Hmm, I thought XViD too...

Somehow feels like we are manual proofreaders helping Nokia...

Thanks for the link!

I noticed Speed Dial in specs but the manual said nothing about speeddialing. With myE90 I loved the portrait HW keyboard to have one press speeddial. Just one long press on 2-9 numberkeys and it dialed preset number. I wished so hard something like this was implemented where long press on contact image would do the same trick. I didn't see speed dial anywhere in the manual, I hope it is just missing from the manual but not from the device.

Please everyone... stop making up problems and issues.
If this is the case they should write it clearly and allow for turning off second stage of geotagging. Second stage is evil: extra connections draw from battery, and it uploads my data to some undisclosed servers.

Evil perhaps, but it's seriously cool being able to take a photo and have it automatically tagged "Eiffel Tower". Even if the photo is actually of a pine cone or sunset or something

Hmmm, Infrared port is NOT IrDA compatible? Is that good or bad.

I suspect it may be good, as every one I found that is IrDA has an operating range of a few inches. This implies (to me) that its designed to operate as a remote control rather than data transfer (as we have Bluetooth/WiFi for that) which would be a good thing.

That's fine. The manual's just wrong then.

Remember what I said about not making up stuff? What second stage are you talking about? If you're refering to what I said about the phone guessing where you are, it's not uploading anything but using cell phone towers to figure out where you are. No connections, no uploading. Same stuff most phones today can do.

AVI is just a container. It can have, for example, DIVX or XVID video inside it.

See, http://maemo.nokia.com/n900/specifications/

Video playback file formats: .mp4, .avi, .wmv, .3gp; codecs: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, H.263

To ensure proper functionality of the touch screen, remove the protective film from the device display.

Do not cover the area left of the touch screen with, for example, protecive film or tape.
How the fsck are we supposed to protect it then?
