Review: Nokia N900

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokiaâs N900 is not a phone, OK. Well, it 
| is a phone, in that it has a SIM slot, and 
| you can use it to make voice calls. And it 
| supports HSDPA and has a front facing 
| camera so you can make video calls. But 
| actually it is more a mini computer than a 
| mobile phone.


Handset Review: Nokia N900

| Itâs been a while since my last substantial 
| review but Iâm back with something a little 
| different for you today. Iâd like to talk 
| about the Nokia N900 Linux-based phone Iâve 
| been testing for the past 6 weeks. Itâs the 
| first Maemo powered device to feature phone 
| functions. Does this move signal a new 
| direction for Nokia? Nobody seems quite 
| sure just yet, but the hardware and 
| software are causing a lot of interest in 
| the Linux community. Hereâs my thoughts on 
| the experience so far.

| No one has made a great gaming phone. Sure, | Apple sells lots of iPhone games but have 
| you ever tried to play a first-person 
| shooter or football game on an iPhone? It's 
| not a terrible experience but it's nowhere 
| near as good as playing those types of 
| games on a Nintendo DS or Sony PSP. As for 
| why Nintendo or Sony hasn't released a 
| gaming phone yet is beyond us but the 
| demand for a device that bridges the gap 
| between a smart phone and a portable gaming 
| console is definitely there.



Nokia N900 Already Available at Carphone Warehouse

| Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia launched
| during the ongoing year its first handset
| running under the Maemo 5 operating system,
| the Nokia N900, a phone that is expected to
| arrive on the UK market as soon as January 14
| is here. However, enthusiasts in the UK won't
| have to wait until then to grab one of these
| beauties, as the handset has been already put
| on sale via Carphone Warehouse, though a
| contract agreement with Vodafone is still
| required.

| Got a Nokia N900 Maemo device ? You can watch
| the updates in your Twitter timeline drop onto
| your screen as snow flakes.


Nokia N900 Review

| Nokia N900 is the final product which opens up a
| new path for the Finnish smartphone producer.
| After Google, which launched its new open source
| operating system for mobile phones, Nokia raised
| the stakes a few months later with its own
| vision, which is called Maemo. Android OS, as
| well as Maemo are both based on the well-known
| Linux platform, but they are pretty much
| different because they are the results of two
| different working teams. Before getting into
| more in-depth information, do not overlook the
| fact that we will be reviewing an Internet
| tablet, with some limited phone capabilities.


Nokia N900 review

| The N900 is Nokiaâs most hyped phone this year,
| running on the Linux-based Maemo OS. Does it
| show that Symbian should be scrapped or is it
| just another touch screen disappointment? We
| review the N900 to find out.
| Nokiaâs recent news that it may make the move
| from Symbian to Maemo for all its smartphones
| wonât come as a disappointment to those who
| have been tut tutting over Symbianâs antiquated
| S60 OS.

| I have to say the Nokia N900 is probably the
| first and only Linux-based mobile device I
| have ever reviewed and I certainly hope
| won't be the last.
