  • Summary: Not a new item. Came with a DESTROYED battery that wouldn't charge, boot the phone, or fit in the phone because of the bubbling.

I liked it well enough for a while

Piotr K., Newegg
14 September 2012
  • Summary: Perhaps if I could code Linux/Android I'd have been happier. As it is - it was an interesting experiment I don't regret but wouldn't repeat it now.
  • Pros: It was fun for a while, and did the stuff I hoped for. But...
  • Cons: ... it started failing badly, hardware and software. Had to had USB port replaced, then it broke down again. And the app market was a desert. App support for what was there was poor, too. Google Maps never worked.

Good phone

Jani K., Newegg
27 July 2010
  • Summary: It's a great phone but better Nokia products are heading to the market this fall and next spring. N8 and N9. But it's a nice phone for the time being - I also only buy and use Nokia phones.
  • Pros: Multi-tasking; NOKIA phone; touch screen; Qwerty
  • Cons: Qwerty hard to use if trying to hold the phone in my hands. If I have too many apps running at the same time it's very sluggish. Very bad battery life (with bluetooth and wifi and gps running) - my E90 that this replaced could run for up to 2 days with everything turned on.

Decent, far from perfect

Tadashi H., Newegg
13 April 2010
  • Summary: I certainly wish the N900 ran on android. If one is looking for a phone first, then research the N900 first, then make your decision. THis was a poor purchase decision on my part, maybe it will grow on me. I hope. Maemo has potential for sure, but somehow i think Android will bury this OS
  • Pros: Big screen, good build quality, good camera/flash, skype, good cpu/memory, lots of potential (but yet untapped). multitasking is great
  • Cons: First, the phone aspect is secondary to the rest of the features. As this is my only phone, i find the N900 a step back for me from my N95. No name display, call quality not the greatest, at first confusing phone screen. Lack of mms. No equalizer for the music player. No date indicator with the c...

why?

Anonymous, Phone Arena
2 March 2010
  • Excerpt: i saw this phone and said why not. i gave it a shot. it didn't impress me that much at first but after some firmware updates its ok. the speakers could have been louder. the touch screen is smooth most of the time.the keyboard is a bit too small for fingers.

Lots of promise, but will it be fulfilled?

tonygeno "tonygeno", Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: I received the N900 today and have been playing with it for several hours. I find the form factor to be fine and like the heft. If feels solid in your hand. Others have done a good job of discussing the pros and cons of this device: it's got a great web browser, it's easy to zoom and enjoy the full...

good, almost great

w s., Newegg
24 February 2010
  • Summary: Its a nice phone and i like it because of the freedom you get with Unlocked Nokia phones. You arent constrained to Itunes or Driod market. Its still early, so the apps arent there yet. The iPhone makes you saw, wow how cool. This one doesnt yet.
  • Pros: 1.Good screen, video playback is almost dvd quality. although its a pain in direct sunlight. 2.good contact/dailing app (you wont accidently call someone by touching their name), sms nicely set up. 3. Truly open, will play almost anything..apps that are available now and growing are mostly FREE! ...
  • Cons: 1. NO MMS, if you take a picture of something or someone at lets say the ballpark, you cant send it to your friends... i know there is a workaround with FMMS but its a bandaid and doesnt take advantage of the phones power. 2. speaker volume is terrible, if you switch a call to speaker, you have t...

The almost everything phone

Dimitri L., Newegg
4 February 2010
  • Summary: I believe while the device is a solid piece of hardware it is NOT a mass market ready device. The current firmware leaves a lot to be desired, with complete lack of basic functionality such as MMS and being able to assign individual ringtones to contacts.
  • Pros: - Great build quality - Awesome display (colors + resolution) - Full desktop style web-browser - Lots of storage + additional SD card capable - Great camera and video quality for a phone - Good quality analog output on 3.5 mm headphone jack - Super hacker + modification friendly
  • Cons: - No MMS support in current firmware - Lack of useful 3rd party applications - Resistive touchscreen is not fully finger friendly (use stylus or fingernail) - Screen is prone to scratching (plastic) - FM Transmitter is weak and almost useless in most cars (needs more power output) - Buggy firmware
