i hope with the delay in launch, they will incorporate a larger ram capacity (and i dont mean virtual ram), a larger battery (currently they say it has enough juice for a full days of operation but i think it will be a hassle to recharge every night) and a portrait mode that has all the features of the landscape mode.

So relax and wait nokia is doing their best
This phone looks really cool!
Love the sleek design and the 32gb storage!! Looking forward to the release of this one!!
I've also got to add I really can't believe how agressive this forum is getting just about a couple of phones.. everyone has there preferences maybe people should just keep them to themselves and learn to accept people aren't all going to be the same as you!
Can anyone tell me why apparently the upcoming N900 won't support MMS? This has got to be a mistake. If this is true, I think it's a step backwards. Nokia, what's going on???
damn guys it seems there actually is a digital compass. and maybe USB-OTG support too!!!

which is it? just as good or better? FYI it's ALMOST as good. try reading reviews before making silly comments.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2009True, noone really cares here about mass marked devices and noone wants you to buy N900. You r... moreu don't have to be a geek to like this phone... it is just as practical and easy to use as any other phone... i'd have to say better because of the OS and UI .... just look at multiple desktops, calendar arrangement, sync between contacts and calendar and many many other stuff...
but, it is definitely the ultimate geek phone since you can change it completely in anyway you want.
Omg. I'm actually going to puke on the screen in a minute, if I see one more comment saying "blabla...im crying blabla...omg resistive touchscreen blabla..mummy help me...sobsob..." wth are you on about kiddies? This resistive touchscreen is JUST as responsive as the capacitive. Just a lot better. Also for colder countries, it's better to be used with gloves. You don't want to take your gloves off just to touch the screen. Basically resistive touchscreens are made for higher quality phones for people who enjoy an excellent phone.
i think it's a great device and i am going to buy it ,but i heard that it doesnt have MMS feature !!
is that right becaus it is a major disadvantage ?!?!
chk this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHa3AoNdglY yu will b able 2 know all abt mobile ..!!

You really have to be more of a geek to be into this device than just an average phone user that likes simplicity.
Rick, 12 Oct 20091. Yes, I'm sure you are Mr. Perfect and do everything by the book. Well, most people still do... moreWell, there's no doubt that the iPhone is a great device, however the n900 is "no iTunes, no jailbreak, Apache inside". ;)
You're just wasting your time comparing the n900 to the iPhone. The n900 is not targeted to mass market, it's a device targeted to developers and people that want Linux on their phone so they can do whatever they want with it. Don't worry, there's no danger for the iPhone, at least for now.
What is really important is what other Maemo devices will follow the n900 in 2010.
It's official!!! Quake 3 on N900 is official!
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2009You do have a keypad, on the touch screen. I see your mind works really really slow. That's a virtual keypad.

2. That's your opinion as I've seem many iPhone users have no problems selecting text, inputting text, or have problems navigating though a web page. And yes, zooming is important as well as most web sites are designed with wider then most phones can display.
3. The phone doesn't dial on its own. It is because you pressed on it. So what would you like it to do if not to dial the number?
4. Sensitivity is a bad thing? I really hate pressing stuff two or three times. And it doesn't matter what you call it, feedback, flex, bend, cheap, it's the same thing.
5. We're talking about phones... not kiosks here... get with the program.
6. Irrelevant statement.
a. It doesn't matter what they have the "technology" to do. Their idea is what counts. Nokia and others come out with 5-10 new phones a year... Apple 3 in 3 years. Given the same price range of phones, iPhone outsells anything in its class.
b. Again Irrelevant. If people had the chance to make millions but had to output some pollution, I'm sure lots of people wouldn't think twice to do it. Sad but true.
c. Site the article please.
Name calling and personal attacks does not make you sound intelligent. It makes you the complete opposite of intelligence. And no, I'm not an "iSheep." Only Apple device I own is a iPhone 3G and a first generation Nano (never had the need to upgrade since it works so well). I've had many other types of phones before from Nokia, Ericsson, to Motorola. I've used them all. So far, still like the iPhone the best. Just the apps that are available alone make it a good choice.

Anonymous, 12 Oct 2009Keypad. Ükeypad? If you look again, there is no keypad... there's a keyboard though... and I doubt it'll be any less easy to find dialing buttons on those as any touch phone.
Even if you can dial with the keyboard with one hand, it just won't work... think about it... you need to slide the thing out, then some how manage to hold the phone with one hand while your thumb tries to reach and find the numbers... pretty much an inconvenient task at best. With your right hand, I doubt anyone's thumb is that long... so another fail comment...
Rick, 12 Oct 2009Sorry, no. Resistive is just very old technology. It's good for nerds holding a tiny stylus lo... moreWhen you're driving down the freeway, I do not have time to take out a stylus to make a call. I do not want to grow finger nails so I can use my phone without a stylus. I do not want to press hard enough so the 2 pieces of plastic can make contact. I do not want to feel my screen "flex" when I press on it, make it feel cheap. Most people that don't like capacitive touchscreen are iPhone haters anyway.
1.when you drive on the freeway you should use a carkit so you don't kill otier people ot of ignorance.
2.unless you zoom like crazy or use a capacitative stylus selecting text on the iphone is a nightmare.
3.passing with your finger over a contact and the phone starting to dial on it's own sucks.
4.capacitative is both very sensitive and unprecise and resistive doesn't "flex", it offers feedback.
5. capacitative is the "cheap" industrial standard for digital info kiosks that have minimum 15" screens and so doesn't require precission.
5.the right name is not iPhone, it's iFoxconn since:
a) apple doesn't have the technology to build phones
b) preffers to pollute other countries and be "greenpeace" friendly
c) preffers forced labour, slavery and paychecks that don't exceed 100$ a month (see the case of foxconn worker that commited suicide)
As usual a lost iSheep on the nokia forum that doesn't have the slightest clue of what it is talking about.
And as a general statement: "iSheep can't argument opinions, if asked for, they suffer a seizure of hysteria and just leave".
