Re: N900speedtest 10$ data Tmobile vs 30$ data ATT Iphone 3gs

When I was on the $10 web2go, speedtest.net had my proxy/gateway somewhere in the midwest (Kansas?) when I was physically in Maryland. Latency was ~180ms+...no good for time sensitive data (VoIP). ...

Re: Next phone after N900

Sounds like someone who has valid points...and I love my 900. Its hard to argue that the 900, in its current state, would be a feasible choice for business users vs. a Blackberry for example.

Re: Nokia N900 with REALLY bad battery life

:confused:

I think the consensus is that the battery lasts about 24hrs on average. But as always, YMMV. Being logged into Skype will tax the battery and that 24 hour time will be harder to...

Re: Nokia n900 for $199 from NokiaUSA

Roger that. Mine got wet and the LCD backlight is out. It still functions but is really dim, and only visible if external light shines on it. Not sure I want to spend $100 on a new panel, if...

Re: Nokia n900 for $199 from NokiaUSA

You sure? The $289 states "If applicable". It seems like any discount is based on "what you have to trade", and is not guaranteed.

Re: A broke USB port, a peek at the competition and now back to Nokia

Good luck with that...I hope you have some micro-soldering tools. The USB leads are tiny and spaced closely together (0.5mm?). You'll also have little to no room to work on one side of the port.

Wow...I know that using bold for (2) proper names in one post is pushing forum rules, but I've always been a bit of a rebel. Thanks for pointing that out though.

Re: Nokia has exciting news for N900 users

The "only" reason I'm shopping another phone (most likely android) is that the 900 will "most likely" never have sling mobile support.

Other than that, Flash 10.x would be nice, but if the 900...
