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?

I nearly jumped about a month ago, but heard something that made me hold back. It had been advertised with USB host, but folks on #maemo say it's not working, and may not work without a powered hub. My Tosa has spoiled me, and now all my linux devices must have a working USB host! smile.gif

So...I'm holding onto the Freerunner for the moment...hoping for something else more interesting to come along.
