Nokia N900 review: A new hope

26 November 2009
It’s crystal clear by now that the Nokia N900 has almost nothing to do with the traditional Nseries values. The full QWERTY side-slider may look similar to its double-digit mates but the Maemo experience is completely different...

Interesting reading.As I am looking to replace my mobile I am a position that causes a little concern to me.I like the N900 for its blogging capabilities and speed and power.I have been looking at the Nokia X6 as well.
However I just came from the Nokia Flagship shop here in Helsinki,Finland.They informed me this N900 was to be the last phone with Maembo Os.This seems to me to be a cause for alarm.
Any one else got ideas or predictions for the future of the Nokia N900

What other phone can be overcloked to 1000mhz, play Playstation 1 emulation games , and do full flash 9.4 in the browser? NONE!

That is why this phone is the best of the best!

Hye!!! Can anyone tell me about the real statistics of its battery usage? How long does the battery last for normal usage of phone apps and little bit of media playback; and moderate use of phone, media, internet use for just checking mails etc.

Please reply...

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2010I believe that their next Maemo device should have all the ... moreApparently your "techno-geekyness" is a lie, because if you were truly a geek you would know how hard it is to make 4band 3G antennas and that no phone has them because of the difficulty in manufacturing them.

And you would also know that LTE is 4G, you would also know that LTE exists in very few countriesa and that almost no phone has 4G. But nevermind, continue spreading your ignorance and calling yourself a techno geek.

Well, it looks like T-Mobile USA won't be getting this awesome smart phone. Can't wait for my tax return, because I gotta have it!

Bart, 20 Jan 2010Can anyone tell me about document editor for n900? I have a... morethere is a viewer for pdf, escel, doc, presentations...etc. As for editing, I found a couple of apps, or you can buy the "Docs to Go". Being a former iphone user for two years, I think that this phone is better. it is just a matter of time until Ovi is enriched with a lot of apps and some other simple features to be added.

omid, 10 Jan 2010hey,i have a question.how could we send musics via bluetoot... moreyou can send any type of file you want via bluetooth. just download "petrovic"! enjoy, its a great phone. hopefully nokia will add some voice command functions, let us assign ringtones to contacts, portrait, equalizer for the media player, add more profiles and other simple standard functions. maemo 6 could be the solution! i am sure they will add them, they have these features on their simplest phones. I am really glad bought this phone. it is the only one that released me from the iphone jail! just wait a little, it is a new operating system. they are just taking it easy to avoid bugs as much as possible. A LOT OF ADVANTAGES

Can anyone tell me about document editor for n900? I have a plan of buying one, but if it doesn't have document editor it would be a dealbreaker for me. Thanks for any info, it'll help me a lot.
