The Telegraph gives the Nokia N900 a huge thumbs up

| November 4, 2009 | Reply

Of all the technology blogs and news sites I read, the ones I find most intruiging are those that are intended for the general, non-tech-geeky masses.

n900 2Why? Though there’s no nitty gritty info, I like knowing how information on the gadgets that fascinate us have trickled down to the non-geek public. It’s from these sources that are really going both influence and reflect what people are actually thinking about that device. IMO, once you’ve penetrated the minds of those least versed in technology with even just the name of your product, you’re onto a good thing.

It’s surprising, and also fantastic to hear that Nokia are finally getting a steady stream of good press about a Nseries device. The N900.

On Maemo, the Telegraph writes:

“powerhouse performance that could put the iPhone to shame”

Apparently, an industry expert reckons the N900 will be a game changer

“Maemo will deliver the next generation of ‘computer-like’ experiences…The emphasis on rich visuals and multitasking is key. Multitasking will become increasingly important in a world where the phone is being used to access multiple functions, applications and services. It’s a challenge that Apple faces with the iPhone.”

Multitasking is what the N900 does best with absolute ease. Multitasking isn’t just about having lots of things open, but being able to easily switch focus from one activity to another. This is what the N900 can do, and quite beautifully at that. N900 5

I’m really excited about the N900. Nokia needs to have that one uber phone that when a member of the public is asked what’s the most advanced, high tech phone right now, the answer is some Nokia device. Although the N900 is really outstanding, it’s not packing all the punches it should/could. That’s going to be the N900’s successor (which I hope is going to get a memorable 2 syllable or less name!!!! not a code designation!!)

The successor of the N900 is the supposed final step towards Maemo for the masses and Nokia Smartphone/Mobile Computer perfection will definitely (and should if Nokia don’t f*ck it up by removing something crucial!) resonate with the masses interested in High End mobile devices. But, with competition at the top so fierce already and hotting up even more, Nokia better hurry and get to releasing the ‘intermediate step’ N900 first a.s.a.p.
