Nokia N900: First Look

,----[ Quote ]
| The Nokia N900 has just started shipping 
| and there are already a number of reviews 
| of the device out on the net. I've had the 
| opportunity evaluate a pre-release N900 for 
| a few weeks now, and while you can expect a 
| full review in an upcoming issue of Linux 
| Journal, I wanted to give you a quick look 
| into what the N900 is like from the 
| perspective of your average Linux geek. If 
| you've read any of my previous articles in 
| Linux Journal, you'll know that I'm a vim-
| using, mutt-loving sysadmin who spends a 
| lot of time on the command line, so 
| hopefully I can provide a unique 
| perspective on this device.
| [...]
| If you look at the above list, it's 
| essentially the same sorts of things I do 
| on my regular laptop. What surprised me the 
| most about the device is just how much it 
| /feels/ like a regular Debian Linux 
| machine, especially on the command line. I 
| mean it uses upstart, pulseaudio, apt-get, 
| GTK and QT libraries, and when I want root 
| I don't have to use hacked firmware, I just 
| install the gainroot package and type sudo 
| gainroot.


Nokia Finally Releases N900, âTis Exciting But A Bit Late

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia has finally released its Maemo5 based 
| smartphone â the N900. Maemo is Nokiaâs 
| next generation mobile OS. It is a Linux-
| based platform that seeks to take on such 
| juggernauts as the iPhone OS and the 
| Android.
| The N900 has intrigued the tech community 
| and people in general with its bevy of 
| features ever since it was first announce. 
| But when you look at it closely enough, it 
| seems like it is too little, too late yet 
| again. Reminds me of the N97 really.
| [...]
| The Nokia N900 Maemo5 phone is now on 
| preorder from the website for $649. 
| Availability is at end of this month 
| (November â09). Comes only in Black.
