I can only laugh at the Iphone vs nokia lovers battle going on here... I simply want the best phone overall don't care about the brand .... IMO this is it, nothing personal on iphones... but I think they are just eye candy but not that functional
before anyone starts arguing with captive and the OS nonsense (iphone) ... let me say that u are right in that it's awesome how it looks... but as I said... I want functional, not eye candy
overall, is there another phone better than this? eg: omniapro, hero??

Why do you want to compromise with this junk, which took two years to catch up with the iPhones HTML based email client.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009You mean "real" OS's like UNIX, which is what the iPhone is based on.
Of course the iPhone ... moreDear mr McSheep (MAC sheep) One of the first mac OSes was based on unix and linux a long long time ago. Since then apple has ditched every gnu/gpl part that made it unix, hence it would be extremely wrong to say iphone is based on unix/linux since it has by far nothing to do with those.
If iphone had swap, I believe it would have been advertised in every newspaper and magazine the same way apple advertises boo-hooo... beware of the autofocus!!! beware of the video recording!!! and makes it sound like it would be a first for anyone.
The question is are apple fanboys never tired to be experimented upon? I mean the first two iphones were pure scrap and that's not to blame on anyone since if someone would try to inject windows vista into a phone the result would be as desastrous (especially when you have no experience whatsoever about mobile devices).
And yet here we are with the third iphone that has the same lame resolution( probably the device can't handle more) a lame camera like any 3year old phone has, poor video recording as a novelty and not even a clumsy led... How ridiculous is that?
I don't mind waiting, I'm actually waiting or a non keyboard maemo that will come in ab 6 months, but aren't you guys bored of waiting the same lame boring device with some minor changes every year?

Of course the iPhone can use it's swap memory as virtual memory, it doesn't have "mass memory" divided up all over the place like lesser phone OS's, it has RAM and it has flash memory.
Reading and writing out to flash memory is a lot slower than reading and writing to RAM, running "25+ HD Movies at once" is not likely to work at all and if you somehow managed to achieve this the framerate would be very poor.
Obviously you have no idea about how operating systems work, you are clutching at straws and making stuff up.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009I found some web site that 19th October.The release date has been delayed on this phone!!!
Also i rand up vodafone to ask about when it will be available on a contract and they said towards the back end of the month but it might change.
nick, 04 Oct 2009that's impossible, you cannot use storage memory as virtual memoryWell I truly doubt iphone can, I mean apple boasts about things as bluetooth and 3 megapixel camera saying "it's the most advanced computer".
But real OSes windows (any?), most linuxes (dunno ab limo) and ofcourse maemo, can.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009You are so full of it and have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about.
Did you kn... more"Did you know the iPhone can use ALL available memory as virtual memory"
Jailbroken and probably with some silly app it can. But it's useless since core OS components can't use or manage it. and what makes you think anyone cares if iphone uses swap since it doesn't multiatask anyway.
Multitask means doing multiple tasks;
I can mltitask too, I'm reading two books at the same time, I close one and I open the other, that's how Iphone works (by frezing execution and sending in background).
Either way the whole core of iphone is junk. If you've ever strayed from a mac, you've strayed for good, that's how much they suck.
To all of those how thinks that the iphone is better ... Shut the hell UP cuz this nokia has a covered camera unlike that idioted open camera (that can be scratched easily) of the iphone!!!
I am sure thousends agrees me with that point and it in enough to show that iphones won't stand agains N900. NEVER!
Very goood phone,
The maemo os 5 will attract many buyers, well done nokia
hope the asian won't wait too long to get this phone
I guess many people are already bored with iPhone os android os and symbian os
hope it will be a success
btw n97 is my Xmas gift, cause I don't want to spend an arm and a leg for buying phone
n97 is powerful enough for me and it is small enough for me to carry, stylish enough to use it as fashion accessoriies:) just hope it's price drop a lot before my friend buy it for me !
N900 KING , 04 Oct 2009hey you copying my sayings get back to your kiddy phone low life iphone child
n900 king i bl... moreHey will this have a quad core CPU like the N97 was going to have...
...hahaha, those were funny days.
Nokia Sheep always make up stuff that down the track leads to a BIG let down, just like the N900 will be.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009Obviosly you don't have an Iphone. Else you would know it sucks.
Obviously you haven't seen... moreYou are so full of it and have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about.
Did you know the iPhone can use ALL available memory as virtual memory but it's pretty slow running multiple movies in virtual memory would make them skip all over the place.
It will NOT have desktop Firefox, for the simple reason that it WILL NOT run on it.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009Get an iPhone...
...come over to the dark side, you know you want to.hey you copying my sayings get back to your kiddy phone low life iphone child
n900 king i bless all my nokianz
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009meh, nothing new there, except a lack of MMS and it's stuck in landscape mode, that'd be great... moreAnd I forgot to say... won't worry about the lack of MMS, it's not targeted at you anyway.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009meh, nothing new there, except a lack of MMS and it's stuck in landscape mode, that'd be great... moreObviosly you don't have an Iphone. Else you would know it sucks.
Obviously you haven't seen a N900 either...
N900 is the first phone to allow 25+ HD videos to run simultaneously, due 1GB application memory
N900 is the first phone to have Bounce Evolution graphics, due not having predessors with weaker hardware
N900 is the first phone to render ALL web-based Flash games (.swf) in 800x480 resolution, either on screen or TV (with IR or DNLA)
N900 is the first phone to allow full access to the X Terminal
N900 is the first phone to render web pages just like Firefox, becuase it has a REAL version of Firefox (not like Opera Mini or Safari Mobile)
N900 is the first phone to have 20+ emulators of other platforms, completly without DRM (I'm looking at you, Itunes)
Are you sure about the spacificaions states here ? I am not sure abut the DIGITAL COMPASS ... :(
