    hmm.. for a moment I thought this post has something new.. but I am sure all the N900 enthusiasts know the points you mentioned. Theres nothing new up here. Infact most (can I say all) the above can be done with latest s60 smartphones too.

    No!

    It’s slightly above average – iphones, most Android phones and Palm have processors between 550 – 600MHZ.

    Early next year many “smartphones” will running at 1GHZ – e.g. SE x10.

    The 1Gb of memory makes it appear much faster.

    An excellent review, this phone is one of a kind. The 2 comments are completely wrong. S60 smartphones are very limited in their capabilities and freeze on a regular basis. JEL does not understand much about processors, there are many different types. The nokia N900 uses the Cortex a8 processor which is the fastest around and also has a dedicated graphics memory and only the samsung omnia hd and sony satio have the same processor. The difference with the nokia n900 is the maemo operating system which is the best around and you can open 32 applications at one time. Please look at the youtube demonstation videos and you will see why this is the best phone around.
