My, my, Nokia is really trying to piss off N97 users who are still being plagued by the many different bugs and problems that the N97 brings. First, they introduce the Nokia N97 Mini which has a more stylish battery cover and uses more kinetic scrolling in its UI, and now, the Nokia N900.
Check the video on my sidebar to see the N900 in action. Although the Nokia N900 doesn't have the same OS as the N97, it may be argued that what it has is a better OS, so more salt on the wounds of early N97 adopters. The Maemo OS sports a lot of kinetic scrolling action and arguably has a better homescreen than any of Nokia's Symbian touchscreen mobile phones.
Another cool thing about this phone is that the browser supports flash websites. What it means? No more stand-alone YouTube player as you can now watch YouTube videos from the browser itself. And the icing to the cake? Multitasking. Based on the videos I've seen of the Nokia N900 in action, it can support up to 10 open applications so unlike the Nokia N97, the Nokia N900 might actually be Nokia's true iPhone killer. Unless, of course, Nokia messes up again and the whole mobile phone is laggy, buggy and problematic.
