I always get that feeling when listening to "Wind of Change" by the Scorpions.


You know what? I'd still buy it!
The Neo900 certainly would not fit my definition of "half-decent modern hardware" and quite frankly any more than 1k Euros would push my pain threshold pretty hard, but I still think the attempt alone deserves to be honored and the device would make for a pretty nice "curiosity of computer history" one day.
The hinge feels fine, but I'd have to admit that I have not used it enough to verify durability. I like the tilting display.

I had not realized until recently that the neo900.org home page has a timeline at the bottom. I have taken the liberty of updating it here: https://imgur.com/a/b9Optj3

I do not know what the best device for 2020 will be, but hope we have something real stunning.
Raspberry Pi phone?
Finally a Nokia phone with Intel processor arriving a bit late?
Strange mix of Roman and Greek numbers BTW, should it not been MMXX?

Yes, hinge is high quality. Even on N97 (a nightmare SW- and speed-wise) the hinge and build quality (I know we all had that GPS antenna problem!) was very stable and reliable.
I am not sure if I like the one on N900 (straight) or on N950 (tilting) better. After having used N900 after N97 I'd say I perferred the straight one using in hands. But on desk the tilted makes more sense. So 50/50.

THANKS for that one
Maybe neo900 team can handle this and put it on their web site?

I'm still counting on vacuum fluctuations to either reboot the universe or to spontaneously materialize a Neo900 on my desk.
