5.0 out of 5 stars Best phone I ever had, 5 Sep 2011

This review is from: Nokia N900 Sim Free Mobile Computer with Maemo 5 Software (Wireless Phone Accessory)
My N900 has just given up, it failed at the plug in for electricity. However I owned it 1 1/2 yrs and used it heavily and it survived several falls in a household with young kids. Functionally I just loved MAEMO, a system totally distanced from the commercial world. Most aps were free, and 95% worked. The system was fast and powerful. The downside was that Nokia killed Maemo itself and therefore from 2010 aps were no longer renewing. I great loss to the mobile industry I think, subject to bad management at Nokia and bad marketing. I will not be getting another Nokia because I do not want an all streamed windows offering me commercial pay for aps and twice not because Nokia withheld the N900 follow up the N9 from the market in the major Western nations so that we go for Windows 7. Having worked with this phone it is beyond belief to ditch such a great system and community.

Plus:
Great camera,
great resolution
fast processor
tons of memory space
all aps one would reasonably want for free
fantastic audio recordings
very good QERTY keyboard
good battery life (one day at full use)

Minuses
disappointing twitter aps
