I've just replaced my mobile phone and based on a good experience of the N810 I've bought an n900. Early days, but here are some initial impressions:

The UI is pretty usable and the zooming is very slick and smooth. Lots of RAM seems to keep everything moving along when multitasksing, but the write speed of the memory feels slow. No benchmarks, just gut feel.

Application availability is still poor. Things such as Abiword are starting to appear on extras-dev but overall, way behind the competiton. Come on, Nokia!

Hardware is great. Its fast. FM transmitter, fast GPS, real keyboard - everything you need.

My plan is to do relatively little tinkering on the phone OS itself, in order to keep it working as a phone! but easy Debian is installed and that seems to offer a great sandbox to play in without fear of breaking the phone itself.

More later. Anybody else got one?

Thinking abt it. smile.gif

Got a couple of netbooks and love the portability compared to notebooks.
Just restored my akita back to life, after the less than stellar adventure with Zubuntu.
Either I stick to the akita /w cacko 1.23 or I get a N900.

Some of the new tablets are tempting, but until they have 7++ hrs batt life and 2~3 days suspend, they are less than useful.
