    Why express something in words when I can express it better in sound and images?

    Been using it for two months now. Not one reboot, and I have been pushing it with dosbox booting heavy apps. Some days over 8h on the net, maybe 40min call time. And still being able to push it through the hole day on the same battery.

    So I'm more than pleased with it.

    This phone is awesome. It's a linux box in your pocket that takes pictures and can make calls. Awesome.

    What do you mean what he did at the end? He didn't do much.

    1) Changed the hostname on the n900 and showed it can be changed by showing the network he was on saw his hostname

    2) ssh'd in to another box and showed you can edit startup scripts.

    3) rdp into a windows box

    4) used aircrack

    5) connected to a vpn with a vpn client

    6) used vncviewer and logged into a linux box running gnome and was playing wtih bittorrent

    7) telnet

    8) Not sure what he did here, probably logged into a webserver and controlled streaming content

    9) Started ssh on the n900, logged in with putty from a windows box and rebooted it.

    Basically showing how powerful the n900 is. And connection wise it can do just about anything.

    I seriously cannot think of a device that rivals the N900 anywhere in the world (Japan in not included in my world...lol). Keep in mind i'm part of the mentality: "If it doesn't have a physical keyboard, it's an automatic fail". So better than what I imagined for sure! Using PS3 controllerS to play multiplayer SNES games having the device TV-Out'd to an HDTV while chilling down in the couch...priceless

    I consider myself to be savvy with phones and features and what not but what "he did at the end of the video" is absolute chinese to me lol. I don't know what the proper terms are, but when I saw the screen cast, it looked to me as if he was accessing his home PC remotely with the N900 and playing torrents from his home PC on the N900. I'd love to learn how to do that kind of stuff (basic hacking?)!!! I hope the N900 opens my eyes to the world of computing and what not, right now I'm sturggling with foreign accents associated with Dell.com's customer service

    Guys are there any options yet for email apps like Profimail for the N900? I'm not a big Nokia email client fan. Love what I've read about the N900 thus far.

    I think you'll find that the email client is only similar to the s60 phones on first appearance.


    Profmail is a little less interesting to us because we already have so many ways to share files, pictures and messages. The conversations App is great, you can have multiple sms or im conversations going at once, while browsing the net, and not feel skitzed out.

    Also, if you don't like the email client, you can use others or just use the net. gmail looks and works the same as desktop, just the screen is smaller.

    Hope to see you soon.

    Thanks! I think this is my next phone. I was considering the N97 mini but given the issues and lack of RAM I'm cooling off on it. The lack of 3G on the N900 is not such a deal breaker for me as I rarely need it. One concern would be email and downloading large pics/files. I guess I could simply download headers/text only to the N900.

    How is google maps or the like with EDGE only?

    Hey Sasquatch,

    Not a direct answer to your question but you could go into the setup menu of your N86 and switch off "dual mode" to GSM only and live with it a few days, and if that isn't too slow for your needs, then you probably wouldn't even notice the slowdown with no 3G ATT. I tried it and man, talk about slow. I can't bear it! I'm dying to get an N900 but no 3G kills it.

    I'm on ATT, but had to try out the n900... just got it today. Phew, this device/phone is something else.... from a Nokia perspective its unreal how nice maemo is compared to s60 5th. I love how conversations is integrated, it was also easy to set up my m4e and gmail, and I've just started to hit up the repositories... the UI just wows me so far, I love it. Initially, it wasn't as big as I thought it would be, however after a couple hours I'm looking at it and saying man its thick. I'm also really nervous about the usb port but bleh whatever I guess. The matte finish on the bottom of the phone is slick to me, I need to skin it with something, maybe invisible shield.

    Oh by the way I'll probably try out tmobile in my area cause I'd love to use 3g with it. Sidenote - has anyone figured out how to connect to WPA2 enterprise network? At work thats what we run....

    Its not great, but its really not that terrible either. I have AT&T and although I'd like to have 3G, I don't see myself changing my account and all the associated hassles for it.I've yet to find myself in a position that I simply had to have 3G and there was no WiFi around

    Ordered mine, should have it Monday. Are there any case/holster solutions for the N900? I usually throw my phone in my pocket---and sometimes drop my phone. I'd hate to drop the N900 though! My buddy has the nexus one, he swears it's better than the N900....we'll see
