I still have my N900. And an S3. And: Browsing the Web on the N900... no thanks.
But the whole Chat/Communication/Adressbook stuff... Hell, i miss the N900. Not only the Hardwarekeyboard, the whole thing seems to be messy at best on android. And Apple? Never, not in my home.

im always on the lookout for something new but so far i come up blank, i tried many phones/devices like my freinds note II, and since i tried so many devices i only used it for 2 minuts and got insanely board...., gotta admit that even thou my N900 is slow (very much) compared to what's newer i cannot get rid of my N900 or use any other device, nothing comes close to offer what the N900 does for me, of course i want more Power, memory and most of all if im honest a x86 system so i can use the normal Ubuntu + wine to play "normal" games and such.

But would settle for a N900 thats is bigger, 2-4core cpu, 1GB+ ram and even ARM, but lately i don't use FM or IR so i could live without it.

I think you just said exactly what the rest of the members of this forum are thinking. It sucks big time, that a phone all of us would probably buy in a heartbeat will most likely never be made.

I would put money on it that Jolla are making it. Though it will be expensive and the keyboard option is likely to come later.

Also, any open hardware device could run Sailfish.

Switching to something newer than the N900 is like getting a new younger girlfriend, filled with excitement and danger..

At the end you may come to realize that you were driven by the irrational nostalgia wanting to relive the first days of exploring the N900 and that on long term you are stuck with something pretty but with little content, draining your life energy.

Luckily the good old N900 is perfectly accepting polygamous relationships.

I strongly suggest you as soon as possible completely examine your new phone as this is the typical price that the fake new phones are sold out of China and Hong Kong. These fake new phones use a repaired old N900 circuit board with new plastic and new fake Nokia accessories.
If you act quickly on a dud fake you can get most of your money back from paypal, search the forums for ways to spot a counterfeit N900.
My fake new N900 never worked properly was loaded with wonky apps that wouldn't load or reinstall, it bricked and won't go into flash mode anymore after attempting a firmware reflash, I am keeping it for parts.

well I like FM (sometimes my car stereo looses FM signal on highways, so I go with FM trx + 3g streaming radio) and IR (using Pierogi when I do not want to stand up to take the TV remote or when I want to joke my friends at restaurant/mall), but maybe I would renounce to them for a better cpu + ram

F$%^ It's a fake. I don't think I'm buying another N900 though.
