone have a GPU for example?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The last OS motorola "took care of" was UIQ and thanks to motorola's special touch the entire OS was a failure and the entire UIQ branch was wiped out.
Android hasn't atracted much interest yet and under motorolla... you get where the skepticism comes from...

Yes, they do a pretty good job at competing with forced labour while having to pay a decent salary to their workers.
The secret lays in technology and automation instead of having thousands of people doing robotic work for free.
Apple was never open and never told where it's devices were made until the unfortunate accident and the most chips in the device have their original markings erased and replaced with P/N.
So yes it's possible both to have high end devices and give back to the society instead of feeding upon the poor(who make the phones) and the naive(who buy them).

Symbian phones have done that for years, Symbian is so last year the new messiah of the cult of the Nokians is Maemo, go spread the word among the Nokia sheep (just don't mention MMS or that it's stuck in landscape).

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970N900 blows the N97 away in almost every single spec, but N97 has a wider app catalogue and nicer design. So what do you prefer? No doubt about that the N900 is the king of specs, but is that what you need? If so, then it's probably the best phone to get.
However, keep in mind that it isn't Java compatible right now, but it does still have the best browser on the market.
