Nokia N8 Vs Nokia N900-Which one you want?

[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

The looks that will make you believe in things like Love at first sight, the price that make you fear that will you be able to get one before the stock runs out, the big amoled multi-touch shiny screen that find you only dreaming that how will be that like touching to it and a 12 MP with amazing build, which keeping you on toe that when you will get that one to make others envy. Yes!! I am talking about Nokia N8.

Beauty_girl_sketchNokia-N8-02

But hey!! wait a little, there might be another news in the corner, something else coming to India sooner than that. Yes!! that thing is known to be Techie’s best dream and opening new possibilities by each next day. Yes!! You guessed right, its Nokia N900. I already wrote that there are strong hints that it might land to India very soon and someone also said that price might be around 26-28k. So, which one you will buy? Nokia N8 or Nokia N900?

update: Nokia N900 got released in India on June 04, 2010. Though we got a price Rs. 30, 369/- not any lesser. Current market price of Nokia N900 in New Delhi as on June 30, 2010 is Rs. 25, 900/- and as this is Nokia Priority Dealer price, sure they must be better deal than this with HotSpot etc.


Interesting is that I haven’t seen a single person that might be ready to change his Nokia N900 for any other phone, either it be iPhone or any Android. Its really something that is growing like some wild fever without being hyped or even without that much backing by the manufacturer itself (unfortunately). We were really tired of hearing thing around iPhone that I got this app, I bought that app, how cool this app is and blah blah … but with Nokia N900, some new and real world seems to be opening. With a closing of around 3-4k price difference, Nokia N900 seems to be all set for keeping consumers highly confused about the choice between the two flagship models once N8 arrives.

I thought that its right to compare the two around the features offered and possibilities here as definitely a new debate is just around the corner that which one should be bought now?


1. Design, Build and UI: There will always be views that what is better, having a awesome physical keypad with you to make most of typing or having a shiny touch screen, that keeps your fingers always etching to slide on? Nokia N8 so far sure ride on the best build from Nokia so far, sure rising the bar much higher than the last Flagship Nokia N97 MIni. More of it, nothing seems more solid than a closed one piece build like Nokia N8 has. But at the same time, you can’t write off the tough male look of Nokia N900 as well. Nothing seemed as solid before. I guess it’ll be left over the choice of individuals.

On the other side, Nokia N900 houses such a nice keypad that people even might crave for something like same on now days Netbooks. It will be seriously interesting to watch that how will a touch screen keypad will fair against something this much awesome, when currently Nokia seems not support multi-touch of keyboard (No Ctrl+C).

Take a look, I am comparing Touch UI’s of Android and iPhone with Physical Keypad of Nokia N900.

Definitely, for many its not a pleasant sacrifice provided the studies that says touch keypad are less efficient than physical ones and it keeps the rumors on for the next NSeries device Nokia N98 with Symbian^3, probably the same 12 MP camera, but incorporating physical keypad with same sleek design (Check the pics).

Nokia N98Nokia-N8-10

Well! personally I really wish to see that how touch UI keypad of Nokia N8’s big screen will fare against Nokia N900’s real convenience that kept me writing many blog posts directly from Nokia N900 only.

Next is about UI, honestly speaking, we haven’t seen much of exciting things about Symbian^3 except that multiple desktop thing. Reason is, it was the Russian site that prompted Nokia to go for announcing the half baked phone, otherwise when Vladislav Savov of Engadget visited Nokia HQ, then he was not presented with a proto-type with NOT working UI, sure a sign that the OS not fully operational yet.

Accept it, till now Symbian^3 might have excited the world in conversations only, yet it remained much to show off in pictures and video, where if we compare the same with Maemo, then we already seen that what wonder could be done with a mere Non-Capacitive UI. Definitely Symbian^3 needs to surprise us hard, if wanted people to forget Maemo for Symbian or MeeGo.

I will say even if lighter weight and sharp build Nokia N8 catches the eye instantly, Nokia N900 keeps the trust with majestic keypad, while Symbian^3 yet to show its full glory, definitely its gonna be hard to ignore N900’s magical Maemo.


