1.0 out of 5 stars Nokia has lost it!, 13 Aug 2011
By 
This review is from: Nokia N900 Sim Free Mobile Computer with Maemo 5 Software (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The N900 had a potential of being a great smartphone. However, its bulky size, lack of applications, and an OS which Nokia had abandoned has left this phone dead in the water. I had this phone for 7 months after which one day I did an update of the software to P.R 1.3 .After this the phone was normal for a short while, The screen went black and there was no display. Since the phone was still under waranty, I sent it to nokia for repairs. To my greatest surprise, Nokia sent it back without repairing it. I sent it back to them and due to their delay it's waranty expired. They then claimed the phone has motherboard failure and they can't repair it. I coughed out a hard earned 380 to buy this phone. I'm done buying any nokia phone of any sort.

The N900 is not a 'smartphone'. It is a pocket Linux computer with added cell-phone capabilities. Do not confuse! The N900 is a wonderful piece of kit, with a little bit of thought you can do great things with it. I stream live television/radio and my entire music collection from my home server. Works to anywhere with a cellphone network or Wi-Fi. All over a secure, encrypted SSH tunnel. Try that with an iPoney!

Dear Ken ! sorry 2 hear about urz N900. I had my N900 baught it back in 2010 from Amazon and now with Nokia at Thetford Repair Centre. Something wrong with the charging point / under warranty , so returned to Nokia for repair. Without my concern/knowledge/asking Nokia people scraped my N900 and replaced it with refurbished E7. I was shocked with the Nokia policy, that without customer cencern/knowing they just scraped/destroyed the handsets and replace it with the choice they fancy. Cheers, bali 14/03/2012
