Nokia N900 with the Apple iPhone, BlackBerry Bold/Storm 2, LG BL-40, Nokia N97 Mini/N86/5800/E71, Palm Pre, Samsung i8910/Omnia II, Sony Ericsson Satio/Aino and Toshiba TG01
Here are some shots of the N900 with some current high end phones. In Alphabetical Order:
- Apple iPhone
- BlackBerry Bold/Storm 2,
- LG BL-40
- Nokia N97 Mini/N86/5800/E71,
- Palm Pre,
- Samsung i8910/Omnia II,
- Sony Ericsson Satio/Aino and
- Toshiba TG01
Initially the intention was to give a jist of the size of the N900. But since I was snapping away in phone retail stores, I didn’t get appropriate angle shots so you can see how easy it is to be deceived by comparison photos unless you see them flat, centre and horizontal with comparisons of [layered] length, width and thickness.
www.sizeasy.com/ helps if you want to compare phone sizes and you’ve got their dimension. This of course ignores curves/tapering which assist in the illusion that your device is smaller than what it actually is.
Ignoring size comparisons, the photos below are still worth a look for comparing aesthetics/design.
Check out the example below
BlackBerry Storm 2-
looking much bigger than the N900
Now N900 looks larger than the Storm 2
Another example. The Palm Pre is quite small, yes?
Sony Ericsson Satio
So in the following pictures, just remember that unless you haven’t seen the N900 before, they might be slightly misleading in making it look bigger than it actually is as these are taken in the angle which make the N900 seem unnaturally bigger.
New Chocolate, LG BL-40
N86 is small, this angle further enhances this diminutiveness
The TG01 is huge. It looks stupidly big. The N900 can sit on it and there’d be ample toshiba to border it. This angle makes them look pretty similar in size. They are not.
Nokia N97 Mini
Samsung Omnia II
Sony Ericsson Aino
And of course, Apple iPhone. Both looking pretty similar.
The only one that’s slightly useful for size comparisons is N900 vs Blackberry Bold. (This is my mate’s Bold, snapped these just as the lecturer was walking in – but still much better to have a flat surface to take comparison shots with)
N900 Vs Blackberry Bold
Didn’t take a width comparison but Bold is wider than the N900.
– I was actually looking for a new SIM and checking if retailers knew when/if they’d be getting the N900. On the way, I took some of these snaps.
