Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Okay, after using this phone camera for awhile, what really drives me bonkers about the camera in the MT4GS is that it doesn't have a cover like the N900 did. The lens ends up covered with skin...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

It's a matter of preference then. I'd rather have to apply pressure to register an input.

BTW I've not ever had a resistive display fail that way.

I've posted a bit about trying to reproduce...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Yeah that's another issue. N900 is the shortest-lived PDA device i've owned over the last 13 years. My Zaurus SL-C860 lasted 5 years and if i hadn't spilled water on it in the lab and ruined a couple...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Yeah the Neo900 is out of my price range and it's not available now, so there are two strikes against it. Furthermore, it will still be dog slow with that hardware. After playing around with this...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Alright. I bought a MyTouch 4G Slide off Ebay for around $75. It has two years newer hardware tech than the N900 and is one of the last QWERTY slider phones of any quality that will work on my...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Hmm just doesn't seem a good match except for the notetaking aspect. Too big for my taste but i'll see if i can find a friend that has one and give it a try.



Yet there are almost no HWKB...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

I've been reading reviews of Blackberry OS 10 and it induces a bit of deja vu from when i discovered Maemo. Talk of how it's a much more secure and sophisticated OS, etc.

Interesting comment i...

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

I can understand the sentiment, and was willing to do that when it was a newer device and the "next model" was expected in the near future, but with the product line essentially dead and the...

What have former N900 owners moved to?

So i've been through 1.9 N900s. Both began their decline with a connection problem in the screen/backlight (something in that connection seems to be especially susceptible to high humidity), but the...

Re: Conboy - Note Taking Application (Tomboy clone)

Re: [Maemo 5] MAME [WIP] (Formerly SDLMAME)

Re: [Conversations] WIP: Fix Conversations (SMS) send problem with database

This has just happened to me for the second time. it seems to tend to happen when the N900 gets frozen and has to be power cycled (typically during processing by Panorama or BlessN900), presumably...

Re: [Announce] kernel-power v47

You can buy a new N900 and hope that its processor handles voltages it wasn't advertised to work at. The very underlying premise of overclocking/undervolting is that some processors perform better...

Re: [Announce] modRana: a flexible GPS navigation system

I was put off by modrana not being vector-based originally (and was trying to use Navit at the time because it IS). I don't have a data plan, so the ability to have everything stored...
