5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely worth the wait! 28 Nov 2009
By Andreas Iacovou TOP 500 REVIEWER
I finally had mine delivered today after a 2 month pre-order wait direct from Nokia. I have to say this phone is like no other I have ever used (and I've had many phones from all manufacturers over the years). Firstly it is stunning to look at and the pictures do not do it justice. It is extremely well made, feels solid with all aspects of the hardware feeling very impressive. The keypad is one of the best I've used (miles better than any HTC attempt). Its reactive and intuitive and this coming from someone with big hands. Excellent camera also which is a bonus.

I haven't even got to the software yet, the new Maemo 5 operating system. All I can say is wow. It gives you an unprecedented amount of flexibility (even more than Windows Mobile) It also looks good and in my humble opinion finally we have a genuine advancement over the current iphone which seems to have been leading the way....until now.

I could go on for pages about this phone mainly with positives but would like to quickly address some of the negatives that have been touted around. Firstly the touch screen is very impressive whether you use your finger, nail or stylus. I find it just works as it should and do not feel there is any problem here. Secondly, battery life. I got a full day from the first charge, and that was with heavy usage while I customised it with all my info and with the WIFI on.

If I have to pick one negative it is that at the time of writing the app store 'Ovi' is not up and running. However bare in mind Nokia have delayed the launch date for bricks and mortar shops until 3 December so I expect it will be live by then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent pocket computer and phone 10 Jan 2010
By Ricardo
This Maemo powered Nokia N900 is excellent. The web browser is superb, a proper web browser that does flash, so you can watch youtube. The browser works well on the screen with gestures to zoom in, like double tap. The camera is cool, 5 megapixels and it geotags the location you took your photo using the builtin GPS. Video is good quality too, I've since download Qik and can send videos live to the web. Mediaplayer is good, very good quality watching films, the builtin in speakers are loud and it has TV out to watch on a larger screen. Neat thing is that it has a built in FM transmitter, so listening to music in the car is easy using FM, the N900 even makes your car radio say Nokia on the radio!

It is has an application manager to download more apps, with Ovi shop to follow soon. All applications can be run at the same time, with proper multitasking. Plus as it is a computer, it comes with the x-terminal, so you can do geeky stuff. And of course it is a phone so not only can your get connected over WiFi, you can use 3g and make phone calls. The contact manager groups contacts for phone calls, Skype calls, SMS, instant messages, with a conversations application to view all conversations by contact, making it easy to track conversations, or start new ones.

In all in all, I highly recommend this smart phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open-source Nokia N900 3 Jun 2010
The Nokia N900 smartphone runs Maemo 5 (Linux) operating system. Nokia have released a phone for the open-source community and which hasn't been locked down by either the service provider (T-mobile, Vodafone) or Nokia themselves. This is great news for developers as well as hackers who want to customise their phones as much as possible.

Out of the box, the phone is sim-unlocked and I could insert another sim card without needing to get it unlocked by the service provider or some corner-shop.
This is true of the contract models as well as the sim-free ones. There are tools available for easy flashing of the firmware, so you could change to a non-standard firmware and back again if you want.

Maemo Linux is very similar to desktop Debian or Ubuntu Linux. It uses the apt package tool for easy installing or removing of applications from repositories on the internet. You specify which repositories you wish to use, and then select the free applications you wish to install. Nokia's Ovi Store has more applications available (free and commercial ones) on top of that. I recently counted the applications available in the main repositories (standard, testing, devel) and the total exceeded 7500. Note that Linux software ports really easily to the N900 (It has a Qt based GUI running on an ARM processor).

Although not as intuitive as the iPhone, the Maemo interface on the N900 is still great. I really like it. It has one of the best resistive screens available. There is a tendency for smartphones (e.g. iPhone, HTC Desire) to use capacitive screens. Capacitive are excellent for light touching, skimming the surface, but are poor for high accuracy where resistive excel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant phone 29 Dec 2011
Nokia N900 is an iPhone killer - made 3 years too early yet it still beats it.
* 3G Mobile Phone & computer all in one
* Free VoIP to VoIP calls worldwide with or without video
* VoIP calls (sip) Free or cheap rate
* Web
* e-mail
* Office
* Camera
* Satnav
Two things let it down - the original battery is only rated at 1320mAh. It is possible to buy a 2430mAh battery which should give you 30-40% more life between charging. The second is - you need to be very careful when you buy a second hand refurbished N900 or one in a box that does not have its Nokia seal intact. You could find battery life runs out within 12 hours on stand-by from a full charge. There's a problem with the charging circuit and it cannot be replaced or fixed. I sent mine in to Nokia and was told it was uneconomic to repair and Nokia UK has very low stock left because the phone is no longer produced. I was very lucky to get a replacement as my old phone was still under warranty. Before buying ask the seller for its warranty status. A quick check on its IMEI number should tell you if it's covered.

I use my Nokia N900 as a VoIP (sip) phone to make free VoIP calls all over the world. This is the last Nokia phone that has this capability. It is great if friends live abroad as you can call them free using VoIP free if they are on the same VoIP provider as you with/without video. It's great to take on holiday - no large mobile phone bill months later due to roaming charges you don't even need to insert the sim for VoIP calls to be made or received. Use it at home for a free extra landline (STD) of your choice from various companies without landline charges every month.
