Nokia N900 Smartphone Features

The Nokia N900 is Nokia's vision of where phones will eventually be. Running a new OS Maemo thats based on the same Linux OS that runs on PC's the N900 means the N900 packs a punch. The N900 also includes 32GB of on board memory, enough for most music libraries and several films and an 5 mega-pixel camera capable of recording DVD quality video.


  • Genuinely feels more like a PC then a phone to use
  • Can handle full Adobe Flash web pages
  • Desktop class web browser


  • Software feels unfinished
  • They keyboard feels a little cramped
  • Resistive (stylus based) touch screen

What our customers say:

Very Good Phone!: The OS is fast and responsive and it has all the apps I really care to have. If you want you can join up with maemo and develop what you don't have. It works the way I want a phone to work (like a tablet PC).

Love It... But: I love my N900. At first I was disappointed. Big, no apps etc, but then you soon realise, why do you need a Facebook app (for instance) when the full webpage including chat etc work like a desktop browser, even over 3G!!

Wow: Totally blown away by this phone. Really easy to use and can be tailored to your requirements by the excellent desktop arrangements.... There isn't another phone on the market that can touch this at the minute.

What we say:

Nokia want phones to become pocket computers and the N900 is the boldest step we've seen in this direction. Running a slightly modified PC OS, using the N900 you can see the potential. The generous 32GB of memory and the high quality 5 mega-pixel camera all tie together to make the N900 an excellent media player. If your prepared to work and tinker with the N900 then you'll be rewarded with a device that redefines what a phone should be.

Superior phone!

really good one!

What a superb handheld PC and phone

As a UNIX/Linux sys admin and programmer, I deliberately chose this phone as it's the only pocketable Debian Linux handheld PC around with superb connectivity (wi-fi, 3G, GPRS, etc) and a really good and very usable little keyboard. So I can log into any *n*x system remotely via ssh and whatever network connection is available and get work done. Currently running a MySQL database server on my N900 and doing development work on my daily commute - it's great! Loads of software on the Maemo site too and in the Ovi store. Oh, and it's a lovely phone too!

Glad to find a unique phone

I have been looking for something unique for some time and Nokia has delivered a very powerful tablet phone. I use this more as a tablet PC rather than a phone and have a pre-pay SIM card just for data use, when I am not in a WiFi zone. If you are a geek, having UNIX command line access with tools like sed, awk, Perl is really good. This phone is as practical as the Nokia Communicator 9110 that I had many years ago. One thing to be mindful of is that all this processing power comes at a cost, i.e. battery life. The n900 will definitely need to be charged daily. If you use it heavily like I do, then you might want to keep the mains/USB charger handy. At the moment the bulk of the applications are being written by Maemo but hopefully there will be more applications available from the Nokia Ovi site.
