I think that you can install ‘Contacts Facebook support’ (something like this it was called) and do not need Hermes.

I’m not sure what you mean by no DUN. Nokia PC Suite allows me to use my N900 as a network modem for my laptop and get online with T-Mobile 3G connectivity. I’ve seen tutorials to do the same on a mac and I’d be shocked if there wasn’t a write up on how to do it on Linux too.

Thanks, I did not realize the PC suite allowed this. I would be using Linux however, but I too would be shocked if there wasn’t a write up on how to do it on Linux too. Anyone seen it?

Thanks again speednut…

Again Day 4, I am still seeing what this thing can do. ;)

Why bother with DUN? Grab JoikuSpot and just connect via Wifi/NAT. Done. As for the phone’s cost, you’re paying more on a subsidized plan. Cell companies aren’t giving you the “free” phones for free. You’re paying for it, just as a bundled expense.

Even with AT&T, when I got mine direct, I moved the SIM over, and didn’t have to “upgrade” to a 3G data plan, since I don’t want or need 3G. That alone saved me more than the cost of the phone over the next 2 years.

I tried JoikuSpot, very nice, if they get out of beta, and my n900 stops rebooting everytime google loads. Very promising though, if they charge for it, I would probably just use DUN.

Hi, I’d like to react to this: “The main reason I have not been looking at the N900 is the price.”

I mostly agree with you, but I looked at the used prices. You can buy a 1-2 months old N900 for a very reasonable price, which is exactly what I did.

(I don’t care that it was used by someone else for some time, it doesn’t show on the exterior, and I also reflased the eMMC and the firmware, that’s it.)

hey there! nice blog, been reading through the last year now.

i agree that the N900 is a nice phone, but just like u said – its strange that a internet tablet doesnt have flash10.1 yet.
also its the same issue as with the older tablets. they had missing graphics drivers. N900 have graphic drivers in maemo but they are a bit outdated according to nokia. therefore it suffers from some VSYNC problems.

i will stick with the n900 though as its a really nice phone in many other aspects.

it was nice reading your review

kind regards