2. Connectivity: One of the first phones to support Bluetooth 3.0, USB on the Go, HDMI and all of the other connectivity options that Nokia N900 supported, Nokia N8 is sure ready to hit the competitors big time. Many people says that Nokia like to tick all the checks in specifications and even after doing all end up doing things just ok or badly. But this time, its something seriously to be watched out. It sure beats even Nokia N900 in this department and sure lovely because at least on Symbian, we could expect a perfectly working Radio App for receiving/ transmitting and may be my personal favourite Google Maps app.

bluetooth-3-0USB-on-The-GoNokia-N8-HDMI-Port

For me, I wish to see that how much battery will fair using all these connectivity options as in case of Nokia N900, I have seen that if I keep on using 3G on full go, then it ended up draining the batteries even if being continuously charged by being connected to Laptop. What about the 1200 mAh battery of Nokia N8 in comparison to 1320 mAh of Nokia N900?


3. Touch Vs. Multi-Touch: Nokia definitely has surprised many by announcing Nokia N8 in a price of around 22, 000/- even when packing other first in world features like Bluetooth and a 16GB memory. Fight will be with now more equipped iPhone 4G touch experience, but many expect Nokia be more ready this time through considerable inputs from touch design of N900.

Resistive Screen             VS         Capacitive Screen

Nokia N900 sure came to re-define the touch for Nokia and it has to move further with Nokia N8 even if that might be an entirely another OS. Multi-touch really re-defines the meaning of touch and the same kept iPhone ride on market big times. Sure, Nokia N8 with good things added from N900 will come to provide more lighter feel of Multi-touch. Perhaps much of reasons to buy it.


4. Maemo Vs Symbian: Maemo is probably the biggest reason behind the new hopes with Symbian^3, otherwise many had given up over Nokia that inspite of good hardware and best of the prices. Experts and bloggers called it Nokia’s obsession with Symbian that’s making it loose the grounds in front of revolutionary Android or iPhone OS.

maemosymbian3

Arrival of Qt was to bring some hopes and probably with Symbian^3, we could expect to see that in full glory, but still Nokia N900 will stand tall with its Open source and very much user familiar Maemo in front of Nokia N8 and Symbian^3. Probably one of the biggest reason that we are calling for some kind of comparison here. Openness of Maemo is something that couldn’t be compared with anyone. In spite of early bugs and complaints about immaturity at places, only Maemo has bring the scenario that at each next day, we hear about new people doing new things with their Nokia N900.

Many will voice my concern that they fear if with Meego, they gonna loose the same flexibility that Maemo provided and so have their reasons to stick with Nokia N900. Not only Geeks, but even normal people love Linux based Maemo, because its the only place in Smartphones, where you could expect some multimedia player playing all kind of multimedia files, where you could expecting getting some free program to record the calls as easily as you were on some Desktop, only thing that could let you check the logs if something went wrong.

Yes!! we want capabilities of Nokia N8, but still we love Maemo’s openness more. It remains to be see that who will win?


Lots could be said about these and I just wished to point the debate that would take place over web very soon, when Nokia N8 trial units will be out and people will get a feel of real things. Let’s see, who will go more strong? Will after the early excitement with Nokia N8, Nokia N900 will still keep world’s interest in it or Symbian^3 will come to change the game?

Waiting for your comments, more things that could be compared between the two, more things that could have been mentioned here.. anything that you wish to share about the two… you are most welcome.

Nokia N900 So finally its coming to India

[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

It was early morning reply from @IndiaNokia to Nirav Thakkar that might have prompted CJ to post that something is coming to India. So, Nokia N900 finally seems about to arrive in India.

Nirav asked @IndiaNokia about service of his Nokia N900

question

Surprising and exciting was the reply. Have they went over-excited to reveal it before time?

answer

Definitely twitter is the best medium about being updated 😉 Its crystal clear that Nokia N900 finally coming to India. The question is on how much price they will offer it as India has seen that over priced iPhone 3GS didn’t got place here and Nokia N97 Mini and others sold much higher than N97 Classic. Not only me, but even Nokia might have got the point that Rs. 30, 000/- plus would be a higher amount to be reasonable (people who know about it, might be ready to pay even that amount for it).

Let’s see how long this week gonna to feel.


People who might be thinking that what’s heck about this Nokia N900, should look back for my old posts on the same.

My Next Smartphone?

Sometimes, you find yourself hugely mistimed about things, either it be life, or be profession or about many other things. Same with me at occasions. Here I wished myself talking about my dilemma about my next Smartphone.

starving-child

Technology make so us so much dependent of it that sometimes we feel  like being starved, if kept away from it. In last visit to home, thought to replace the existing much older model of cell-fone at home for mom and decided to give her my Nokia 5310. Did the same and just after that sudden turn of events left me on edge of same “starving”.


