The benefits are obviously multitouch, but the drawback is that it's only usable using your fingers directly with skin. It won't work with gloves, or pens (if you like hand writing recognition).
Regarding the dimensions, it's actually very similar to the iPhone with it's 3.5" screen, and slightly smaller. It may be thicker, but that's also because it includes a qwerty keyboard (which is very useful if you use the phone intensively for typing).
Alot of people have a hard time typing, when the 3.5" screen is occupied by a virtual keyboard constantly.
wow...wht a nice phone...fantastic...but anyone knw the price of it...i am willing to buy it... XD
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2009and what about the camera and video capabilities. what about the DNSe 2 and virtual 5.1 SRS. w... moreSomeone said Motorola used Linux a long time ago -- but it was a proprietary linux UI and kernel. The linux build from Maemo is based on GNOME. This is a full fledge OS capable of lots of things; for example memory swap giving the 256 mb ram up 1 gb of virtual ram.
Comparing the old Motorola linux based UIs to Maemo, is like comparing Windows 3.1 to Windows 7. If you think a name has been around for awhile means it's outdated, then people shouldn't use Apple Macs, since Apple has been around since the 70s.
Useful note: iPhone and MacOS X are all unix based - similar to linux.
Based on current promotions, test results, and paper specs, this is a real contender for iPhone.

Anonymous, 29 Aug 2009this is a good phone .but this phone very poor camera .why ur camera very poor i need 10megapixelA higher pixel count (10MP vs 5MP) does not equal better quality photos - much more important is quality of sensor and lens.
mohamed, 30 Aug 2009Hello everyone It is shame for Nokia that not included DVB-H receiver tuner.If DVB-H is included in this phone then don't u know what will be the price. Cmon it's a internet device not a portable TV.
crappy resistive screen, heavy weight of 181g, thickness of 18mm...this phone look like a brick. The new OS will not have many apps and games so i suggest you wait couple of months before buying this phone.
can anyone tell me pleas,can n900 use sisx extention like n96?if not what extention does it use?thank
This mobile phone looks set to be the number one must have phone for 2009 and could pose a threat to the i or the Google G1.
So the N900 is the future,every other company is far behind from Nokia to launch a device even similar to the N900 runninng Maemo 5. The N900 has impresive hardware.
good bye iphone!
