Nice comfy qwerty keyboard vs 3 rows of cramped up hell
MOTOROLA vs nokia
It's a landslide.
Wtf when will nokia learn?
I loved my HTC phones. they have lovly big space for the qwerty keyboards but i dont lik how they had a lot of finger actions for touch screen and that they were powered by windows so i went to nokia for the 5800, it had great music playa and speakers and cool texting modes. but i wasnt really sure since it was the first touch screen nokia has made, there might be bugs. so i waited then
Ta Da!! here comes the nokia N97.
i loved the quality of how it looked, nice slide action sadly not change-able and only 3 rows of qwerty board not 5 or just 4 like how most of complaints and tips nokia was getting.
So nokia got a lot about that and well i bought the nokia n97.
it was fine i liked the good battery it like plays music for like more than the hours it says, it was LOUD!! and i like its class. camera 7/10, calling etc 8/10.
Anyway i dont really lik the 3 rows
So now nokia still makes a 3 rowed fone and still it has harded and smaller keys, that as a fone tester said ″The qwerty buttons just dont feel safe and they dont bring comfort.~
But wen ur texting with the n97 and ur in the market or wateva and you have to text and walk, u have to put the fone at an angle so u can see the screen and qwerty keys since the screen so angled I hate how its not change-able. its so frustrating.
So this fone looks lik it could possibly be an improvment but only 1 way 2 find out!
Nokia man 5
If u have any Questions.
Well after spending the whole day on N900/Maemo... here are some things i would like to share...
Maemo 5 (Fremantle/2009) Debian (Linux) based OS with Hildon (touch optimized) UI (GNOME Framework/Ubuntu Mobile). Linux is well known from plently of software being free and open sourced, so access to existing projects to port is virtually unlimited. With 800x480 resolution it doesnt even need re-optimization for mobile device, only porting to maemo is needed.
Though it should be worth mentioning that Maemo is still not up-to-the-mark and is growing pretty fast.
Some of the -ves of the N900 are as below:
- It doesn't have an onboard FM-radio (3rd party??) even though it offers an FM-transmitter
- lacks support for MMS :-o
- The display needs a protective screen as resistive screen is prone to scratches
- surprisingly it does not have a digital campass...???
- no software for office documents
The N900 positives:
+ quad band GSM/3.5G (10/2 Mbps)/WiFi (54Mbps)/VoIP/IM
+ 3.5"/800x480/TFT 16M screen
+ great sunlight legibility
+ full-blown support for multiple home screens
+ task manager supports live multitasking (vista-like)
+ kinetic scrolling all around, gesture support
+ Maemo5 offers a very feature-rich phonebook
+ phonebook integrates live online services - skype/gTalk/Ovi
+ DivX/XviD support right out of the box
+ charges over USB
+ browser supports Flash/AJAX/JS
+ Maemo supports various languages packages right out of the box
+ user can pick two input languages and switch between them while typing
+ user can make use of two predictive input dictionaries respectively
+ SMS messages are arranged in the form of a chat (gmail-like threads)
+ fully functional email client (HTML/Rich Text) on the go
+ PDF Reader/ RSS Reader on the go
The N900 hardware:
+ TI OMAP3430 Core (ARM Cortex-A8 CPU@600MHz, PowerVR SGX530 GPU@430MHz, TMS320C64x DSP/ISP)
+ 256MB RAM, 768MB NAND VM
+ 256MB (root) + 2GB (/home/opt) storage for apps
+ 32GB (default storage) + 16GB (eMMc)
+ sports DAC33 audio chipset
+ 5MP f/2.8 (Autofocus/Carl Zeiss) Cam, WVGA (848x480, 16:9 @25fps) video
+ Java acceleration and OpenGL ES2.0 Support
+ pixel shader/vertex shader hardware
+ A-GPS (using TI/OMAP Navilink)
+ bluetooth 2.1 (+EDR/A2DP/AVRCP/FTP)
+ has an IR port... hmm... remote control?? eh?

What a complete waste of money this piece of garbage is! There's a weak battery, cheap looking design, very tiny keys, freakishly heavy!!, very weak camera, no MMS which is a very very very basic feature and i guess Nokia is just really st*p*d cause they can't even put MMS!! Yuck!
Well done nokia!!!
We are proud of you and Finland
hope we can see more maemo based phones,
Just offer n97 design phone running maemo 5, or n900 mini I think your competitors will fade away!!!!

Nokia will do the modification just after the official release through new firmware up-date.

hani, 01 Oct 2009u did the biggest mistake n97 just a crap near the n900 :s .To hani,
Well, i can't do much now, and well the price is also almost the same I dont even want to think about it, but I do like my n97 white color, but once it fades away then.
Maybe I didn't do a big mistake after all, okay well maybe I did, but nokia plays a lot of games with us, once every1 will buy this phone they will bring an even better1.
