Maemo And the Nokia N900


Published on

Ari Jaaksi's opening presentation of the Maemo Summit 2009 in Amsterdam. Ari Jaaksi is the Vice President of Maemo Devices R&D at Nokia Corporation.

  • I have been the proud owner of the N900 for nearly a month now. I also own an HTC Magic and think the N900 is a far superior phone. I am a Linux user (Linux Mint and Sabayon) on my computers and love how open this phone is.

    I am still playing with the phone and learning but am getting to grips with it. I have added the testing repo which has opened up a lot more to play with.

    Look forward to chatting to all the other N900 users at this really does feel like an enthusiasts phone, not just another run of the mill handset.

I had a hands on today and the better part of a year, the N900 is, as came away with fairly positive Nokia handsets tend to be nowadays, a impressions, for an iPhone user.” healthy piece of hardware.” "...The N900 is certainly looking intriguing, and our hands-on earlier today did nothing to change that opinion.“
  5. 5. But there are things to be worked on What the media said "As of today, the portrait setup is available only for the dialing screen, contact list, home screen and gallery (when rotating images). And that's about it. All in all, this shortcoming definitely takes a lot of points off Maemo5's tab…” “We would have assumed Nokia would have worked multi-touch into this latest version of its tablet computer, as their competitors nearly all have this capability now.”