One day ago, I was having a bit too many smart phones with me; Nokia 5310, Nokia N82, Nokia 5800 and trial device Nokia N900 and at the next day, I found myself left with Nokia N900 and an old model Nokia 3650 only as lost Nokia 5800 and Nokia N82 went for long-required repairs. Few more days and Nokia N900 was finally to depart. See!!! what now, just Nokia 3650 with me as Nokia N82 is not getting back to me soon from Nokia Care.

Experience with Nokia Care not going well, like many of Nokia users out there though I know there are many, who find their work good enough and apart of my case, I also been in appraising tone for their initiatives about customer services, but ……


Deprived from Internet at home (I was using MTNL now days as Idea SIM lost with Nokia 5800), I am almost out of patience about buying some smart-phone in hurry. Still weighing  my options as wanted to settle for some time about these hurry and expensive purchases.

The addiction with physical qwerty keypad started with Nokia N900, not letting me settle for Nokia 5800 again, even when I literally loved it considering its amazing price tag (Rs. 13, 200/-) and the only other dependable alternative seems to be Nokia N97 only (if I am follow my instincts for Nokia only).

I actually visited a Nokia  Store in Laxmi Nagar to know about, if any other device is there to suit my needs. The store was showcasing other products as well, so they showed me quite a range of products like Sony Xperia V2, HTC HD Mini, Nokia N97 Mini, Samsung Corby and some other windows based phone.


Honestly speaking, I am confused. As much, I read through reviews and features I am targeting for (obvious overshadowed with dreams of Nokia N900), I found myself relying only on Nokia N97 Mini. But when I place it against Nokia 5800, then I really get dizzy about it. Obviously, I am looking for something like Nokia N900, which doesn’t exist in Indian market till now. Even if I afford a compromise due to my most important requirement Google/ Ovi Maps, then I am not finding myself settled below than N97 Mini.

Now, although there are many positive differences starting from Internal Memory to Digital Compass or Home Screen Widgets and I found it attractively slimmer and tougher enough due to stainless steal body, but still I find myself wondering.

There is a huge difference between Nokia N97 and Nokia 5800 of Rs. 10, 000/-.

How much the qwerty keypad worth, if I am constantly reading about issues around inconsistencies?

Why 1200 mAh battery provided to Nokia N97 Mini stands below than Nokia 5800?

Why the sliding mechanism seems prone to broke down, if mishandled, why not smooth like that of Nokia N900?

Was FM transmitter that costly enough to be removed?


I almost would have bought Nokia N97 even then, but the words that Nokia N900 might be coming here in next two months made me paused. But still if it comes, its not gonna be any lesser than 30, 000/- here and I could afford one, but at such a price, I need all I required.

I really wish to have a Nokia N97 Mini in my hands for some time to know, if I could say Go for it. At least till when some excellent MeeGo device appears, which provide better alternative over Nokia N900. Wasn’t wishing so, but asked WomWorld, if they could help me about any of these two; Nokia N97 Mini for Trial or some old Nokia N900. Still don’t know, till when I will be able to hold the temptation to buy one, although I keep on reminding myself that I just lost a Nokia 5800 and money needs to be wisely spent. Nokia N97 Mini seems to be promising, but ….


Update: Here the wait begins

  • Got a word from Nokia Care Center that I will be needed to wait for two three days more.
  • Got a word from Paul, WomWorld, that it could be arranged to send me a Nokia N97 Mini for trial. Really great people they are. I think I could give a shape to my article about these promotion strategies.
  • Got a word from DHL, that the shipment back to WomWorld is with Customs there and they would revert me back about the details as I asked for.

Although I got a few good read as well, but recently came across a video explaining about the things, which was in Nokia N97 and not  in Nokia 5800 (Though its not about Nokia N97 mini, but even then works for the purpose of comparison with mini)

Nokia N900 – Things you never seen before anywhere else

I am back to Delhi. Right now in the train. You may find it funny that I am leaving my hometown on the same day as Holi, but it is and let it be, I am already sad about it.
The fact is I am travelling and have passed more than 8 hours without even noticing, without getting bored, without even talking to strangers, co-passengers. Bad!!! Isn’t it??? A man is supposed to be a social animal, right??? But this thing is addictive, really addictive!!! I’ve to own it or have to own it’s successor ‘MeeGo’ or whatever they are calling it. Just wish that they remove those annoying absences and they’ll win me.

