- No innovative stuff
- Device too thick and heavy and still it misses a lot.

This is making me a little bit shakey, seeing what google offers with nexus one. I hope nokia does something right with the FW otherwise im feeling screwed for having such a painfull contract for it.


now thats pretty weird, anything above 2 is too much brightness for me, used to have iphone 3g.. i dont recall much difrence concerning that.

you right nokia might have been at bit too fast at getting the n900 on the market, my guess is they wanted it out before christmas, so sure it has a few bugs and ovi store isent up yet... but nothing that wont be fixed within a month or 2.

i'm not sure what you mean with "device is too thick and still misses alot"?? i mean the n900 pretty much has everything.. including a fm transmitter!! thats pretty innovative for me. damn nice for road trips..

and.. "no user friendly apps"? sure theres a few command line apps... out of hundreds of apps.

maybe you should explain exactly what you mean instead of just coming with some random complaints

Good points.

At 5, my N900 beats the HTC HD2 and the IPhone on normal.

Also, that's a good point, the resistive touchscreen is a light hog, frankly they can't really be compared, it's like comparing a window with a screen door.

I see many people lamenting the lack of capacitive. For what? Lose the ability to write on the device, draw, pin elements in the GUI for the ability to zoom an image with 2 fingers instead of the one-handed zoom button or gestures?

What DO people see in capacitive anyway? It's not like resistive takes a full kilo of force to register - any softer and it would be hard to use, IMO. On IPhone, the writing is bigger to be able to be touched, it scrolls all the time to read and you zoom in and out like crazy to read, then click. I find it less than optimal.

Multitouch is good for large screens.

I am confused by this:

The N900 has a light sensor. How bright the screen is depends on the amount of ambient light. The brightness still changes according to the ambient light whatever the setting - the setting determines the average.


Set the screen to maximum brightness and take it to a very well-lit place and it will be the brightest.

Someone made a brightness app for the N800 that was perfect. It allowed something like 30 increments. In dark environments these devices blind me with light. And in a theatre, for instance, the very lowest setting made it visible to only me--so I was not that $&?! with the destracting light.

markr041: and hardest to read. T have its brightes, take it to dark place and shine a light into the sensor.

lancewex:
Really? Now I know we have different settings. In pitch black my first setting is uncomfortable to read because of low brightness. With all lights, screens, etc off in a room with shades, at night, the screen is barely visible. Readable but just.

Sometimes the sensor kicks in a little, making it readable for half a second, if it catches a little light, then goes back to gray. The white text on the screen is _about_ as bright as the keyboard.

Less than blinding.
