Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

Good point. I probably should.

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

Realistically, you're probably right.

I remember a long, long time ago - must have been at least six months - when the board was a quiet backwater. People could discuss the advantages and...

Re: Whats an alternative to n900?

No, I haven't used one. Yes, supposedly a Android 2.1 version (with 4G WiMax as well) is in the works. Its current name is the Supersonic. Here is a short video that just showed up:

Re: N900 NOT upgradeable to MeeGo

Intel did pull their Meego titled netbook download. Right now there is no Meego distribution in the wild. Instead of using "!" (not) maybe we should use "~" (approximately) and entitle Maemo 6...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

For what it is, I would tend to agree with you and I think your points in response to Endri are useful. If the next product is to be better than this product, we should be discussing weaknesses as...

Re: N900 NOT upgradeable to MeeGo

But from their point of view, what's stupid about it? It will cost them money to make Meego work on the N900. It will not sell any new units. And I strongly suspect that this community will not want...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

I know, I have one of them, the N810. I got it to replace my Palm TX whose screen died. I run the same type of programs on it as I ran on my Palm. If I could have gotten the NanoNote at the time I...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

In defense of the OP, this is the same person who, in response to the poll "Would you turn in your N900 for a full refund?" said: "are you mentally ******ed? I won't change my n900 with anything from...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

My point is that without the phone the N900 would just be one computing device in a continuum of computing devices and, for the price, you could get better computers or, for significantly less, you...

Re: N900. After 5 month it's a total delusion

It's exactly making a go-kart and calling it a Porsche. All phones, tablets, MP3 players, laptops, netbooks, servers, desktops, and mainframes are computers. It's the size and the power that...

Re: N900 NOT upgradeable to MeeGo

I fear you are right but you shouldn't be. A developer should program for the most capable device and both the app and the OS should gracefully degrade the app when the capability doesn't exist. If...

Re: Whats an alternative to n900?

As far as upcoming phones, I'd look for the Dell Streak (or Mini 5). It has a 5 inch screen so it should be much easier to read.

You might also check the browser to see if you can change the...

First, I will point out that Google has responded by saying Android is “no more [a fork] than Red Hat Enterprise Linux or any other distribution vendor. All kernels are in some way a fork for some...

Definitely more fundamental. Vodafone which owns Wayfinder is shutting it down and has no plans to use existing Wayfinder products in the future.

Before everyone gets their hopes up, the MD500 is just a prototype now. "MD500" does not even show up on Hott's website. Whether they can meet their announced price and what their version of Android...

Re: Android code removed from latest Linux kernel

Given the choice between Microsoft's bloat, Apple's control, and Google's size, I'll take Google.

Back to the OP, I think the issue is overblown. After all, until Android, there was no viable...

Re: Android code removed from latest Linux kernel

Google's response is that they need more time to incorporate Android into the kernel code:

Re: Motorola DEXT

The DEXT is also known as the CLIQ. I wonder if by similar form factor you mean "a device that's both heavier and bulkier than it realistically had to be"? Or maybe "looks and feels like a testbed,...

Re: is that true? the next N9** will use Intel CPU?

I would agree, my post was meant to point out that it's OMAP4, not OMAP3 that has what is traditionally considered a dual-core device.

While the "confirmation" can always be rescinded (it was,...
