Nokia N900

Nokia’s N900 is more of a mobile computing device or mobile Internet device than a phone. It’s bulky, but like the N96 or N95, it’s still easy to carry around. The 3.5-inch display is bright and clear with a surprisingly
responsive resistive touchscreen. 
The slide-out QWERTY keypad takes a while to get used; it’s small, but the placement of the keys is good. In addition to the 32 GB of built-in memory, the N900 also supports MicroSD cards of up to 16 GB.
In keeping with today’s multiple-desktop trends, the N900 off ers widget, shortcut and bookmark support, enabling quick and easy access to your favorite features,although a few applications took quite
a long time to load. For existing Nokia users, switching over to the new OS will be a cinch as they’ve tried to retain as much of the Symbian UI as possible. Also,you can use any and every part of the UI without the use of the pesky stylus.
The music player, although capable of clear tones, dishes them out at a very low decibel level. The N900 doesn’t have preloaded FM radio, but it has a built-in antenna, so you can download an FM radio app. The video player supports almost all codecs, including DivX and XviD. Connectivity options include 3G, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and USB 2.0. While the native browser is fantastic, a few of its functions didn’t work. Push mail is also fully supported.
The handset’s GPS module took quite a while to locate a signal for Ovi Maps, and the Geotagging function didn’t work too well either. Image quality from the standard 5 megapixel autofocus camera was decent, but colors seemed a bit dull. The N900 has the poorest battery amongst Nokia’s handsets. On a full charge, you get just a little over 12 hours of usage, while Android devices and other N-Series handsets manage much more. 
As much potential as the N900 may have, it’s still a work in progress for the Indian market. One might as well go with the N97 or Mini instead, which off era almost as much as the N900 does.
