This device uses Maemo 5 software on Linux.

This sentence gave me shivers. I know its nothing new, since the 770, n800, n810, Google Android etc all run on linux, but to see it in writing in a manual, on a device as open as the n900 by a major company like Nokia bodes well for the future of Linux and Open Source Software.
(Should the word "Based" be put before the on though? The sentence structure seems odd)

One could make an argument for both, I suppose, but, yes, it does stink of marketing speak.

Pedantically, Linux is the kernel, and Maemo 5 is a particular collection of software than runs on that kernel. So, the sentence works.

However, given the more common usage of "Linux", yes, the sentence feels a little peculiar.

EDIT: Beaten by the General!

no handwriting recognition and no voice dialing...that is a big dissapointment!

anyone know whether on can change the size of the pictures of your contacts on the homescreens, they seem awfully big..

This feels a little bit like christmas. Now I found the packet under Mom's and Dad's bed, I can look at the shape and feel it, but I still have to wait until I get it. :)

Maybe this will mean that the phone is coming sooner than later

And I'm not sure about calling the stand a "kickstand" is a good idea either; I can see the support calls now ... ;)

Thanks for the link BTW!
