qouth the wikipedia:


excuse my stupidity. I can't make sense of this. n810 plugs look like micro-b, yet it would be logical to use micro-a.

Help please!
The plug I linked to on ebay has a micro type B plug on one end and a type A receptacle on the other to plug in normal USB devices (mouse, keyboard, USB sticks, hubs, etc...). The plug is an OTG adapter so it will switch the N810 into host mode. The plug you linked to from Amazon are just gender benders - male to female. It will not put the device into hose mode and a software switch solution would be necessary.

Injection is necessary regardless of cable used if your device requires more power than the device can deliver. The NXXX do not provide enough power to power some USB sticks, harddrives, etc... so you'll need to provide the power. If the device is in host mode you could use a powered hub.

Nope, that's the always online time, it probably means that it's updating your widgets and stuff trough 3g.

Also, is the USB Host port confirmed?

As I've said before, the port is USB OTG. All of the hardware is there.

Something like this looks like it would be pretty handy:

I can testify that you get easily more than 2 days with device idle (and no open app misbehaving). Screen is a drainer, so all use consumes a lot, but it easily lasts a full working day of normal use.

konttori: can you elaborate a bit more on 'full working day of normal use'?

Approximately how many hours of the following activities for the day:
- voice call
- use of IM
- use of web
- use of email
- use of apps (what kind?)
- radio condition (3g/wifi/bt)

On the Nokia website, if you compare the N900 with another mobile by clicking on "Compare", you see.... you see...... :
Display colors: Up to 16 million colours

Finally, if there is no error on the website...

joshua.maverick:

There's no compass.

Anyone who said otherwise was not a trustworthy source, so, in the absence of any trustworthy information, they're wrong. And if there is, Nokia hasn't told anyone about it, nor has it turned up in any of the source code released by Nokia so far. If the N900 had a compass, why would Nokia keep it a secret?

Why do you keep asking?

ysss:

Battery life is one thing that the Maemo people have said that they're actively working on in these last few weeks before the device goes on sale. So any detailed numbers anyone could give you would be wrong by the time the device goes on sale.
