Two Comprehensive N900/Maemo 5 Reviews

When it rains, it pours. We not have not one but two very comprehensive (read as exceptionally long) reviews of the N900 and its Maemo 5 OS. Michal Jerz at My-Symbian looks at the N900 in minute detail right from the camera with image/video samples, to the hardware, build quality, Maemo 5 and even available applications.

In conclusion he has praise for the speed and stability of the device, the quick GPS, the new Maemo 5 OS and quite a few other things. His concerns stem from the lack of Java support, limited number of profiles, no equalizer and the internal memory amongst other things. Considering the fact that the review is based on a proto device with unfinished software, it is quite possible that quite a few of these niggles go away by the time the device hits the shelves. Jump over for the complete low down.

  1. That’s a bit of a mystery. The N800 did not ship with a FM radio app at first. However, Nokia released a software to use it later. So we’ll just have to wait and see.

  2. I hope that common sense will prevail and they will include FM Radio.

    Any news about E52/55 coming to India? Or Nokia has given India slip.

  3. what do you think what is the right choice is it the Nokia n97mini or Nokia n97.I thing Nokia n97 still keeps its head up with 32Gb memory, better screen, and a larger display.and obviously the 2.0v update.

    please let me know about your views