Here I am using MaStory again to post my views, when just finished watching ‘9’, ‘Dark Night’, ‘The Last Legion’ and ‘Visions’ over the same ‘kmplayer’ with my Nokia N900. Yes! It’s batteries are not almighty to last longer than 6 hours movie play over it, but even then 6 hours movie play!!! Isn’t it amazing? I sound like advertising the trial device, I got… Right??? I swear I don’t wanna sound so, but …

Here I am to summarize a few apps and conveniences, I found with only Nokia N900 and will be missing in all device, I will be buying next before I buy this one (or a better version of it based on Maemo or MeeGo.)


1. Qwerty keypad: I read someone out there ranting about keypad that they should have kept the spacebar in middle of all. Spare me plz!!! Suggesting something is different thing and actually putting it to work for most of users is other.

I am literally loving the way, it’s keypad is and kudos to Nokia that they are pushing most of their latest devices with qwerty keypads. Smart phones gonna be like they never before. Earlier you heard that you could do all the things of world with your smart phone, just need to learn a few things about it and now…. You don’t even need to learn, just do the way you were doing with your lappy or PC. Do someone needs Netbook here or that genre will die in same way as Pagers did against cell-phones?


2. 3.5" screen, 16M colors and 800×480 resolution: I thought about such a day when watching movies and browsing web over cells would be that much easier, cell-phone companies thought that soon enough the market of Value Added Services will see a boom, but nothing worked out that much faster as is supposed to happen now with such high resolution/ size devices out there in market (affordable for pocket as well). Watching full movies over it with aid its powerful batteries is so unreal.


3. MaStory: My bad!! Might be the case that I never used any other Blogging apps on smart-phones, but I never had this much bigger and clear screen device is in my hand with a perfect qwerty keypad ever. I really became so much comfortable with its keypad in shortest period of time that now even hours don’t hurt me. I never posted from phones before and even the idea was tiring enough, but this one changed all, really did.


4. KMplayer: Don’t know it’s Mplayer being called as KMplayer here or some entire different movie player, but it works like the same. Those linux freaks out there know much about this player and even some windows enthusiastic too. The VLC player been GOD for many of us movie watchers and when we get a capable phone like this, we always googled if something like VLC out there for it.

Here is your answer. Work like just perfect, no laggings in video and simple enough to catch up with things. I presume that all shortcuts with the linux version are right here like arrow key for forwarding or reversing the play and space for pause/ play meanwhile Ctrl+Back Space to switch across applications in faster ways. I placed .srt and .sub files with the movies in same name and it worked the way it should. The resolution of 800 x 480 makes it actually readable than pulling your eyeballs out only. You must have seen snapshots of move ‘9’ over it, but I’ll post you back some of mine to show that how real it is.


5. Sketch: Again my bad that I don’t play enough with default apps that come with the device itself, but like many other things with device, it was an entire different scenario, when I came across the amazing app named Sketch. I created one sketch through it for time-pass while travelling in train and it didn’t came out that bad. I seen people sketching through paint brush of windows os, but sketching in digital was never a thing of my kind even if I know basics of sketching some ways. With Sketch app starting from the name aided with the resolution/ size of the screen+responsiveness of touch. I really never thought of doing this with a phone. Sure!!! I suggest you to have screen guard ON, but in all, it would be a favourite time-pass to many.


6. Conversations, Gtalk, Skype, IMs: This is something truely about communication. You would find it unparallel in the way it removes the differences between typing on laptop and cell-phone, but also the way it removes the differences between SMSs and IMs. A true communication device in deed. It really has it all without third party apps. I salute you Nokia!! Hats off.


7. The openness: Its been long when we were looking for the ways to go beneath of phones. Lots of ways to hack your smart-phone is available on net, but here came the true control, where hacking is legal and many times even encouraged. With such a true open platform, possibilities are literally countless. May be Android come with a better processor and fully integrated with Google services, but it wont excite you as a platform, as much Maemo does. Its a start of new era in the same way Linux, Solaris or Java was. I really want it grow.


Many things more could be written over my unique experiences with this device, but I am about to reach office and sure I wont look good enough with both hands engaged in typing on cell, so ending the post here. Will love to have your comments about your experiences.


