Nokia N900 Review

 

In many ways, Nokia's oddball device matches every other phone in this story, feature for feature. It's kind of like a Swiss Army Phone made by Finns. Front-facing camera? Check. Rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss Tessar lens? Check. Touch screen and a...

The N900 provides desktop widgets and a physical keyboard—two features we love

Western Digital My Net N900 HD dual-band router review:

 

Western Digital, one of the biggest hard-drive makers, officially entered the realm of networking today with a family of five wireless routers, with the My Net N900 HD being the top tier. This totally new router offers something its peers have never...

The Western Digital My Net N900 HD dual-band router offers a fresh approach to wireless routers with seven Gigabit LAN ports and an effective FastTrack Plus QoS feature. The router's 5Ghz band and its storage feature also performed very well.

The My Net N900's 2.4Ghz band could use improvement. The router doesn't support 802.11ac, nor does it have an easy way for users to access its connected USB external drive over the Internet.

The Western Digital My Net N900 HD is a whole new kind of Wireless-N router. At release, the router is a decent investment for home users but will need better firmware to work at its full potential.

Today, Nokia stands at a fascinating fork in the road. Let's consider the facts: first, and most unavoidably, the company is the largest manufacturer of

Best-in-class browsing experience ; Unlocked AWS 3G, a rarity ; Extremely hacker-friendly

Nokia N900 Review

 

The N900 is sort of an odd creature. Owing to its Internet tablet heritage, it's more like a MID that makes calls than a smart phone. The Maemo 5 operating system is unique (if somewhat challenging), and this device has all the right stuff under the...

Fast processor, 32GB of memory, Very good browser with Flash support, Multiple customizable home screens, Sharp 5-MP camera

Bulky, Expensive, Maemo 5 Linux may be confusing for some, Limited number of apps

Nokia N900

 

Nokia fans disappointed by last summer's N97 smartphone, get excited: The Nokia N900 ($570, unlocked; price as of December 18, 2009) delivers on its promises of fast performance and excellent Web browsing. It also offers solid multimedia features, as...

Excellent browsing experience ; Superb camera

Interface can be tricky to navigate ; No MMS support

The Nokia N900 is ideal for techies who want a lot of customization and power; anyone looking for apps and aesthetics may want to go with a more mainstream smartphone.

Nokia N900

 

Hack away! The Nokia N900 smartphone invites true geeks to make it their mobile computer.

Linux-based OS. Powerful processor. High-resolution screen. Excellent voice quality. Eminently hackable.

Elegant-looking interface can be confusing. Few apps, unless you're a Linux hacker.

Nokia N900 review: A new hope

 

It's crystal clear by now that the Nokia N900 has almost nothing to do with the traditional Nseries values. The full QWERTY side-slider may look similar to its double-digit mates but the Maemo experience is completely different...

The internet tablet genes are strong in the Nokia N900 so connectivity and web-browsing are its greatest virtues. The large high-res display and great typing skills are the right kind of backup but we've seen plenty of similar packages already. We told...
