Re: need answer of few questions

And once again the maemo welcoming commitee helps out a fellow member in it's usual 'pleasant manner', with 'grace' and 'style.'

Oh wait...

Re: E7 pre-order for $740 (inc tax) ! WTF??!

That price is silly, you can get an ipad for that.

Given the dead end OS and dodgy looking future for the OS in general it isn't really future proof.

Re: N950 with MeeGo this year, but who trusts Nokia anymore?

I am looking at the rapidly expanding HTC desire family which grow from strength to strength for my next phone. I won't be darkening Nokia's door anytime soon after Maemo. Nothing they or Elop says...

Re: Worth buying the nokia n900 now?

To the OP

I wouldn't touch it with someone elses barge pole. Despite what people say on here only a real geek would want to use it.

Re: Nokia Plan B

They do if shareholders tell them to. Such is the price of a public company, if these voices raise to a vote and that vote passes, it is good bye board.

Re: device stuck on 2.5g

As Munkiii said.

Force your phone to select 3G all the time.

I had the same problem after PR 1.3 and Nokia's meddling.

Re: Maybe the unpleasant truth is that MeeGo really was too late and/or not good enough?

Meego just doesn't exist, so it is a drawing board OS that is easy to get rid of now, whereas supporting it if phones were using it takes resources, so it makes sense to jump ship.

Then again they...

Re: A little confuised on the N900/Maemo haters... please explain.

Re: For your next smartphone, will you choose N9 or switch to an Android phone / iPhone ?

I wil be running screaming from Nokia, never again to darken it's doors. The N97 was appalling, truly dreadful and I took a gamble they wouldn't release two in a row. Sadly they did and I got burned,...

Re: Buy a N900 now or wait for the Harmattan / MeeGo device?

Why get an N900? Meego will be ages till you see anything viable, most bugs fixed etc.

Get a stop gap phone, there are plenty of much better phones in hardware, support, manufacture quality,...

Question Re: n900 looks like a toy compared to this

You might get a Nokia phone with the same specs.

But what OS is this you speak of? Meego the "yet to be released and working on anything?" Or the very stable and working Android 2.2 as seen in...

Re: Why N900 failed on consumer market ?

Android is linux. It was done before Nokia did the N900. Nokia were copying to try and grab market %

I think the issue is, if it failed then support dries up and Nokia move on. Like anything...

Re: Some wonderful news considering N900, MeeGo, PR 1.3 and other good stuff

Interesting to see Meego comments, might even make the N900 usable, assuming lessons learned with Maemo are not taken forward into Meego.

Hope yet.

Re: [Maemo 5] What would you pay for, and at what price would you buy it? (N900)

Arif is correct, the N900 is an appalling platform to programme for, partly it's future with Meego being the chosen path, so make sure what you do is Meego based, not Maemo. Mainly however Linux is...
