keflex, 23 Jan 20111. It does NOT support video calls on 3G (not to be confused with
Skype video calls over 3G ... moreSurprising to see the extent to which even reputed companies like Nokia can go to mislead users. While thier battery of agents and PR firms are doing what they are told to do by Nokia, it reflects bad on them that to sell their phone they can mislead people to this extent. We all know that tecjnically, its impossible to have vieeo calls over 3g network and that the front camera simply doesnt woek, still, nokia agents are making such tall claims.
SHAME ON NOKIA AND THEIR PR GUYS!
keflex, 23 Jan 20111. It does NOT support video calls on 3G (not to be confused with Skype video calls over 3G ... moreCould you please let everyone know how to make 3G video calls on N900? Even Nokia acknowledges that this is NOT possible....why are you misleading the prospective buyers? Please give the exact link as to how to make a Video call over a 3G network (NOT Skype calls over 3G)...
SAV, 06 Jan 2011Guys, Have used n900 for over 7 months now - have even flashed the firmware (now I am on PR1.3... moreThanks "SAV" - your comments were very helpful - though I initially ignored your comments and got swayed by a number of messages posted in response to yours, I later realized that all those were incorrect - perhaps Nokia's PR firm employees trying to salvage their client...Of course there are serious issues with N900 (including 3G video calling) and I finally disposed it off at 1/3rd the price. Happy with my Android now - wish, I had ignored these Nokia guys earlier...thanks for your comments anyway.
I'm hoping that someone can help me here, i purchased a brand new Nokia N900 on the 17th/03/2010 and i was very happy and pleased with my choice especially since i have been a Nokia mobile fan for over 13 years, just 2 days ago my N900 stopped detecting my sim card and a message appeared on the screen stating " all telephony functions,including emergency calls, are disabled due to a communication error, to recover you might have to reboot the device" and i have tried that many times, i also tried cleaning my sim card, i went to vodafone and i got a new sim card but the problem persists, i put my sim in my friend's nokia c7 and it works fine so its not the sim's fault. is this a hardware problem or a software one? any help is highly appreciated, BTW I'm located in NZ
Nokia N900 is unique in terms of physical appearance and chrome edging calls for very less competition from other smartphones in the market. Operating system is pretty good to along with all the applications. Overall, this phone is a good entry by Nokia.
theres something wrong with my n900 it say's that ther is an internal error i cant use it please help
SAV, 06 Jan 2011Guys, Have used n900 for over 7 months now - have even flashed the firmware (now I am on PR1.3... more1. It does NOT support video calls on 3G (not to be confused with
Skype video calls over 3G or WiFi)
Many users have been able to do this, myself included. If you have not, this is presumably an issue with QoS from your carrier.
2. using it in portrait form is an issue (most applications don't support that)
Yes, but it's been that way since release. Maemo has always been landscape-oriented and if you did not want this, then you made an ill-advised purchase and are simply angry at yourself for it.
3. no handwriting recognition
Yes there is. http://blog.atnnn.com/p/handwriting-recognition-with-cellwriter-on-the-n900/
4. no voice commands
Can't really argue with this one but again, see my 2nd point.
5. NOT compatible even with basic Nokia (Ovi) services (like Ovi Maps with voice recognition - there is a very basic web based Ovi map support which sucks)
Sygic released voice navigation, and it is also available via Modrana. Nokia may not have provided 100& Ovi support, however many of the gaps in existence have been filled far more ably by the community regardless.
6. highly unreliable and VERY LIMITED (no more than 5-600) applications available
"Highly unreliable" is subjective, as is "very limited". Personally, I have not found myself wishing for any one particular feature my N900 lacks, and have found many that I did not expect/have welcomed. Do not assume your own dissatisfaction rings true universally.
7. Pathetic commitment from Nokia - I think some Avasthy has also uploaded some quote from Nokia on this thread to prove that
Pathetic is a bit of an overstatement, but it is vaguely accurate. Regardless, see the above comment re: the Maemo community.
8. Battery sucks - very bad
Depends on how much work you put into optimising your user experience; I'm assuming you haven't put much in.
9. Nokia centers can't provide proper support - they are bad guys....not trained at all....
I have never needed to call them myself, talk.maemo.org has provided any help I've needed and more.
10. Most seriously, it was the first, last and ONLY device on maemo platform so very soon, n900 users will be left on their luck....
Actually, there have been several Internet Tablets before the N900 and there will be several phones running on MeeGo in the future. Nice try though.
Okay, so you weren't happy with the N900. That's cool, it's definitely not for everyone; it rewards users who are willing to put a decent time investment into getting their unit working just right. But that doesn't justify dismissing the phone within all contexts. The N900 does some things that many phones would kill to do (Sixaxis support, Queen Beecon widgets, IM/Skype integration, etc.). Similarly, it has some shortcomings; the same could be said of Android. Just because these shortcomings matter less to you than those of Maemo does not make one platform better than the other, it makes the two different. I'd hope you could see the distinction to myself, but I get the funny feeling you're too short-sighted to understand.
