Helped source N9's for folks here (and myself) and loved Harmattan. Stuck around for Sailfish. Now hoping folks like locusf and Stskeeps come out with whatever I will build, make or buy next.

Sry for ranting but this video always makes me frustrated. To figure that we're in 2016 and the usefulness of phones is way way worse than it was in 2009 (n900 in particular), it blows my mind. It's like WTF happened? :/

The masses spoke (with their buying power). They wanted convenience and not capability.

I fear you are right but I am sure tbere is a market for capability too.
The trouble is that capability is not on the market. The manufacturers wanted cinvenience too.

With a very jaded position; I have to disagree somewhat. Capability is already there... always has been. Capability (read: power for informed users) has never gone away. It's just that it's that small of a market and folks are not buying into that in large enough numbers and remain fractured. That's where I disagree; folks just do not buy into those markets - they remain fringe users and thus minimal impact.

The trouble is that capability is not on the market. The manufacturers wanted cinvenience too.
I think you just nailed it. It's easy to market something that does what you want and do it easily. It's harder to support those things that do whatever you'd want but you have to leverage logic, understanding, research and of course, intelligence versus profits.

Hi guyz, what about Neo900 ? How is it going ? I still have my N900, I was so excited about the project, but now, no news ? The N900 is still a good phone i use sometimes.

By the way, it's been a long time (about two years) that i did not flashed it, I'm looking for a way to save my messages (maybe in a way i could access them from a computer or flash - copy them back to the N900), any way would be great.

Second request, as Opera link closed their service, does someone know a way to copy the settings from opera (in the N900) so that i could copy them back when i flash the phone (or even a way to copy them inside opera browser on the PC - speed dials, notes, bookmarks)

So that's it, a way to save my messages and the opera settings.

Apart from that, the N900 is still great as a phone, and i use it since 2010, I've been through all problems: screen, usb, now dead speakers, but it still rocks, especially the keyboard, i don't know why phones with keyboards do not exist anymore.

You guyz keep on make this forum alive.

Well many of us are. I daydream about a 7-inch tablet with Maemo from the N900 on it. I don't use the N900 due to the browsers being so bad, but that OS is so so good.

I didn't say that you or others were not a fan.

Maemo has never been ported to any other device that it was not intended for in retail or otherwise. I have no faith that will happen this many years later despite the talent that surrounds us here at TMO.

I think Maemo 5 would be an UX nightmare on anything bigger than 5 inches. Too many controls are in the corners. But I do agree. Maemo 5 was a good OS, almost great. Too bad it also hit a dead end on the N900 and had so many "WONTFIX" issues.
