I think there's a mistake in your article ,page 6. There is double tap zooming in the Gallery.
Andrew Tan, 27 Feb 2010Legend smoother than Nexus becaue the resolution is different. Legend - 320 x 480 Nexus ... moreHave you used the Legend??? If NO, and I know that'll be the answer; how do you know its smoother???
On page 7 you claim the following:
Plenty of connectivity
Connectivity is certainly an area where the Google Nexus One excels. For starters you get quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE for worldwide roaming and dual-band (900/2100 MHz) 3G with HSPA. The HSDPA is quoted at 10.2 Mbps and the HSUPA can reach up to 5.76 Mbps.
On the specs oage you claim 7.2 download and 2 MBPS for upload speeds. Your speeds are off some how..
n900user, 28 Feb 2010For your kind information, N900's battery life is reasonably good, if u know how to use it pro... moreand i love n900 keyboard. it supports almost all the shortcuts that u do in a computer. plus there is a pretty kool virtual keyboard. N900 is not a smartphone. it is a computer.
Wes, 27 Feb 2010The N900's flash is flash lite and it does not work very well, Skype is good, but most mobile ... moreFor your kind information, N900's battery life is reasonably good, if u know how to use it properly. I turn off wifi whenever it's not in use. I should say that it has the best browser by far, mozilla firefox, even though it does not support multi-touch gestures, it's fast, can run flash videos, support multi tabs, and it has weave extension so that u can synchronize all the bookmarks, tabs with pc,laptops,etc. In addition to that it is truly a multitasking prowess.
Already had numerous battery and cell drop out issues. Touch screen is so unresponsive compared to what their mates at Apples produces. Snapdragon is powerful, however I feel the software doesn't take full advantage of this power. Really not to impressed, screen quality is poor except for in the main screen and text, images and video are all over saturated, making it difficult to look at. This could have been so much better, rather disappointed.
ive just played the video sample and my laptop buffered it before playing,,heres to 2010 uks broadband connection which is often 210b/s out of the 8,000,000 b/s i pay for..As to android its still to early to judge for me and 2011 will fair better but me i am still in symbian camp..
The Nexus One is the best phone I've ever owned. I was a very loyal Nokia customer, but the quality of this phone has convinced me to switch. The Android 2.1 OS is spectacular, and very fast and responsive on this hardware. Best of all, its not an iPhone! Steve "Hitler" Jobs cant tell you what software you can install. You aren't shackled to iTunes. The Nexus One is the best smartphone on the market.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2010i don't know if its just in the video but the Smoothness of the Ui isn't perfect
its still ... moreLegend smoother than Nexus becaue the resolution is different.
Legend - 320 x 480
Nexus - 480 x 800
Did you see the different now? Why Legend only 800Mhz can run smoothness than Nexus
D-Day, 27 Feb 2010I was the proud owner of the Nokia N900. Got it as replace for the phone I had lost (Vodafone)... morethe soft keys do work well. need to press on top of the symbols.
P.S sorry, not 16m colours, 64k.
I was the proud owner of the Nokia N900. Got it as replace for the phone I had lost (Vodafone). Really wanted the HTC HD2, but the option was given. I read a lot about the N900 before agreeing to take. Heard a lot of good things about. Plus I'm a tactile person and the hardware keyboard would be great. Different desktop on the Nokia is good and the build quality is ‘okay’, but neither as good as people make it out to be. Plus, I felt the specs are a little outdated. Same processor and RAM (you can't count virtual RAM! it like having a 'virtual' girlfriend) seen in the iPhone 3g(s) and considering the iPhone is one year older, the specs are old. Being a bit of a geek, I've used a lot of different phone (except the iPhone, because everyone seems has one, plus I don't think its attractive. not as sexy as people make it out to be). Sold the N900 on eBay for 415 quid :) When saw the Nexus One and read up on the specs, I felt the "desire" (get it) to get one. Paid 345 pounds, including delivery (got lucky, didn’t pay import tax). I was an Android virgin before I got this. I’ve been using it for a month now and I think it’s great. The Noise cancellation works like a gem. The touch response is super smooth and screen quality is amazing (contrast 100000:1 and 16 million colours). Voice search works brilliantly. Flash support is now on the phone and works beautifully. Got a free app to watch divx, avi and even iPhone format videos. You can tailor this phone to suite you. At first didn’t like the virtual keyboard (VK), because I was accustomed to the hardware keys (HK). I got use it. It’s a matter of breaking through my comfort zone. Now I can type much faster on the VK than the HK. This is a great phone and SO is brilliant!!! Recommend anyone to try it the once. I like to think I’ve a based my opinion experience and facts, rather than the crap others have said. Not much different between the Nexus One and Desire, it’s just a matter personal taste.
Why is there no mention on the benefits of the 2nd mic for noise cancellation and the voice to text feature in practically all apps. One of the specific Google additions for the N1? I'm still torn between this and the Desire and as pointless as some people may see it it could be a deal breaker. I spend alot of time driving for work and the ability to compose and send a text message just by talking to the phone would be brilliant. Does anyone know if this is possible?
This, and the HTC variants are nice but I still don't see any reason to swap these for my iphone.
It is real pocket computer because with multimedia and with its very fast processor besides we have the Google sailor(browser) who offers us the possibility of surfing 24h / 24h no limit, no stop. Really well made a success. Congratulation has Google
Your review and the specs on the main page have different download speeds. Need to check facts for downloadspeeds. Are they 10.2 and 5.76 or 7.2 and ???
Wes, 27 Feb 2010The N900's flash is flash lite and it does not work very well, Skype is good, but most mobile ... moreYEAH! Go have fun with your N900.
