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 :)
Julius, 27 Nov 2009There is _NO_ Nokia N920. The famous leaked pictures from Nokiaport.de are not what it seems. ... morewell, the mockup is fake, but talking to nokia they dont say that the N920 wont happend.
So there might actually be a N920 in the making.
martinkem, 27 Nov 2009i love the multi-tasking part of the Nokia N900..which is by far the gripe i have with my ipho... moretry samsung jet, and you wont miss capacative screen at all... multi-touch is just a gimmic... One finger zoom is far more handy, cause it allows single hand use.
So the down side is that Nokia cant make as good displays as Samsung, but its not about the technology of resistiv screens, its all about the implementation.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009your wrong about the camera at this stage.
the 12 megapixel moduels at this moment take the b... moreCOOL STORY BRO
But last time i checked A4 is far from "standard" for printing pictures, it's standard document printing size. And again, a cell phone camera is a cool feature, nothing more. Most people use it to snap a quick pic when they don't have a camera on them, not for serious photography. none of this would ever be worth printing in the first place, let alone on A4.
But i can already imagine you being the kind of person that relies on your 12MP phone camera for all pictures, so you have to convince yourself that it's actually of any real use.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009nice review. it's yet to see whether it will make a hit in the market. to be honest i dont want it to be a hit.
I dont want to see many people using it.
That makes it even sweeter for me
nice review. it's yet to see whether it will make a hit in the market.
Honestly, so many of you are missing the point.
This is an INTERNET TABLET, NOT A PHONE
It just happens to do calls well because it's a Nokia.
If you are looking for a touchscreen phone, then go get one!
I'll take the web browsing, multiple apps at once, the bevvy of features, the video, the Maemo OS, and the potential for future apps on an OS that developers are already raving about before the damn thing even comes out yet!
Go head, get your iPhone, your blackberrys and your HTC's, go head no one is stopping you.
But for something that doubles as a netbook and phone, all while having internet connectivity at all times, I'll gladly take the N900!
PS - go to maemo.org, and look at the apps that are already coming out, that include the MSOffice suite for free among others...
Nokia’s Maemo OS – The next big wave
Nokia is facing the unenviable task of telling to their suppliers that company’s first Maemo 5 powered phone has been delayed due the overwhelming demand and that they will not be receiving units until December 4th!
Halfwit, 27 Nov 2009I am starting to get irritated by how many people are complaining that this phone is bulky. Th... morethe n95 whas how many years ago + 21 mm is no longer exeptable, they wil make things thiner like 13 to 16 and lighter they are just doing there old tricks again, knowing that the people that are gona buy the n900 wil surley skip to a thiner and lighter model when they relase it/ Picture nokia CEO's on the round table talking about there strategic and profit plans than talking about roadmaps, well you get the picture and thats just with about any company, just look ad what you need in a phone instead of waiting for the perfect on then your ok why would i buy this if i know the upgrade is just around the corner?
guys you don't need to look the N920 up on google that one is a fake, Nokia is stil not sure whether they wil call it N920 or N950 set for Q1 2010

A very curious thing on the Eldar’s review, is that he names a ”Nokia N920” that doesn’t have keyboard. The review is a bit long, but under the ”Text-Input” tab you can see that he refers to this unknown device which is a Maemo powered device and apparently lacks a keyboard. Very interesting that Nokia is planning on having multiple devices running Maemo 5 and not just the N900. Stay tuned for more news on the Maemo 5 platform and the rumor on the N920!
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2009Can you play farmville on this phone? :)Men it sounds funny but actually u can play Farmville, Cafe world and all those Facebook games! If thats what u dig, the N900 delivers that also!
Julius, 27 Nov 2009For those of you lazy to read: - He created a phone to show his preferences. - He designed... morethe rumor about the n920 is true but the design of the n920 rumors are not true, go to mobile-review, their is some1 who is reviewing the n900 and the person said that next year nokia will release a n920 without a qwerty keyboard, and the os is maemo 6, so it's true but we dont know the design yet so we have to wait for next year...

- He created a phone to show his preferences.
- He designed the physical phone, that's why he didn't care putting the old Maemo UI (obviously, the N920 wouldn't have that UI, but at least the one on the N900).
- Finally, I belive, Nokia wouldn't put out a design so close to that of the iPhone. All black would be more reasonable, and not a simple "clone".
Midas, 27 Nov 2009I dont agree that this review is biased. I think the reviewer mentioned the good and bad point... moreThere is _NO_ Nokia N920. The famous leaked pictures from Nokiaport.de are not what it seems. It was designed by a person who never claimed that it would be the new Maemo 6 device. He just created, by himself, a "mock-up" of what a _possible_ phone would look like.
Call it imagination, user fan art, but not N920.

As always, remove spaces. ;)
I played with this phone and used for like 45 minutes and is absolutely outstanding!!!! i have the iphone 3GS and i'm selling it to buy this phone as soon as possible. i know that the iphone screen is better and more responsive, but when you grab in your hand the N900 and see the user interface, the multitasking, the web browser, etc... Dude!!!! this is the best phone by far i ever seen.
i know that some people is arguing about the size, but to be honest is not that big, and feel really nice in the hands.