When was finishing my article from Live Writer, I came across an article via twitter, which seems more broader in coverage, I would like to share here. Take a read, it boldly shows how impressive and unique Nokia N900 is as a device.

Nokia N900 – Not only for geeks but for mass as well

“Be it early impressions once it arrived to me, be it my first detailed article mentioning it as definitely geek, be it my article revolving around MaStory or be my criticism about it, I guess most of the time, I sounded like Nokia N900 has everything Geek about it. Is it really so?”


Size comparisonWhy Nokia N900 going to appeal regular mass more than other phones (not just Geeks)?

Let me be honest about it, after loosing my Nokia 5800, being aware of Non-Repairable condition of my Nokia N82, giving my simple yet effectively main Nokia 5310 XpressMusic to home and last few days with trial device Nokia N900, my quest is set between Nokia N900, Nokia N97 and Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and my choice is again Nokia 5800 XpressMusic for the same reasons, I stated earlier.

But I tell you, I am resisting urge of buying Nokia N900 just somehow and the reasons for going Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will be solely because of amazing price tag and inclusion of all the features I require (you cant get this much with that price anywhere else, just Rs. 13,200/-), otherwise Nokia N900 has a lot to market it for mass. Let me discuss a few here.


  1. Powerful like a dream: Insanely powerful ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz, more than enough 256 MBpower RAM, separate PowerVR SGX graphics (can run games like never before and run HD Videos like a charm), 3.5 inches screen with unbelievable resolution of 800×480 (I literally enjoying watching movies all the way in train and web experience, you just can’t match), gigantic internal storage of 32 Gb and still place of MicroSD Card slot to accommodate a max of 16 Gb more (can you believe?). Have you heard of something like this?

  2. Loaded Multimedia device: With XpressMusic series, Nokia seems to be all out for war to take onmultimedia_site music market. Such a powerful device and a full 24 Hrs 30 Minutes Music Play just matches the specifications so well. A perfect fitting 5 MP camera (2576×1936) equipped with Video recordings capability, dual LED Flash, video light, Geo-tagging and not to be forgotten cover over lens. A revamped interface for music player, possibility of playing all available formats videos due to availability of various open source codec and mplayer etc (I am playing all my movie collection that is divx, xvid or wmv and that too with normal srt’s subtitles. Isn’t a VLC player, you always looking for you smart phone?). Top of all, you even have a FM Transmitter means you could stream music from your cell to other devices.

  3. Amazingly sound UI: While the resistive touch screen performs much better than anyone’snokia_n900_ui_2 expectations and widgets enabled desktop can fit into anyone’s requirements, but the show stopper is superb multi tasking of the device. I don’t think that anyone might be thinking to define some “Out of memory” error for this device due to 256 MB of RAM and 700 MB+ Application memory in addition. With such an enormous power, one could really think about so many possibilities.  

  4. Connections that any smart-phone is all about: 2G (GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900), 3G (HSDPA, 10Mbps; HSUPA, 2Mbps), class 32 GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g DLNA, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, Infrared, microUSB v2.0 and A-GPS; look like Nokia decided not to say NO for anything. I guess only remained was a normal USB port or normal LAN Port.. just kidding.

  5. Integration of Gtalk/ Skype and unification of SMS/ IMs: Generations changing and skype technologies adopting the same. Our smart-phones have became as integrated to our lives as social networks and IMs on internet. Integration of Skype and Gtalk opens just another dimension. Provided extremely fast Internet Connections, you never gonna needing headfone for calling from your Laptop, when Gtalk and Skype already there for you. Conversation view of SMS/ IMs might seem a new thing to many, but its gonna be a rule in near future.

  6. Open nature of the device and OS: Are you still thinking about possibilities with Android or openness_sky_sea iPhone OS? Do you still think it would ever gonna take that long to fix some app? Gone those days, with a truly open source OS, you could really expect fast updates and quicker fixes like nothing before. Many a times, you wont be needed to wait for official apps even. Moreover, existing large pool of debian applications is already there that could be ported to your Nokia N900 with some serious efforts. Limit is only where your imagination might took some time to reach.

Its such a capable device that every techie around the globe knows that its still much below its own potential. Still Ovi Support Pending, still Google Apps waiting to join the party, still  some here and there improvements for UI could be thought, but do you think that anything could challenge this device in its capability/ possibilities and openness?

