About multitasking, if you by default have disabled multitasking to save battery, I don't think that is such a good thing. I mean its like limiting Bugatti Veyron's top speed to 100mph so that it wouldn't suck out all the gas so fast. And then saying yeah it can go 253mph but by default it won't. N900 has the multitasking on by default. Iphone's argument about multitasking is moot, it was not designed for multitasking since they didn't give it a battery for it.
And people talk about how jailbreaking makes iphone better? Pimp My Ride might make a car better. I want better when I carry my stuff out of the store. In Finland we have slightly derogatory saying that furry dice makes your car accelerate faster. If you need to do something to your device after you bought it, can you honestly claim that the design is as good as it should/could be?
Please stop argumenting for iphone's benefit with jailbreaking, since it is then no longer a stock device is it? When comparing these two, if you actually, really have to, compare the devices in the state the maker intended them to be used. Please? Same goes for the multitasking-war the n900 wins all ps iphone users dont read this while your in school you must wait to your mum or dad collects you
iphone = kiddy apps phone
n900 = pro phone
iphone well its sooo last yaer see ya kids n900 king you may leave now
n900 king a big Respect to all of my fellow nokianz n900 king
Iphone is for the world's masses, the isheep. Just like the masses believe that Bush had nothing to do with 9/11 and Bin Ladin actually exists! The iphoe is good for the masses, afterall they're sheep. Isheep.

Oops i forgot. Apple doesn't allow you to access the cached files. No matter maybe somone will write an app for every video hosting site on the web that will allow you to download and not only watch, like you do with youtube.

How about the way apple released it's first phone with it's first firmware? Almost nothing worked and you crowded like sheep to pay around 500$ without contract on a simple phone that couldn't do anything, just because apple told you it was good. Was that onnest? NO, but nokia at least does release plenty of preview info about their devices so you know what to expect.
The fact that is open source doesn't mean it isn't supported by nokia and tailored by nokia as they see fit; it means that any developer who wants to can modify the system the way he wants, speaking of wich, two other operating systems are beeing brought right now to maemo by independent developers, google it.
Neither 5800 nor (especially) iphone (because of the lame resolution and low battery life) can't be called internet tablets. Neither suport multiple tabs and multitasking so even if there are some multi-tab browsers on symbian the performance is extremley low. If we are to add the lame battery life on iphones with the lack of support for flash or nativley viewing youtube (won't even start counting other sites) brings it down to the level of WAP compatible phones, that's right some of the first internet phones could access the net without flash so that's where isheep stand right now, only with a slightly bigger screen.
Both iphone and 5800 are made for average users so try for a change to think out of the box (aka. your head) and imagine other people may need different features WICH YOU MAY NOT NEED!
Nokia is Killing it.. Arrghhh... just talked to Nokia UK sales team... said release date for Uk is 1st week of november. not goood
this is pathetic!i would expect that a phone with a lot of comments would truly be an awsome device...but,no. people have to talk about other forms of crap instead of staying on topic. the fact is that the iphone is dependant on the network it is sold. nokia isn't. apple created a hype about their creation and made everyone think it was the best thing since sliced bread. it's not. it is a half decent internet tablet. if the eeepc was slightly smaller, people would have had a much harder choice. the n900 tries to fill in that gap. It will fail. It will be too expensive. The best internet tablet for now is the 5800. Reasonably priced;well equiped and portable. The n900 and the iphone are pioneer devices. People need to spend more money than necesarry and make due with incompletd feature lists so that technology can move on.Have fun! I intend to reap the benefits of your work. Thank you!

So how come Adobe just announced Flash 10 for Mobiles?
Do you have a time machine to get an N900 and go to next year when Adobe is releasing it?

Iphone and android are the only ones that aren't mature enough to support it. Also as you are a regular user you probably don't know of the many sites that offer original hd videos or the underground ones that offer full movies. Also there are a lot of nice games and sites in flash. It doesn't quite matter if it's 9 or 10 and your crapy mac browser has it embedded so that's why you don't miss it.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2009I think apple should take time to develop in their spare time aswell, I mean all major brands ... moreA few phones have Flash-Lite support which enables content made with ActionScript 2, the new version of Flash 10 for mobiles will be released as a beta for Windows and Palm WebOS later this year, Symbian and Android some time next year, it uses content written with ActionScript 3.
They are not compatible with each other so all the old content will have to be rewritten.
A desktop PC has enough power to run both virtual machines but a phone doesn't.
There is no mention of a version for Maemo.
YouTube which serves the largest amount of videos does not need Flash it and many other sites provide content without the need for flash specifically for iPhones.
I use a Flash blocker on my MacBook, when I go to YouTube I get the HD iPhone version automatically, without Flash.
Can some authority from Nokia confirm when the NAM version will be released in New Zealand? Cheers.

Everyone seems to get that iPhone is a mediocre device built for the masses besides the iSheep.

Well apple makes you wear them proudly and cash up for them!
