The Nokia N900 looks impressive, with maemo 5 and finally a muli-touch screen this fone does look cool. However its needs again in my opinion apps to back up the fone. However i believe this fone can generally put up a fight against the dominate iphone.
Cant wait for it.........
brian, 08 Sep 2009looks like its better than n97....oh well have to wait and get rid of my e90 hahahahahaha!!!!!... moreKep your E90, it is the best by far, does anyone actually use the phones for what they have been designed for, e.g mobile business solutions.
I use my E90 (having bought my N97 and having it sitting on the shelf doing nothing, because thats all its best used for) all day, the contacts are excellent, I add notes to a contact, rename the field label, use organiser correctly as a really usefull CRM system.
I bet nobody knows that if you add a string into a contact note on the E90, N97, and the useless Iphone, THEN use the "in device search" on all three devices, ONLY the E90 finds the string. That is a huge downfall for the N97 and Iphone.
The N97 does not allow contact field label editing.
Also anyone noticed that when you switch phones using Nokias crapy transfer, it misses the Contact Groups, loses the customised label names, AND most importantly doesn't bother copying Active notes. What a dumb dumb arse bunch of testers Nokia must have...
So in a nutshell KEEP the E90, it is the best, but lets see what this so called n900 hotshot linux device is like for actual business use because there are some of us out here who actually WANT to use these devices for their everyday business tool.
PLaYD, 08 Sep 2009this phone is only can be on landscape mode? don't see any video or picture of this phone on p... moreThe phone certainly has telephone functions which work in portrait mode, I've seen videos of this on YouTube. I'm not sure if that extends to the "desktop" experience as well - time will tell I guess!
I think I'm going to wait for the N910 or whatever comes next to the N900. This device is like the 5800 of the 5th edition, a tester. I don't wanna be Nokia's guinea pig.
awesome phone i just do not like the fact that u cant fully use it in portrait mode and have to always be in landscape mode

And no... Android is not as free as Maemo is! Can you run other OS with Android? No, because Google wants you to use their own apps, just like Apple. And besides, there is no single feature which Android has that Maemo hasn't. Name ONE thing which is superior in Android, just ONE thing! Because the hardware support is better by far on Maemo, the app availibility is a killer on Maemo with multiple OS and the GUI is really nice! Everything is better, simply admit it, or say what is superior in Android.
Google-fanboys have hard to argument with FACTS...

jame, 08 Sep 2009hello what is N900 app file format??It's based on Debian Linux so *.deb. It runs a lot of Linux programs such as pidgin, firefox, transmission (bittorrent client). etc.
marko, 08 Sep 2009can anyone tell me is this phone work only in horizontal mode or can work in portret mode too.... moreit was designed to work in landscape mode. If you turn the phone to portrait mode, the phone application comes up. However programmers have been given the ability to design programs to work in portrait mode.
EK, 08 Sep 2009hey i really think its one of the best phones and i really want to buy it when it comes out bu... moreYes yes it supports PORTRAIT VIEW. If you turn the phone. That way you can dial with the touchscreen the phone nummber.. Look at YouTube or Jkkmobile.. 16min review by JKKMOBILE
hey i really think its one of the best phones and i really want to buy it when it comes out but i have one question that no one answers!
DOES IT WORK IN PORTRAIT VIEW? (or only landscape)
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2009Foxconn is just assembling but designig is done by SE. Foxconn also assemble apple products li... moreSo what sony can't do their own phones? If you liked xperia x1 then you liked HTC, go get yourelf another HTC because x2 is foxconn.
WHO? cares it's designed by sony?? it's not MADE by them because sony knows this line will fail miserably like the UIQ; X1 was a failure, that's why HTC doesn't make x2.