I am still waiting for inclusion of Google Apps, release of this device to India and some amazing price tag like best ever Nokia 5800 has, but even then this device stands as best dream of anyone out there.

Update: Just came across a much detailed article about it

 

Nokia N900 -Things I don’t like

Visitng home is fun all the times. Azamgarh is not so small city for Uttar Pradesh (been declared as ‘Mandal’), but still it’s disappointing to have such an absurd schedule of power cut. First one is 11.30 AM-4.30 PM and second one after 11.00 PM for whole night. really… No space for me to do anything. Adding the misery, Inverter of home also seems to asking for complete replacement of batteries. Hard time for me like Computer Maniac for sure!!!! Thanks to N900, sure helping me out a lot in this boredum.

Many days had been passed with Trial Device Nokia N900 and I am really feeling something inside, when it will leave me. It’s been a real perfect cellfone for me till now, but still there are quite a many things that still holding me from buying it. Trying to pen down a few, hoping that Maemo could improve in near future:

1. No support for Google Apps: It’s no hidden fact that I like Google’s innovativegoogle and strongly integrated apps a lot. Following the recent incidents, I really don’t want to compromise without Google Maps and Gmail’s native apps in any case.

I hear Nokia’s claims that they are already maintening two-three platforms: series 40, symbian and Maemo nad it would be hard to them to look into one more that is java.

I understand that Google already providing apps for all other platforms and it would be one thing more for them, which is complicated due to no support of Java in Maemo. May be Google holding their hands due to direct threat from Maemo, but still it’s not acceptable situation for me. I want Maemo to grow, I want Google too.

This is sure big holding for me till now about Nokia N900 and Maemo.


2. Some more improvements as a phone itself: There are still many annoyingphone things as a phone itself, though many settled till now, but still … A way to go for sure.

Like USSD number issue!!! I really feel surprised that why Maemo developers take this issue lightly like just a bug only and that too seems to be mentioned as closed. Yes!! A USSD-widget is there for download (which is a pure debian package only) but those who might have started using the same sure think its annoying to keep a widget just for that, which is expected to be native features for a phone.

Same with MMS, we have an apps FMMS for that, but like ussd-widget, it’s also not part of official default repositories. I could understand that for a tablet kind of device that’s expected to be live most of the time should sure feel MMS something kind of outdated technology, but still what’s so hard in keeping the support on?

One more thing, which I specially liked about Nokia N900 is coversations style uniting all IM communications and SMS united at the same place…. Truely qualifying it as an advanced communication device. But somewhere I think that there should have been some optional setting or package to provide traditional ways to look over SMS only. Sometimes its hard to change the habits.


3. Improve Ovi Maps: Yes … I do like Google Maps, but still Ovi Maps were havingovi a few advantages as I mentioned before. But now with current app with Nokia N900, honestly speaking I am not happy. Not many days left, when Google will start offering voice guided navigation and offline maps, till then you really need to improve otherwise forget it ….

Still I’ve to say that it’s a great phone in deed and the above criticism is meant to improvise the naive platform only. There are really a lot of things with it that you wont find in any other phone even in the leading ones and this really makes your life cool than just showing off. Nokia really moved a lot to lead the world again.


4. No Ovi Suit Support: Its really disappoints you about vision of Nokia, when they are ready to launch a device as capable like Nokia N900, which really could make iPhone and others run for their money, but still not accomplished the other marks, which seems obvious now. Ovi Suit and its sync getting well in mass and you launch your best set without any suit at all (Yes! it works with PC Suit, but its just compatibility, not made for it.)? I don’t find it strategically a good step. Are you really serious about Nokia N900? Are you still in hang over of your beloved Symbian? I tell you.. you are making big mistake, if not backing up this device whole heartedly. Its quite a shock!!!


My message: I really wanna to buy this phone, but please improve about these as it’s not that hard practically.

I also found a similar article from Nokia Guide few mins back, which voices the similar concern in a little better words than me, get a read here.

Sorry for not that neat article, just wrote as was getting bored in power cut.

Nokia N900 – here comes my first sketch ever from cell

Don’t laugh over the ill looking sketch, after all its my just first attempt to draw some sketch from Nokia N900’s paintbrush, otherwise I make quite good ones as per my view at least.
 

On womworld, I had seen someone posted many of sketches and I thought to give it a try from my side as well. currently I am in a long 1000 km journey by train, about to reach in half an hour I guess. It’s really great being with a Nokia N900, isn’t it?
