Great screen and sound quality, recommended for experienced users.

Summary: Wonderful phone. Battery lasts for 2 days or more for standard use. One of the last smartphones with full physical keyboard (and touchscreen). Contains many extra features, such as built-in FM transmitter and Infra-red (IR) transmitter. It's only limitation with app compatibility, once it runs linux maemo, it cannot natively run iOS or Android apps, but there are many options since all software for this phone is open code. Recommended for expert users.
Summary: Nokia N900 has to be one of the best cell phones ever. I bought one of these over ebay a few years ago the bad part was i ended up buying it and the keypad on the phone was a french model. My advice to anyone buying these over ebay is contact the seller before buying it! Make sure it has a US or a keypad in your language mostly i've only seen US versions on ebay but some sellers are selling models that are french so becareful!
Summary: Upgraded from E90 as I prefer physical keyboard. Here the combination of touch screen and physical keyboard is great. Pros:open system with debian internals, a lot of personification possibilities, pocket computer, overclocking Cons: low battery life, lack of polish of the phone functions, no 802.11n support. It is remarkable that 2009 device is still usable in 2013.
There is no better phone at this price point, and maybe never will be.

Summary: IS there anything this phone can't do? Video-calling, TV remote control, TV-out, external keyboard and mouse support, one-touch CPU speed overclocking, FM radio and FM transmitter, HACK WIRELESS NETWORKS (load packet injection drivers), Dual boot to android, Pedometer/accelerometer. I thought that since it was MEEGO OS, and there are almost no phones running that OS that it would be lacking apps.
Summary: I bought this a few months ago in 2013. Yes I just said 2013. I liked it because I can use it without data (AT&T data is too expensive). It was a bit clunky but it is still an amazing phone with a great OS. I can proudly say it still outdoes some androids now. I wish it had more apps but it still has a broad selection. Even simple things like a facebook app or youtube app(I found both but they don't work) don't exist but I'm not going to complain.
Summary: very nice and simple phone. Great display and easy to use. Quick internet and wifi access. Its more like a small laptop, you can easyli change display and icons there (shortcuts). Display resolution is very good for me. More languaes for this phone will be better, its the only drawback for n900, if you live in small country. But english will do everything if you know it.
Awesome product! Recommended for those who enjoy customizing or Linux fan.

Summary: A very powerful phone, extremely configurable, with a system based on Debian. Lets open source applications, allows booting with another system, run pure Debian, allows use the console as root and more. As if that were not enough, has 32GB internal memory. It's actually a computer that includes telephony. Thoroughly recommend over any other phone I know.
Summary: i bought this item because of it's internal memory capacity of 32GB,processor,camera 5 mega pixel and it is MAEMO5 instead of Symbian.For the battery i am not satisfy it discharge very quickly i must have a spare battery for it.But the phone is very nice to use.The phone is very different to other phone with the function which have in it,i like it.it is the best phone that i see and i recommended those who interest in it buy it without hesitate it is very nice to enjoy...
Excerpt: ive been using this phone for 3 years, and believe me if nokia bring another meamo os, i'd but it without any hesitation, but it went for WP.. and there no phone in the market that tempts me enough to leave this amazing phone, espescially the android os phones for the UI its the best, and multi-tasking is real cool it should have got better specifications, like CPU, Touch Screen, Screen Resolution, RAM...
Excerpt: By far the best Nokia purchase i have ever made. The nokia N900 is a dream come true for a computer enthusiest like me. With a built in 32 Gb memory arm8 processor its built to do anything. It can be overclocked to 1.15Ghz. its like having a mini comuter in your pockets. The flexibility it has is amazing I run the native maemo operating system as well as android, ubuntu and windows 95.
