N900: A Gallery

Hopefully by now you’ve all read Dan Lane’s Really Mobile N900 opinion piece from last week (based on the development unit he ‘borrowed’ from Ewan Macleod), and, while we all sit around with baited breath (read: twiddling our thumbs) waiting for the actual release date, November 19th I managed to lay my hands on a production ready model to try out some of the imaging technology.

“…I find myself sitting here at my desk two months later cradling what is, in my not so humble opinion, the best mobile device that Nokia has ever produced.”

High praise indeed from Mr Lane. But when it comes to the camera, exactly how good is it?

Judging by these images, “Stonkingly good” is  the answer.

  1. excited about Maemo – yes
    excited about N900 – not so much

    i don’t know, since using a capacitive Screen on my G1 Loan/my own Hero, i just can’t get along with resistive Screens anymore. i’m also not too excited about the Battery Life, and therefore going to skip the N900 and wait for whatever Nokia has in Store for us in the near Future!

    Can’t comment on battery life, but screen-wise I couldn’t tell it was resistive… it is very good and the resolution it epic.

    It’s SO good, it’s got Ben grammatically in a muddle!

    Look… why you no listen? It good. It much good.

  2. This best turn out to be a good phone. I’m waiting till my contract is up before I get another phone (I say that every time, I bought 7 phones last year, to my shame). Am currently rocking a 3GS and it’s pretty shweet. S60 bores me nowadays, especially with nokia being a dick about things like n-gage. Hopefully maemo = win though, I miss real buttons πŸ™

  3. common…stop pushing the date back, i want my phone now!!! AAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH
    I’m gonna be sitting in front of my door on Thursday lol

  15. I thought the optics in the N900 were the same as the N97. Would you say there was a noticeable difference in quality between the photos taken by these two? And, if so, why? Is it all about the software?

  16. Similar, not the same. The focal length is slightly different from memory. Quality-wise I haven’t seen a big difference, but the camera start-up and processing times on the N900 were much much faster when I did a side-by-side test with a proto N900.

  17. well i just spoke to nokia direct sales departament 08003316021 and they confirmed the phones will be sold in shops simultaniously after stock up in 4 weeks time!!!! BUT if u buy directly from nokia on number above u have it next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALY SOME GOOD NEWS
