I'm going on my 6th year of owning N900s and I don't want another phone.

Still use mine daily for Rockbox and Notes!

Browsed maemo.org for the first time in a couple years today because i miss a lot of things from my N900 (most lately in focus was Conboy, as i tried again to find a note taking program for android i like half as much). Was asking myself why i ever gave up on my 2 N900s and thought i'd edc one for a few days to see how it went.

It turns out that the reason i stopped edc of the N900 was because one has a broken digitizer and one has a dead backlight -- and both have very sketchy microUSB port connectivity at this point. It's unfortunate that the display components on these were so susceptible to the subtropical humidity here because i haven't liked as much the build and keyboard of any other phone i've had since.

Back to OP: now that i think back, I think it was the browser limitations that were the main reason i didn't buy another N900 when these died. If you are willing to carry a tablet or don't do much browsing on your phone, i think the N900 could easily do for edc. In this era of increasing information security threats etc. it would probably be a smart thing to do.

the only downside is lack of processing power for all these fancy js websites, other than that I see no real issues with it

Severely outdated device security, maybe, although security by obscurity is better than nothing.

'Go Advanced'. You will get a selection of smileys on the right.

Re N900 - I recently upgraded from Sailfish to Maemo but everybody already knows that

thanks for showing me the way ( smileys )

after leaving Fremantle for a couple of days i always come back, can't live without maemo but this time i definitely need a rooted 4g volte enabled andr*oid wingman for n900.

@ pichlo - since sailfish is based on android drivers, so is a rooted andr*id without gapps better than sailfish ? i think its a bit off-topic, sorry

Still using N900. Should replace its touchscreen somewhen, scratched too much (this particular device didn't have screen protector in time, should remember to put one when upgrading the touchscreen). Qwerty keypad scratched a little, too, for that matter; and should remove dust and sand (this white thing inside gets scratched too easily though). And still haven't got the courage to do anything about broken off microUSB ports yet (too tiny and too fragile). Calls, SMS, IM (IRC), camera (photographs), light webbrowsing (MicroB, since Fennec is slow, and Opera isn't much of a help), email(Modest), ssh-X-ing (since FontForge doesn't seem to work on Maemo; could anybody please try it out?), music and occasionally video (with stock mediaplayer; wish I knew how to get it to display lyrics for videos and subtitles for songs, as well as support MIDI). I seem to generate problems; even AutoComplete Editor doesn't recognise the language anymore (ID 0) while auto-complete does work.

Thank you. Best wishes.
