    I'm on the same boat with you.
    TP2 can do things on both, without sacrifice anything.
    I am still unsure should I get Pharos though.

    My assumption is that the N900 is a one off incident and I don't expect Nokia to be releasing too many more high end phones on the 1700/2100 bands.

    That being said, I am still getting the N900 and going to be using it with the E71 US 3G Version on AT&T with the massive 1500mah battery. I can continue to keep my cheap data plan but will be carrying 2 devices. If I need to do some heavy data work I can connect the N900 to use the E71's AT&T 3G connection.

    Looking at the N900 closely, it's still more like a computer than a phone; which mean voice functions will be a pain to use. I've been doing this before with my N810; but now it's even better because these 2 device compliment each other much better with the 5MP camera.

    The E71 will be the ultimate business/communication device; while the N900 will be the best multimedia/computing device.

    With these 2 running, I think I may be able to squeeze out 2-3 days of usage on both devices and not worry about battery life.

    Anybody else seeing this as well?
    I used to tether my N810 with my E71 using Joikuspot. Boy does the E71 get hot. Just a heads up.

    Yea, even voice on 3G makes the E71 hot.

    I went to the Nokia Store to check if something was wrong with it.

    Turns out all batterys get pretty hot when running on 3G; but the one on the e71 is extra hot because of the metal back-cover.

    Why should you use Joikuspot?
    Except you need to tether with more than one computer, bt can do the job, with up to 1200kbps sustained speed.

    Very true. At the time I felt that bluetooth seemed to be a bit of a bottleneck. Didnt do full test or anything like that though. Would love to try again but 3G over here took a serious dump here in the past year.

    So that means that BT isn't a bottleneck anymore.

    I'm not switching, i'll just wait for a proper american version of the n900.
    Only issues i have with ATT, is their dumbazz billing department. They screw my bill up at least one or twice a year.
    Their service by me in NJ is probably as good as it gets, tmobiles service here is sketchy at best.

    Not a chance.......I'll wait and by the time an ATT version is released it should be relatively bug free, and maybe even a new Hardware version ala the N900-4

    I wouldn't count on an N900 on AT&T friendly bands. It will depend largely on how much of a mainstream seller it becomes. If not, we may have another E90 on our hands. That's not to say a Maemo device won't end up on 850/1900 in the future. Again, it's going to depend on the success of the device.

    Seemingly, that depends on what you mean by powerful. Some things the N97 has over the N900 (AFAIK):
    • Tethering (phone as Bluetooth or USB modem, or WiFi AP)
    • Java 2 Micro-Edition (J2ME): Thousands of applications available at e.g. GetJar.com (e.g. Opera Mini, Salling Clicker, etc).
    • MMS (at least initially, Nokia said they'll add this later).
    • No direct download/installation of software from web sites (need to be done through configured repositories)


    Now, what other device do these deficiencies remind you of?

    On the other hand:
    and the UI is much more advanced than anything S60, in its current iteration, is likely to achieve.
    Now, that it is!
    Plus, the Linux platform definitely has a much bigger mindshare among developers...

I'm thinking now that instead I'll pick up a dumbphone (perhaps the Nokia 5310), either sell it or keep it as a weekend phone, and use the $10 data plan instead.
    Now, did you guys read this thread? It seems that as soon as you put the N900 on their network, they shut down access to your $10/mo plan...

    BTW: I have been very happy with AT&T. (Customer service, network, everything). I'll be getting a Nxxx device, but only after it supports UMTS 850/1900.

    I can only get around 430K if tethering with BT using my 5800 or N95 on AT&T, but tethering with USB cable can get me more than 700K

    430 is pretty good. I would never be able to see that on 3g in Manhattan.

    On a side note, I was playing With Chanse's n900 on AT&T's 2g, and I was extremely impressed. I may stick with AT&T after all. It loaded Slashdot in no time.

    1:The hardware will support Bluetooth, USB or Wifi Tethering. Users will quickly develop software for this.

    2:Would you use J2ME on your home PC or your netbook?

    3:MMS is important, I agree on this one. Although Email works fine.
