    just show him the browser, and he will be ordering it the next day! The N900 is currently the best web browsing mobile device, and oh yeah, making phone calls is pretty cool too!

    Don’t buy it until MeeGo is either abandoned or is implemented. I’m an N800 Linux tablet owner. We’re now like the N770 owners totally abandoned by the Nokia corporate beast. N800 and N810 only lasted a couple of years before abandonment was complete and the company moved on to N900.

    How long before N900 is abandoned for a new MeeGo gadget, leaving you stranded like us in NeverEver land? It shouldn’t be too long if very recent past history of Nokia Linux devices is any indication……money wasted.

    Maybe Mer can save us from total extinction…..

      Larry, I have an N800 too that I haven’t booted in months. I know how you might be feeling left out. But really, did you think the N800 would be supported for ever? The N900 in my opinion was a natural progression of maemo; and MeeGo the next step. Obsolesence goes hand in hand with progress in technology.

      In this blog, I show how useful the N900 is – in my life. How could it be “money wasted”? The device is great the way it is right now. Its not perfect but is still very capable.

      I don’t try to sell it to everyone who is awed by the device. The decision to buy is the buyers. If the phone/pocket-computer does not do what you need it to do, don’t buy it. If it does fill the needs, and the budget allows, why not buy?
