Nokia Maemo software

T he 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.

Standby time of the Nokia N900 handset

The included 3.7V Lithium Ion battery, type BL-5J, is able to provide a maximum standby time of 96 hours and a maximum of 6 hours of talk time, according to the specifications. These specs are not the best, especially since you never reach the maximum values in practice. The Nokia N900 has to be charged every day. For intensive use, it is advisable to purchase a car charger and/or an extra battery.

Nokia N900 features 32GB internal memory

The Nokia N900 is not just a mobile phone, it is clearly a combination of a mobile phone and an internet tablet. The Maemo operating system creates a whole new experience, and thanks to excellent Internet, e-mail, multimedia, and additional applications support, the large memory capacity is not a luxury. The Nokia N900 mobile computer standard features an internal memory of 32GB. If this is not enough for you, or if you just want to transfer the memory card of your previous cell phone, this is also possible. The N900 supports microSD/SDHC memory cards up to 16GB.
