After reading about the N900 in this week's FAZ, I was curious to play with the N900 myself. Emailed the Nokia agency, and here it is. Thick as a brick. There is no other smartphone at vowe's magic flying circus as boxy as the N900. Besides the E90 of course.
- I like it. Not as a phone, but as an adventure. This will be a fun ride.
- Zero difficulties setting it up. Within 5 minutes I had: Wi-Fi, Gmail, Gtalk, Skype, Contacts, Calendars, Facebook. Without touching a PC/Mac, without consulting the Interwebs.
- Shot my first brilliant photo, connected to the Mac, up comes iPhoto. Can't show the photo, because it reveals the dirt on my keyboard. In g(l)ory detail.
For you N900 riders out there: what do I install?
There is no other other smartphone at vowe's magic flying circus as boxy as the N900.
Hopefully they will fix that and the battery time with the next hardware revision.
Other than that, I'm still waiting with my purchase for a slight price drop. :-)
Try installing Android... ;-)
from what i have read the hermes app is cool you will be able to get the profile pictures of your facebook contacts and merge them with your phone contacts. also Powertwitter is really good for tweeting (I have only tested it on a desktop). Looking forward to your further reviews
There aren't too many apps yet, I installed the Load applet, Foreca weather widget, SSH and the IP widget.
The FM radio looks good, but not very impressed with it.
If you want more apps you can go in to Extras-testing (which are the beta aps)
The IP app is cool. Having problems with the extras-testing, and I want to get the AIM plugin.
Flash in a browser rocks, can play Dicewars on the train now :)
Did you get this box?
No, nothing as fancy. I also did not get all the accessories that are in the big box.
