All the Nokia fans that dissed the iphone when it came out because there was no MMS support
No MMS support on the N900!!!!!!
"My 5 year old phone can do MMS, what a letdown, epic fail!"
Every time I read a comment on gsm arena about N900, I shed a tear.... because Nokia Indonesia haven't put any small information on nokia.co.id. If I search N900 in the nokia.co.id, it would only said no product at all. :((((((... really sad.
Nokia N900 Showing it can function on Portrait Mode – Pictures and Video
Nokijus, 29 Nov 2009After this review i prefer to buy Nokia N97, even i have a more favour to Maemo 5 OS. Reason, ... moreLandscape mode only?
no fm applications?
And you know what? this is going to be better every second!! keep ur N97 if you want to, you know u want an N900!
After this review i prefer to buy Nokia N97, even i have a more favour to Maemo 5 OS. Reason, on Nokia N900 not a lot function compare with Nokia N97. Even video recorder on Nokia N900 just 25fps and no DivX player.
UI only works in landscape mode (for now)
No smart and voice dialing
Outdated camera interface and features
No preinstalled voice-guided SatNav application
No voice recorder, no MMS, and no handwriting recognition
No FM radio application (despite that the hardware's there)
And many more other reason.
Hope next time on other Nokia Maemo 5 OS handset many disadvantages will wanished.
On Nokia N900 i like ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz, PowerVR SGX graphics, Memory 32GB Hard Drive / 256 MB RAM / 768 MB ROM, Maemo (FF) browser.

Nokia wanted to make it an 'internet anywhere' device and somewhat eat into the netbook crowd... the best way they could do so: make it into a smart-ish phone with a 3G cellular radio. Plus, this makes it to where people only need one device on them rather than 2 (or 3 or...).
It's like a PS3 or XBox360 w.r.t. integration of connectivity options. Yes, the Xbox or PS3 can connect to the internet and allow for chatting/voice/etc, but it's primarily a gaming system. Same is here: N900's primarily a internet/mobile computer but also allows for phone calls and SMS. It's not much different than the iPhone (I own a couple iPhones and I still think those are very much a iPod/internet/'app' device first, phone second), but the N900 goes beyond the iPhone's capabilities IMO.
I'm surprised at the number of people wanting a touch-only device posting here. It used to be that tactile keyboards were still 'the in thing.' When did this prominent attitude change?
iphone is NOT God!
there are so many other devices out there that out-taken the iphone by miles for example HD2, Palm Pre and N900..
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2009They call it "The Beast" (Satan)? Way cool. And iPhone = Jesus Phone. I already know who wins ... moreIs that the case, God will have its ass kicked by the beast this time!!!
And big time!!!
I think Satan trained this time with Freddie Roach!
i'm drolling about this device quite some time.Can't wait to get my hands on it!

Got mine today 28 November 09 from the Nokia Store in Regent Street London. I had pre ordered the phone over a month ago and FINALLY I have it. Feel sorry for those iPhone users. The official release date for the Nokia N900 for the public is 4 December 09.
If your in London go there now and collect your phone, the list of pre orders I saw is massive.
N900 is way better than iPhone
Don't mind the brick, it's thicker, so what, it's because of the keyboard, and it's so much more powerful with Linux than anything out there
A killer device for 2009 and 2010!
here is why , the Nokia N900 is so thick compared to the rest of the competition..like HD2 , iPhone etc
I dont give a crap what it is!! im buying it!! whatever it is is way better than my always on the shop Iphone, bye bye Apple!!
Even Aliens are going to envy me!!! ;)
The N900 arrived today.
It's probably the best investment I've made, upgrading from the N95
This device could last at least 2 years no matter how you think.
It is a geek device, not meant for mass market.
Anyone interested or is a Linux fan, you will be pleased with the amount of customisation you can do on this device.

You nailed it, bro!
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009well, the mockup is fake, but talking to nokia they dont say that the N920 wont happend.
So... moreOf course there is one coming, call it N920 or something else. That will be the Maemo 6 device.
The point is that people are talking and recommending practices without really knowing what it will look like, or what will be the specs. Will it have MMS? Capacitive screen? Keyboard? Guesses...
And the point of it not being an N series (3xiY person):
- they're marketing it as their "flagship" device
- it is a phone
- the shape is on par (blurred the tablet/phone).
- and their model is an "N" followed by numbers.
What else did you expect? It is the successor of their high end Nxx + Symbian line. It is N series... they made it be that.
very impressed. though i don't think the size is bad. this is a tablet at heart and in that sense it is very slim. compared to the n810 etc.
unfortunately i think people maybe viewing it too much as a new nseries smartphone but its just not in that category.
I also beleive that nokia has put hardware and not the software to support it so that the maemo community can play without hardware limitations, eg IR and FM radio.
I am not too worried on a personal note regarding the radio as i think that a device like this is more suited to internet radio where i can pull up any station i like.
well done nokia, a good addition to the port folio, one i will invest in after seeing the possibilities :)
