I'm a little disappointed from what we've heard from Nokians about the n900 so far. Stuff like "it's only step 4, it's good but yeah well if you like it - that's cool"

Here're some videos that give the n900 some credit. Best phone money can buy atm!

Finally someone from Nokia praising the n900! They should let Peter do all the marketing.


Sorry if someone had posted the videos somewhere, i couldn't find them here.

Yes, I agree with all of the above. I understand this product much better now from watching these videos. Peter's message is clear: It's not a phone, it's a best-in-class pocket computer with many communication options and configurations. And hopefully the MMS stuff will get fixed.

The form factor might be wrong, but the n900 obviously has as much potential as a Blackberry killer as it does an iPhone killer. Peter put too much emphasis on the community filling in the gaps. Even though this is a "cool" device, my opinion is that Nokia should have a narrowly focused business application and marketing division that forces corporate IT departments to think twice about using RIM. Harmattan and it's devices could be the real game changers, and they'll have the n900 to thank for that.

Blackberry territory is hard to penetrate.. I hope they make Blackberry Connect for Maemo. That way it'll act as a 'backup plan' to the end user, they can still make use of blackberry proprietary systems while preparing to move to an open infrastructure. Just like Bootcamp on every Mac that lets them dual boot to Windows.

Ok, call it a trojan horse.

You and I both! I continue to be confounded and frustrated by Nokia's apparent resistance to business and industrial applications. 3 years ago I demonstrated how the products are ideal for mobile auditing situations with the N800-- the N900 is even more useful in that and related areas.
