Video: Nokia N900 Homescreens – Multiple desktops

| October 9, 2009 | Reply

The N900, like the N97, has a homescreen which you can customize with LIVE widgets , contacts, bookmarks and app shortcuts. However, unlike the N97, the N900:

  • has 4 homescreens (effectively making 1 big panoramic homescreen)
  • the widgets/shortcuts are not locked into any specific position (like previous tablets)- customizing is very easy – delete, add, drag widgets where you want to place them.
  • you can have different wallpapers for each homescreen (note, the continuous wallpaper effect is done by having 4 separate wallpapers)

In this particular N900 we can see that

  1. first homescreen has calendar appointments, weather and some shortcut icons
  2. second homescreen has your social media widgets like facebook and twitter
  3. third homescreen has music player buttons, media icon shortcuts [video, podcast client, bluetooth] and bookmarks
  4. fourth homescreen has some more app shortcuts and bookmarks

Switching from one screen to another is fast and smooth.
