What language options are available on the N900? Since it isn't using Symbian, does it contain worldwide languages like the iPhone?

So far only selected languages. European, Russia a few Rich middle east countries (something Arab). I think it is still possible to get more language support in the updates :) it will have world languages when the next few updates or when it world wide release. which is still a big ?????????


Android has limited installation partition, which is 256MB of application space. And not very open as Maemo 5.

There will be apps porting to N900 in the next 3 to 6months and in 1year I believe there will be alot more than enough to use. eg. handwriting recognition, autofocus Video camera + stabiliser, etc... there already quite some apps in the testing Repository right now.

Extra-testing repo..
SNES app is taken out though cos of Nintendo threatening to sued NOKIA for copy right infringement lolz because NOKIA show a demo of the N900 with the emulator running a ROM without license lol

If only Nokia didn't balls up the N900 like they have.

The kick in the teeth is... I suspect Android will be ported to the N900 faster than Nokia can ship the devices.

So even if Maemo 5 licks gonads you'll be able to run Android on it anyway :D

Was really looking forward to the phone, but they took too long in my opinion. I ended up going with an Iphone 3GS. I'm sure the N900 will be great though.

I really hope the N900 does get heaps of good applications at a decent price as I find the availability of applications is what makes or breaks a phone's success, well, not entirely but would surely go a long way.

Dont worry bud. N900 will last a year without worrying. Nokia said they will only get one Maemo device out in 2010 before they working on the next maemo 6 lol. So they are planing to get Maemo 6 and new device by end of 2010
