O perating systems play an increasingly more important role when choosing a new mobile phone. Besides the design and the speed, many of its functionalities strongly depend on the phone’s operating system. Nokia always uses Symbian OS for high-end mobile phones. Symbian enables installing applications, and also managing your agenda and email account is easy and straightforward. Besides Symbian, Nokia also uses a further developed Open Source operating system, the Linux-based Maemo. The Nokia N900 is the first phone to make use of this operating system, where it is called Maemo 5.

Nokia N900 Mobile computer review

With the implementation of the Nokia N900 Maemo 5, the menu structure is entirely new, which means that it takes time to get used to.  After startup, there are a number of home screens for the user to scroll through. Widgets, average shortcuts or contacts can be added to a home screen. This structure is found on several mobile phones nowadays and is very convenient. It allows you to create your own user environment, containing everything that is important to you, in an easy way.

Nokia N900 review - Maemo software

The Open Source character of the Maemo software naturally ensures easy installation of additional applications. The Nokia N900 mobile phone standard features an FM receiver and infrared, although there are no applications at this time that make use of it. These features have been added for developers, thus getting more out of the N900 in the (near) future. This way, applications can be developed for the Nokia N900 that will transform the device into a remote control or radio. The OVI-store did not (yet) work during the test period. But there are several other channels to get to additional software.
