I like you Nokia N900. I really do. But PR1.1 came, and I was excited by the progress Maemo was making.
But I am tired of waiting:
for PR 1.2.
for Ovi Store to come out of Beta and have more than 15 applications
for half the apps not being able to install from App Manager because of PR 1.2
for waiting for applications. Sure the community out there is doing an excellent job with Barriosquare and Witter, but these are people working on limited resources.
I really did like the N900. But its been over six months, and Nokia has failed to deliver. Sure they have fixed bugs here and here, but at the end, I still have a device that claims to have (almost) 1 GB RAM and still lag.
It still barely has facebook support. No twitter or facebook integration in the contact list. Sure it can get facebook profile pictures but thats about it.
And the absolute worst fact is that when I click on the phone icon, and click Select Contact, it takes 4 seconds to load my contacts. 4 seconds lag on getting my contacts is just unacceptable.
I see my friends with Android and iPhone and I agree their OS has been there for longer, but its been more than 6 months Nokia.
I am tired of defending an expensive device which still lags, still doesn’t have apps from major sites (flickr,digg,facebook), has flash that kills the device and GPS which is honestly a joke (Ovi maps)
As much as I hate to say this, I am disappointed Nokia, and I shall be selling my cellphone soon for Android.

P.S. I am not trolling. I have the highest respect for the developers who are still spending their time and resources in making apps for this and I hope they continue doing so. I am just tired of being left in the dark for an update release, not knowing whether or not Meego will be supported. I love the browser, but an app is much better. Facebook flickr, etc are sites I can use, but rather have an application. I don’t want fart apps, just applications that will help my lifestyle.
I still love my N900, I am just moving on.
P.S. Isolano also pointed that there is still no Ovi suite or Ovi plater support
