The difference is Maemo is open-sourced -- it's easy to modify the Maemo OS, but not so easy to modify the iPhone. Jailbreaking an iPhone is like stealing a car, but just because it's stolen, doesn't mean you can open the hood; with Maemo, the hood is open for you to see how everything works, which makes it alot more easy to modify. :)
Some differences I like to point out between iPhone and N900 in hardware for those who prefer the capacitative touch screen:
personally, I prefer the ability to use a stylus pen, the qwerty keyboard, and a 5 mp camera. I like to wear gloves when it's cold, I don't want to take it off just so I can answer the iPhone when someone is calling me. It's also easier for girls with long finger nails too. :P
Probably China,like other N-class from Nokia..If you want Finland made Nokia go for the E-series
come to think of it, i'm one of the early iPhone adaptors 3 years ago, and within this years, apple is giving me the same old specs, the same UI, the same form factor, with only a bits of upgrade yearly for 2G, 3G, 3GS.. and those upgrade were not even astounding, who wouldn't be bored with it.
N900 offers a different experince, sleek UI, better specs and feature, pc-like experience among others! it will be stupid for an apple fanboy like me not to fall for the N900. way to stupid!
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2009You do know that it can't do MMS?just like iphone! anyways at least there's a huge possibility ahead, and Meamo is fast evolving not like iphone who is stock to wilderness.. apple doesn't seemed to listen to consumers demand. there only about to roll out MMS in US and that's a service used by competitors 10 years ago..
well.. thats apple! they tend to rely on hype all along which is about to be trash with consumers like me getting feed up

Jailbreak and you can do the same with applications.
Then there's Adobe Flash which I covered earlier.
In reply to this comment:-
"The difference is with Maemo's active community and linux operating system, you aren't restricted to just mp3's, games, and applications from Apple. That's the difference between open-sourced and close-sourced."

Sorry -- maemo.org is the official development community for MAEMO OS for... moreLike Adobe Flash is close sourced so Apple doesn't use it but they developed WebKit which is open source so Nokia and Maemo are free to use it, which they do for their web browsers.
As long as you support Adobe Flash you support closed source, you have to wait for Adobe to make it for your OS, web developers have to buy Adobe software to use it, everyone HAS to download the software from Adobe to use it.
I think you are a bit mixed up on Apples position on open source,
Great OS and software!
The only improvement necessary is the design. Why not a full-touchscreen device when the keyboard is crammed,small and uncomfortable to use anyway?
try compare with SE X2 side by side, you will see the difference, in fact they are very different, judge yourself which has higher specs
Dis fone luks gud n has a better spec than the n97
wil b getin 1 as soon as it is out :)
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2009LOL? you must be from US if you think motorola has anything to do with SMARTphones. I mistaken... morewhen you generalise we do take it personally. Iphone is a pure American hype...we know that...but everyone doesn't bost an iphone in America. We are fully aware which phones are good and which phones are wanabes with a popular company logo on it (i.e. iphone)....lastly chicks in America thought razr, krzr, and all those other phones were "hot" because it was thin. Again another media hype that started on dawsons creek I believe. Stop watching soo much American T.V and then generalizing everyone.
