cost of a nokia n900 =$650 OUCH
do the math and then compare specs"
How do you compare a phone on contract to a phone with no contract? :S
The Nokia N900's $650 price tag is without contract; it's roughly the same price as an iPhone or other phone's of it's category.
N900 has a great design and I think the new linux based OS (Maemo 5) will be a hit. I understand the RAM can be expandible to 1GB, thats cool. Nokia should Improve processor to more than 1ghz. This phone is like a tablet PC.
this phone is only can be on landscape mode? don't see any video or picture of this phone on portrait mode........
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I guess we will have to wait another 3 years for xperia X3 ... by then who knows what phones will be out there
1) AMOLED Screens
2) SSD hard drives
3) Quad core chips
4) Clock speed 3 + GHZ
5) RAM 4 GB +
6) 4 G - LTE
7) Satellite phone capability etc
Well first of all that's not X3 specs, it's the cpu specs.
Second here's a phone with that cpu:
The only thing special about it is the lame battery life.
So there's another winmo in the bunch. LOL.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Thanks for posting specs for foxconn x3.
Unfortunately already a tie since it has dedicated SGX chip hardware acceleration, so If you were to count polys and triangles it's roughly the same, only thing is that 3D is harder to be run without a dedicated chip.
So, be a fanboy, wait for your foxconn x3 but keep in mind that the reason why it has 1ghz do do the same things as N900 is either the clocks are overrated (as in 1 amd clock does not equal an intel clock) or the OS is badly optimised and the cpu is really bery strong, so you'll get half of N900 battery time.
Either way by the time x3 comes out we'll be playin' with the next N9XX :)
BTW, have you actually ever wondered why sony's UIQ branch went broke and now they employ other companies to build their phones?
Maybe because sony is too stupid to build smartphones :))
Amaaaaaaaaaazing phone...I just love it...At last nokia has come out of its symbian thing....Wish could come sooner.....Best thing is the change in OS....Thanks to nokia....
I really think that if nokia wants to keep up with the iPhone, they should have an app store and have a lot of different program to be put into it. That is why apple iPhone is extremely popular in the market. Also be able to put yahoo mail into it by just the touch of a button like in iPhone. That's just my two cents
Vladimir, 08 Sep 2009Also, Maemo is better than Android. It has far more capabilites and is open-source as well. ... moremaemo isn`t a new technology,its been around for years..and when you mention open source do you know what you really mean? androids are much more open source than maemo that you are proud of..how many applications do you see for maemo comparing to android? be sure to know what you are talking about before you say anything hahaha!

Will this N900 have a built in compass and a FM tuner? Is Nokia moving forward or backward? Let them continue their trend. I am pretty sure they'll be extinct soon, unless scientists figure out a way to make old people live forever... because only old people are buying Nokia phones
seems to be the greatest phone of Nokia..definite it has killer looks...yeah...SamsunG Just got the Looks but inside(software e.g,,,malfunctioned) ...Nopkia is the best...swear!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970dude even if the specifications u just mentioned are true doesnt mean tht this x3 can be compared to n900
n900 gonna release in 1 month and x3 noooooooooooooooo idea
even x2 is not released yet
so u can imagine when will x3 release and till then
what new technology will nokia,samsung and apple have
if x3 with these specification was released now with n900,
we all could imagine what a grt competition could take place
same like when N SERIES AND WALKMAN SERIES WERE released and such a grt competition took place in those days

When you mention the SE Xperia X3, why do you mention all those specs? The revolutionary thing about the N900 is its new Os. You don't need high-end hardware like the Snapdragon processor to run it smoothly.
