Good points:
Web Browsing
Bad points:
N900 has not got the option to 'group your contacts' & in my case it won't pair with my built in hands free of my 3 year old VW passat so making this phone useless to me. Now back to ever faithful N95

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Overall this phone is fantastic & has nearly all the extras one would expect from the world's leading phone manufacturer.
Great build and design, value for money.
Bad points:
For the ordinary person (non wiz kid) it takes time & practice to understand and make use of all it's fetures.
This is not a bad point but just my personal experience.
Apps limted at the moment, but hopfuly Nokia/Ovi store etc will equal their selection of apps to compete with Apple's iphone? Which they must in order to keep up with the world wide competition.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A very powerful piece of kit! It is almost perfect as a hand-held computer (with a phone included). Granted that you will only fully appreciate it if you are a Linux user. For the average "smart phone" user this little piece of dynamite maybe too much to handle.
Bad points:
Not really too many bad points, but I would have preferred it to be a bit slimmer and bit better sealed off (from dust and pocket lint). The battery life isn't great but not disastrous and should also be improved. While the design is very good and the build quality also good, it would benefit from sleeker lines.

Good points:
This is the best phone on the market. I no longer need my Macbook, the N900 gives a much more fun browsing experience with the absolute full internet (I'm talking embedded videos in facebook, anything you like, it all just works perfectly), and it's right here in my pocket! Skype video calling, excellent 3D games, as well as old-skool SNES and Sega Megadrive emulators (Pilotwings in my pocket!), I am in love with my phone, sad as that is :o)

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The phone is great! I love the built in skype, now I can talk tomy family members that are in another country on the go for free. Sound is loud and clear. More like a computer. It is heavy, but most Nokias are durable and can withstand the test of time. The phone also have updates for new or improved applications, so it can stay current withthe trends. Good, especially if you are in a contract.
Bad points:
The phone is not compatible with some things.For example, moblie banking with my bank. The N900 needs more applications.
