Re: How do you use multitasking in N900?

I second this. Another thing I'd love to see is the OS grouping windows of the same application into a single window or object after passing a certain threshold, similar to say, what WIndows does...

I'm going to describe my usage pattern here but I predict mine will be quite outside the typical usage patterns compared to most users.

Re: Sygic announces world-wide turn-by-turn navigation for Maemo

Re: N900 hardware improvements (N900i)

I'd love to start seeing HDMI out on future Maemo devices. Obviously, it goes without saying that the value of the HDMI out is diminished somewhat if the CPU/GPU aren't powerful enough to playback...

Re: Camera

Yeah, I noticed this as well. It's noticeably faster. I remember taking my first picture with the N900 before the update and thinking "Damn, am I using an N95-1 with the initial firmware?"

Re: Anyone here you purchased the N900 before Nov 16 tried to send in the rebate?

Which rebate form is this? Is this specific to the vendor you purchased from or is the rebate available to everyone who purchased prior to November 16?

Re: N900 Missing from T-Mobile (US) Roadmap
