hit ctrl and at the same time r (receive) and p (phone) and this will magically give the phablet to the next person waiting for their N900 to arrive.
Yes i said it.....it's a phablet! and a phabulous one at that.
a phabulous phablet.

I try to look at this thread to see some tricks this phone can do and all I see is B****ing about the phone not shipping.
Quit hijacking threads there are enough threads of people complaining.

From the phone app drop down menu "turning control" allows you to set orientation, but also set it to launch the phone app when you turn the device to portrait. Seems to only work from the desktop.

in gnome terminal, CTRL + I is "tab" for filename autocompletion

CTRL + FN brings up special symbols missing on keyboard

If your N900 is bricked and battery is dead, you cant reflash OR CHARGE BATTERY: You must get another charged battery or external charger (mine was 27euro)

Keep an eye on your free space on the root filesystem with the "df" command. Do not allow this to fill up. User data should be somewhere under MyDocs

If you find something broken or not to your liking, contact the author or maintainer or file a bug report. if you are used to other commercial products, your inclination might be to first whine about a problem in a forum such as this one. In the case of Maemo and open-source apps, you have an opportunity to directly improve applications and help shape the future in a positive way.

That is an amazingly empowering feeling, and it is the most important N900 "tip" that i can pass-on.

cheers

If you lack a sense of humor I think the internet is the wrong place for you to surf...

Hey there, what external charger did you get? you can just charge the battery directly? Is it an official Nokia OEM product? (vs. some cheap charger from ebay/china).

I ask because I really go through the juice on the phone, would be nice to keep a standby battery around, but charge it externally and not through the phone.

Thanks,

-chris

How about just turn up the power of the cell tower and use that to charge your phone whenever it is powered on?

The USB charging is "smart", but what about the dumb charger?
