Summary: Great phone for Voice and Data but NO MMS... Whats that about? Can't send a picture phn to phn.. ?? don't like that. You have to use internet email to send a picture. Sometimes ya just want to send a picture. SMS is great.. Mesg alert Alarm etc.. great phone but I'm going to have to change due to the Picture messageing..
Summary: I pre-ordered my N900 the moment I found out about it, back in September. And I patiently waited, and waited, while watching every demo, preview, and review I could find. With each passing day, I knew I was closer to mobile bliss. And one day, my N900 arrived. Sadly, it didn't really deliver. Having (briefly) owned an N97 , I was incredibly disappointed to discover that Nokia has tried their hardest to port elements of Symbian phones to the Maemo platform.
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. i'm kinda mashing more than one button at a time.the camera disappoints compared to previous generation cameras on other N series nokia's.what happened to Xenon? would it have been that hard to put it on this?
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 web, the mail, calendar and contact apps work well together and the skype integration with the dialer is great.
Good but not there yet froze a lot returned & got a nexus one
8 January 2010
Summary: Ok here we go. The keyboard was small not wide enough so it had me wanting my G1 badly. Touch screen is not super smooth you need to apply a bit of pressure. Apps oh wait what apps? lacks content for now. App download area is very ugly. May look better in upgrade who knows. Maemo store not even open yet. Basically I got this because of flash but Nexus One I just got has flash 10[...] it will be added later this month. This phone froze on me so much I had to return it.
Summary: The package did not come with any air bags not even a box....which suprised me a lot. Luckily the phone was fine. As for the product, I think it's more about Nokia instead of Amazon. The product is really an unfinished product but definitely the product I'd like to taste the fresh. Pros:Smooth touch screen. Excellent quality of music. Friendly experience of web browsing.
Conclusion: The N900 might not be an iPhone killer, and it might not be a perfect Netbook/Phone combo yet, but with the Maemo operating system Nokia has laid the groundwork for a great range of devices in the future.
Pros: At first glance the N900 seems impressive. It has a 600MHz Arm Cortex CPU, 256MB of ram and 32GB of onboard storage, with a high resolution, crystal clear 3.5in screen. Naturally, it also has all the basics for a smartphone of this calibre, which means 3G, Bluetooth 2.0, USB connector, and 802.11g wi-fi. The N900 even has a built-in FM transmitter for listening to your music over your car stereo wirelessly.
Cons: Firstly, it feels very plasticky, almost like the inside of a Corsa Utility van. Apart from the nice smooth screen the rest of the N900 just doesnâ€™t feel solid.
