Thanks for the info qgil (I never had the feeling that the micro usb port looks cheap.)

After waiting for more than three months to get my hands on the device and beeing a bit upset about Nokias customer relation ship handling I must say that I am very impressed with the device, love the things I can do with it and well, yes, congrats on Maemo teams great work (now I realized that waiting for soooo loooong was in the end OK).

Cheers,
Nek

Thanks qgil. This puts my mind at ease. Being a skeptic I am going to follow the issue closely a little as time goes on, but to know that it was actually thought about (and presumably tested to failure) does make a difference. Being an early adopter does carry some risks, to be sure. Thanks again.

Ummm, my unit was ordered on Dec. 9th from newegg.com, after their "2nd shipment" sold out.

Ditto, even though I've had to unplug mine 2 or 3 times to get the computer to see it.

yes i get that too, but it seems to be a software glitch not hardware...

This doesn't seem to be isolated to pre-production ones. Case in point ^^

Good to know, our companies pre-production (first manufacturing run) device just lost it's USB connectivity to a bump in the road at an inopportune time on the way back from a show.

The connector on my production unit feels stronger to me, but thats a totally subjective assessment. Keyboard has a better feel to it as well

Any possibility we could get some clarification/reassuring on how the durability was improved here?

Is that (one of0 the reason(s) for the initial delay?

Also, how does the mounting of the micro-usb on the N900 compare to that on the N810?
